Just walking through some of the steps as the JIRA documentation is a little too skimpy in parts for my liking. First … go get the Linux version of JIRA. IMPORTANT: Make sure you click “Show All” and download the 32-bit version if you’re unsure. I tried this whole nonsense with the 64-bit version and got a mind-boggling error (Syntax error: “(” unexpected) More here. I’d say this whole process can be done in 15-20 minutes including all the Googlin’ and head scratching.
