I have a Jira server, installed on a ubuntu 12.04 Virtual image, hosted on Oracle Virtual box.
Oracle virtual box is installed on a mac mini osx mountain lion server 10.8.2
Last night I took a snapshot, then rebooted The entire device. I had correctly shutdown The ubuntu server prior to rebooting the Mac mini.
Upon restarting I open up Virtual box, and start the virtual image. I had selected the Fisheye user to autologin upon boot so that the fisheye service would start automatically.
The virtual image of ubuntu starts, and boots to fisheye automatically. However when I attempt to navigate via browser to the jira interface I at first received a http status 404 resource unavailable. Apache/Tomcat 6.0.32. Not to be dismayed having had issues with my Virtualbox before I rolled back to a later snapshot. I then was able to navigate to my Jira login page but received a curious error, and was unable to log in. (view attached file) I googled this error, and pretty much unilaterally received errors from jira 4.- regarding a upgrade error. I was unable to login to this interface with several users. I then rolled back to another backup I had some 2 weeks prior and that too resulted in the strange error in the file attached. I then rebooted the whole device again, restored to the snapshot I took prior to the whole debacle, and now I am at the 404 error once more.
It is worthy to note that I did not setup this install of Jira, and am sadly taking over for someone else who is of course no longer available for comment. I am not married to this particular install of Jira, but I cannot afford to lose the data. Furthermore I need to be able to determine if infact the data that Jira is keeping is on the ubuntu virtual image, or somehow on the mac mini server in the database there.
I have checked the disk space, as I know that Jira will freak out if it runs out of disk space. Currently here is what I have with a df -h
alexey@jiravm:/var/log$ df -h

The virtual device has an 8 gig dynamically expanding hard drive, and is currently only using 3 gigs.
The full partition here belongs to and .iso file that contains the VBOXadditions.
