Per many recommendations (including Atlassian's) I have been backing up my JIRA instance using:

First, when I fully restore the database in advance of the JIRA installation, JIRA does not recognize the existing data at all and goes though the process of a fresh DB creation. When the installation is complete, the data is definitely not in JIRA... presumably because JIRA altered the restored database (but I didn't dig into this).

When I do this, JIRA still does not recognize any of the restored project data. I can log in successfully to JIRA, but he project list is empty.
What is the correct way to restore JIRA from a full database backup?
