Hey @Andrew TOG ,

Could you try rebuilding your Index? (in JIRA)

JIRA does not read the DB directly to show you the issues but uses the index. All issues can be perfectly there in your DB but if the index is not there it wont show anything.

(gave me a scare myself once when I thought i removed everything with an upgrade)

so just do a index rebuild and you should be fine!

yes , thank you that great  it back. the  data back but image and attachment in  still not back.

Well attachments and images are on disk. So that has nothing to do with the DB.

if you moved servers you need to copy over your JIRA Home directory too,different%20location%20as%20explained%20below.

no i am not move the servers , still in same folder. but thank you . 

that help me to explore  and fix the  problem.
