I am researching installing JIRA, and the rest of the Atlassian Suite, onto an Ubuntu 12.04 server.
It appears that not long ago everyone recommended installing JIRA manually. This was due to lots of configuration problems and bugs related to Java 7.
I found a manual installation guide, but I would prefer to be lazy and have the install automated.
Ubuntu 12.04 /12.10 Ultimate Atlassian Production Server : Crowd + JIRA + Confluence + Stash + Fisheye | Single Sign On (SSO) | Fully Integrated | PostgreSQL ( pgSQL ) + Oracle Java 1.7( JDK 7 ) + Apache2 + SSL ( https ) + SNI (Shared SSL) + PROXY_AJP ( ajp ) + Optimised
Does the default JIRA installer for linux work well?
Is there a reason to manually install JIRA?
