We’ll assume that your server is ready to have the software deployed on it.
yum y install wget epel-release
Afer the file has been downloaded, well need to make sure we can execute the file too.
chmod +x atlassian-confluence-6.14.1-x64.bin
This next part is critical so do not skip it. You need to download mysql conector v5.1.47 – https://dev.mysql.com/get/Downloads/Connector-J/mysql-connector-java-5.1.47.tar.gz
Once you have that file downloaded, got ahead and unzip the files use the tar command to do it too.
tar -xvf mysql-connector-java-5.1.47.tar.gz | cd mysql-connector-java-5.1.47.tar.gz
Find the bin.jar file if you are using this connector with linux and copy it to the following direcory
cp mysql-connector-java-5.1.47-bin.jar /opt/atlassian/confluence/confluence/WEB-INF/lib
Now we can go back to the /tmp folder and start installing confluence, or Jira, on the server. You will get the following output:
Unpacking JRE ... Starting Installer ... Jan 13, 2019 10:43:54 AM java.util.prefs.FileSystemPreferences$1 run INFO: Created user preferences directory. This will install Confluence 6.14.1 on your computer. OK [o, Enter], Cancel [c]
Choose the appropriate installation or upgrade option. Please choose one of the following: Express Install (uses default settings) , Custom Install (recommended for advanced users) [2, Enter], Upgrade an existing Confluence installation 
You can proceed with a custom install if you want, but we will enter 1 in our CLI for an Express install with the default settings:
See where Confluence will be installed and the settings that will be used. Installation Directory: /opt/atlassian/confluence Home Directory: /var/atlassian/application-data/confluence HTTP Port: 8090 RMI Port: 8000 Install as service: Yes Install [i, Enter], Exit [e]
Press Enter again to start the Confluence installation which will give you the below output:
Extracting files ... Please wait a few moments while Confluence starts up. Launching Confluence ... Installation of Confluence 6.14.1 is complete
Your installation of Confluence 6.14.1 is now ready and can be accessed via your browser. Confluence 6.14.1 can be accessed at http://localhost:8090 Finishing installation ...
Now that that has been completed. Start gui on the local server. Then open up Firefox and go to localhost:8090. Once there, you will begin to setup your Jira server and configure the database connection.
- use the username and password that you configured for the database
- make sure that you have the right port, 3306 is the default port, and ip address of the sql server
- make sure to test the connection before proceeding.
After going through the database connection configuration section, feel free to follow the on screen instructions and start playing with confluence or jira.
