This seems a known issue. Try the resolution at https://confluence.atlassian.com/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=389285646

First, think of this as a two step process:

  1.  Upgrading JIRA (no change of database) - see https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Upgrading+JIRA
  2. Changing the database - see the database parts of https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Migrating+JIRA+to+Another+Server (it's basically down to "export data, point JIRA at new empty database, import data", but you need to check over all the steps in there)

You may well do both at the same time, but I'd recommend a logical split so that you can complete one safely before starting on the other.

Make sure the DB versions are supported.

Ok. I followed this instruction but i constantly have error: (ERROR: invalid byte sequence for encoding "UTF8": 0x00).

1) I backup my data (xml file) from JIRA 4.4 with MySQL DB. — OK

2) Install JIRA 6.4 with MySQL. — OK

3) Restore data from xml backup. — OK

4) Backup data (xml file) from new JIRA 6.4 with MySQL DB. — OK

5) Install PostgreSQL 9.3 (supported by jira). — OK

6) Stop JIRA 6.4. Delete dbconfig.xml. Start JIRA 6.4.

7) Configure connection with PostgreSQL DB. — OK

8) On next configuring step i choose "Import data". — OK

9) Type backup file name. Insert license code. Start restore. — OK

10) I see parsing process. After few seconds i getting error message.

 

Any ideas?
