From Upgrading JIRA Applications , I'd like to do a low (not critical) upgrade of our Linux 7.1.10 JIRA standalone instance to the latest JIRA 7.6.1.
From the grid, the only upgrade option is "Upgrading JIRA using the installer".
Where do I find the instructions for manually upgrading a standalone JIRA 7.X instance in Linux? Otherwise, what's the point of downloading the tar.gz?
We've always been upgrading using 7.X (and quite frankly prefer the manual control of this process).
You can use either the Installer method or Manual method, according to the grid. The instructions linked on the grid are appropriate for your Jira version:
It does require you to download the compressed zip or tar.gz archive, because you still need the upgraded versions of the files for Jira. The difference with manual upgrade is that you are essentially installing a new Jira instance and then importing the data from your old instance.
I hope this clarifies things for you. I would recommend reading thoroughly over the manual upgrade instructions to make sure all the steps are clear before proceeding.
