Database Troubleshooting and How-to Guides
We've created a series of troubleshooting and how-to guides to help customers setup, maintain and troubleshoot the databases used for their Atlassian Products. Because information varies between database vendors, we've broken these guides down by each vendor:
- Microsoft SQL Server Troubleshooting and How-To Guides
- MySQL Troubleshooting and How-To Guides
- Oracle Troubleshooting and How-to Guides
- Postgres Troubleshooting and How-To Guides
A few important things to note:
- If you're making changes to a database, you should ensure you have a full backup before beginning. If possible, you should ensure you trial your modifications on a test instance first.
- Database modifications have the potential to be dangerous - because they bypass any logic checking from the application UI. You can potentially break applications by inserting invalid data. We prefer to make changes through the application UI where possible; leaving database modifications as a last resort.
- You should ensure that your database is supported by the current version of the application you're running; and that your database is setup in line with the requirements for your particular application.
