stash backup client error

Hi

I have java version


java version "1.6.0_20"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.9.7) (suse-1.2.2-i386)
OpenJDK Server VM (build 19.0-b09, mixed mode)

when i run

java -jar stash-backup-client.jar

I get following error

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: com/atlassian/stash/internal/backup/client/BackupMain : Unsupported major.minor version 51.0

Could not find the main class: com.atlassian.stash.internal.backup.client.BackupMain. Program will exit.

Is it something to do with my java version?

Thanks

Hi Raminder,

Yes. Please upgrade your Java to version 7. The Stash backup client only supports Java 7 as of version 1.3.

Best regards,
