I dispose of two JIRA servers of distinct versions and we want to migrate projects from the JIRA older version to the JIRA with the newest version using the export/import JIRA's native tools.
I know that first I have to upgrade the version of the old one to the same version of JIRA destination.
Thanks in advance.
You've answered your own question!

Database work in JIRA is often ugly, and usually leads to all sorts of "interesting" breaks and recovery work.
However, if the data model for your two JIRA systems has not changed, you can sometimes make it work by changing the version numbers in the xml. Stlll not recommended, and really needs proper testing, but it might work. I certainly wouldn't bother doing 6 -> 7 or any other major jump, but 7.0 to 7.2, or 6.1 to 6.3 may be worth a test.
