I am going to upgrade my Jira 4.3 instance to Jira 5 shortly and testing with our test license has gone well so far, however our production environment is too precious to lose so I want to ensure I have a solid roll-back plan if something fails.
I noticed the installer wizard takes local backups of the installed files. Assuming I got at least that far in the installation process and something failed (e.g. installation, or broken feature), how can I roll back to the previous state?
We use a remote MySQL database, do I need to mysqldump that or is the Jira installer's backup sufficient to restore 100% functionality & data?
