2. So I downloaded, installed and configured your latest version 1.9.1 backup client on the new environment, but now I'm getting this error:

3. By the way I've dumped and recreated by stash database several times, the same I always do:
mysql> drop database stash; Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec) mysql> create database stash CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_bin; Query OK, 1 row affected (0.00 sec) mysql> flush privileges; Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.01 sec) mysql> grant all privileges on stash.* to 'stash'@'10.1.119.13' identified by '<passwd>'; Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec) mysql> flush privileges; Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec) mysql> quit
4. These are the configuration settings within my backup-config.properties file:
stash.home=/mnt/external/stash_home stash.user=stash stash.password=<passwd for the stash user with admin privs> stash.baseURL=https://stashstag.vidder.net
jdbc.override=true jdbc.driver=com.mysql.jdbc.Driver jdbc.url=jdbc:mysql://<ipaddress>:3306 jdbc.user=stash jdbc.password=<passwd for stash database user>
Any help would be appreciated.
In regards to your questions:
That's expected. I just ran a test backup of a 3.8.1 release, and we do warn our customers about this situation (backup will work but restore won't – please read carefully the WARN message below):

Therefore, you can trust the backup that you have at hand and just restore with a newer version of the restore client as indicated on the message you shared with us. I am going to work on documenting this better on our Backup Client guide.
The cause for this is the same as the one described below:
From your description, though, you're creating the new database correctly. It should just work. Can you double check your character set encoding and collation are set correctly on your database (the KB above explains how)? Also, can you make sure you're connecting to the right server where you created this database?
Fixed! 1. The database needed flushing since I tried with 1.4.0 before trying with 1.9.1, which caused too many connections. 2. I forgot to add the database name in the properties file. (although I didn't think I had to enter anything in the recovery portion of property files since import was to same database name, ip ,etc.). But adding the database name worked:
Good to know that you're good to go. You can find examples of the JDBC URL on: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/STASH/Using+the+Stash+Backup+Client#UsingtheStashBackupClient-ExampleuseofJDBCproperties
I did double check that the database was set up correctly and had utf8. I even dropped the database and recreated it several times. See below:
Any other suggestions?
Should I try downgrading my stash instance to an older version compatible with your 1.4.0 backup, import my backup using 1.4.0 and then upgrade stash instance back to 3.8.0? My concern with this process is that the backup data came out of 3.8.0 and may not import properly to an older version. But this seems like the only other option to try.
