How to backup and restore complete bitbucket instance installed on centos 7 ?

We have Bitbucket installed on my own server, with Centos 7 platform.

We have tried taking the backup of the "Atlassian-Bitbucket" from the "/var/atlassian/application-data/bitbucket" to a different location and have installed a new instance of the bitbucket on a new machine and pasted the above directory along with the PostGres SQL dump to the new machine. But still unable to restore the entire repositories, users, projects etc.


* Please provide assistance on the same, as in how to backup and restore properly and what all directories need to copied and where to be placed for an instance to be running as it was.

It would be greatly appreciated if you could take up a remote session and help demonstrate this.

HI @Ithead Findoc 

Welcome to the community!

The different locations you meant to say another machine or the same machine?

If there is a different machine then you can follow the steps mentioned on Atlassian Migrating Bitbucket from server to another server

By different location I did not intend to restore it to a different server only. But I did want to restore to another server or the same server.


Pls help on that

If Its in the different server then you can follow the documents attached to my earlier comment.

Make sure you should point out your new bitbucket to the old home directory and also restore old bitbucket DB backup to new DB (if you are changing the DB as well).

Then you can restart the new bitbucket server manually.

Hi @Ithead Findoc ,

Is the new Bitbucket instance starting at all? 

The new instance is starting but none of the previous repositories or users or  projects are being shown there.

Did you change the BITBUCKET_HOME variable in <BITBUCKET_INSTALL>/bin/ to the new directory?

If not do so and restart BB
