I am running Atlassian JIRA on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin). I would like to automatically start JIRA whenever the system boots. For this purpose, I created script
/etc/init.d, similar to the one described in Atlassian's Wiki.
I can manually start / stop JIRA by calling
/etc/init.d/jira accordingly. However, JIRA does not start during the boot process. In
/var/log/boot.log I see messages like
Starting jira... and
jira started... which I added in
/etc/init.d/jira; however, it seems that the Java process does not survive the boot process as there is no Java process after reboot.
Any idea why the Java process does not outlive the boot process?
