Hi Kanchana,

  • First of all you need to create a backup from your 6.2 JIRA.
  • Install JIRA one new server
  • Install all plugins manually. Check firstly if new version of JIRA support this add-ons
  • Restored db from backup

If you will have any question during this process please let me know
