I have to Upgrade my JIRA. What are the steps for getting the backup of the older instance?

AS checked online for fallback method, I found only one method of taking backup and that is using the proxy server. Can we use the same server with different home directories and take the backup to create the instacnce as proxy server is not our preferred option as of now.
