These are the steps I've used.

install JIRA on the new server as normal

Schedule down time

Disable logons except for admins

Create back of data using built in function (I suggest using zip file option)

Import backup on new server using built in function (this can take a while)

Move folder with attachments to new server

Verify everything by logging on using the localhost URL

If everything is OK update DNS to point to new server

Reenable logons for users
