*nix-based operating system administration is outside the scope of Atlassian support. This document is provided for information-purposes only.

On *nix-based BSD operating systems, the best practice is to install, configure and run each service (including JIRA) as a dedicated user with only the permissions they require.

To run JIRA automatically on FreeBSD:

  1. As root, create the file /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ (code shown below), which will be responsible for starting up JIRA after a reboot (or when manually invoked). If you are not using postgresql for your database, change the REQUIRE line to whatever is in the PROVIDE line in your database init script.

  2. Make the init script executable:

    chmod \+x /usr/local/etc/rc.d/
  3. Make the init script readonly:

    chmod \-w /usr/local/etc/rc.d/
  4. Add the following line to /etc/rc.conf
