installing jira on ubuntu

so i tried xplanner and that didnt really fly for me. now jira, but why must it be so hard to plainly state how to install it etc..

with mysql:
create database jiradb character set utf8;
jiradb.* TO ‘jirauser’@’localhost’ IDENTIFIED BY ‘mypassword’;
flush privileges;

download jdbc driver:
(wget … seems to difficult to get the url so seems to require a browser to download)

copy jar to /common/lib

customize entity.xml file:

run build, cd to and

cd dist-tomcat/tomcat6
emacs jira.xml

move the webapp.war file to a suitable directory.. fix the user rights for tomcat6 user
