Jira 404 error – The requested resource () is not available.- Apache Tomcat/6.0.32

So I’ve ran into this error on my Jira 4.4 installation a few times. At first I didn’t know what it was, but now I know and here is the solution

HTTP Status 404 –

type Status report


description The requested resource () is not available.

Apache Tomcat/6.0.32

The problem is that I am co-hosting my SQL Server 2008 database with my Apache server – which holds JIRA. Therefore Apache starts quicker than SQL Server, so when Jira tries to connect to the database it is not available, times out and Jira does not start.

Simply wait a few minutes for the db to start and then execute startup.bat inside the bin folder in JIRA, usually located in “C:\Program Files\Atlassian\JIRA 4.4\bin\startup.bat”

The error looks something like this

Tren Urbano ya casi llega a Curridabat!!!!!!

Should we really be happy for Netflix Latin America?

Being a loyal customer during my multiple trips to the US, I was THRILLED that finally Netflix is coming to Latin America. Until yesterday…

As soon as it became available, I signed up and went straight to my beloved Documentaries section. I am disappointed…

Look at what I found, there are only like 20 documentaries, mostly low quality :

Check out the equivalent US section taken at exactly the same time, it has hundreds of titles in multiple categories:

Netflix: will the Latin America service be equivalent to the US one? Please don’t disrespect us. Just because we live in a third world country, that does not mean that you should give us a third world service.

Also, don’t make the mistake of adding translated titles to spanish. We want the movies in their original language!
