How to upgrade bamboo to 5.13 without affecting Bitbucket/JIRA on same database.

According this page:

Upgrading Bamboo to 5.13 should change mysql parameter and set lower_case_table_names=1.

But I have all other Atlassian instances on the same mysql database such as jira/bitbucket/confluence.

I don't have this setting on my previous installation on centos with mysql, but after changing  lower_case_table_names=1. 

other instances can't be started anymore.

Hello @pupie cn,

Please follow steps below:

  1. Stop any Atlassian applications using the MySQL instance
  2. Dump each database that needs to be recreated
    eg: mysqldump --databases bamboo > bamboo.sql
  3. Use DROP DATABASE to drop each database that you're recreating
  4. Stop the MySQL service
  5. Add lower_case_table_names=1 to your MySQL configuration file
  6. Restart MySQL service
  7. Reload the mysqldump files:
    eg: mysql < bamboo.sql

You should do these steps for every DB you have in your MySQL instance. If you do all that points other Atlassian products will be not affected

Thanks for your answer, I tried with JIRA, it works.

Great, this worked for me as well.
