Problem

When starting up JIRA the following error appears when attempting to access the application:

The following appears in the atlassian-jira.log:

org.ofbiz.core.util.GeneralRuntimeException: Could not determine database type. (Unknown storage engine 'InnoDB')

Cause

In this case, after updating the innodb_log_file_size there was a missed step(ie. removing the existing transaction logs) in the procedure causing problems when starting MySQL.

Resolution

For further explanation on common problems when setting the innodb_log_file_size, please read MySQL: Failed Registration of InnoDB as a Storage Engine.

(info) Please refer to MySQL documentation for more details on InnoDB options and parameters: InnoDB Startup Options and System Variables
