Installed JIRA on Linode(privately owned virtual private server provider). It works for 5 mins then can't be reach from browser.

If restart, it works again (sometimes) before it drops the connection again.


The linode has 1G memory or the SWAP size is insufficient to run JIRA.


  1. Please check if the Linode met the JIRA Hardware Requirements & JIRA Sizing Guide
    • For a small number of projects (10-20) with 1,000 to 5,000 issues in total and about 100-200 users, a recent server (multicore CPU) with 2 GB of available RAM and a reasonably fast hard drive (7200rpm or faster) should cater for your needs.
    • For a greater number of issues adding more memory will help. We have reports that having 2GB of RAM to JIRA is sufficient for instances with around 200,000 issues. If in doubt, allocate more memory than you think you need.
  2. Try to increase the SWAP size from 128MB to 2048MB.
