Moving jira from one server to another

Hi Team

I want to move my Jira application from one server to another as there is some issue with my current server

As server will change my server IP and Home directory will also change.

Can you please suggest me the steps how to go about it

Dear Mohammed,

You should follow this guide;

In this guide, the database is backed up with XML.. however.. you  yourself can also make a backup of the database and skip the XML.

So.. things you should do;

Copy at the very least your attachment folder to your new installation, and make sure your database is connected. This should be enough for JIRA on the new server to run.

Friendly Regards,
