Import steps for major upgrade

Hello,

Currently, we have the following products and versions:

Jira       7.2.3

Crowd  2.10

Confluence 5.10.8

All of which are running on Windows Server 2008.

I am in the research phase regarding a major upgrade in which all of these products will the latest and greatest, and the supporting OS will be Red Hat. These ervers will be initially created with the latest Atlassian software.

My question is this: are there import steps that I can take that will allow me to keep the data from the above three applications and have the newer versions work with the data?

I am already aware of my Confluence instance having a database on a MySQL 5.5.34 Community Edition and what I need to do to get that database up to the latest, 5.7.xx, through incremental steps first.

I appreciate your time and any hints/notes/documents that may be forthcoming.

Respectfully,

James

Hey James, 

Please follow the Atlassian documentation, e.g. the documentation for migration JIRA to another server https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver071/migrating-jira-applications-to-another-server-802592269.html

Besides this as always test it first in your testing environment and think about your rollback path ;) 

Cheers 

Christoph 

Just thinking out loud...

Will our current versions of Atlassian software work with a 5.7.xx MySQL database? Or, a 5.6.xx MySQL DB?

Best,

James

Here are the supported platforms (including db) for your current versions:

Crowd 2.1x

JIRA 7.2.x

Confluence 5.10.x

Please follow Upgrading Confluence , Upgrading Crowd and Upgrading JIRA applications to upgrade in order to keep your existing data.

I look forward to any follow up questions.

So as I understand it:

Jira       7.2.3

Crowd  2.10

Confluence 5.10.8

Will work with a MySQL 5.6.xx DB

?

This helps out quite a bit.
