About migration from MySQL to PostgreSQL

Hi!

How i can migrate from jira 4.4 with MySql to jira 6.4 with PostgreSql?

I use these instructions:

(

  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))

)

 

But i constantly have error: (ERROR: invalid byte sequence for encoding "UTF8": 0x00).

My actions:

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?

 

Thank you!

Hi Sergey, 

From the wording in the error it sounds like you might hitting  the behavior described in the following article:

Try running the xmlcleaner and see if this helps out.

 

Cheers!,
