Move JIRA to a different server


I just bought a JIRA server license and installed it on my localhost for initial evaluation. Now I want to install it on a different (more permanent) server machine, but I don't see clearly how this can be done. I guess a new Server ID will be generated, but I won't be able to obtain a license key for it. I guess there should be a way to deactivate the previous server an activate a new one, right?

it is pretty simple.

  • create backup of current server if you need/want
  • install a new instance
  • apply current SEN to new instance
  • restore from backup

but here is the documentation you will want to review - migrating-jira-applications-to-another-server

Thanks a lot!
