I have a test system that I performed an in place upgrade from 6.4.8 to 7.0.11. Other than some issues with plugins it seems okay. So now I have a 7.0.11 system. Can I copy or migrate my production 6.4.8 database to this system and will Jira do whatever upgrades to the data to bring it to the 7.0.11 level?
Ultimately I want to go from 6.4.8 to the latest, 7.4.1. Should I go to 7.0 or 7.1 as the intermediate stop prior to 7.4.1? I've seen different answers?
You're high enough in versions that you can use much the same process each time.
You really do need to go from 6.4 to 6.13 before trying to go to 7. 6.4 is too low a version for the jump to 7 to work. (That said, it might, but I wouldn't bet on it)
You should be able to stop JIRA, run the 6.13 installer and tell it "upgrade" and it will do the work for you.
Then once fully upgraded, the docs say you should go to 7.0 with the same process, and then 7.latest.
Sorry, I've completely misread this and typed completely the wrong things, several times.
I meant 6.4.13 - you can reliably upgrade from 6.4.13 just as safely as the advised level of 6.4.14.
You *might* be able to jump from your 6.4.8, but I can't quite recommend that - I'd test it a lot more than 6.4.13/14
I did figure that out after a bit. I didn't think there was a 6.13, but who knows??
Maybe you know the answer to this question I know you can't upgrade a database by importing older XML files, but if I replace the database with older database will Jira make whatever database/schemea changes at startup that are needed to match it with the runnning software. Or can that upgrade only happen by running the installer with the upgrade process?
