I'm still busy with migration JIRA from Windows 2003 to Windows 2012. I have setup some steps, but I'm not 100% sure if I got everything covered. Can somebody review these steps:
Is this correct or am I missing some steps?
Sort of. The home directory copy will pull in the plugins, the database import all the config for them. What I can't remember is if the database import will pull in the actual .jar files (it does in Confluence). I never needed to know, because copying the home directory includes them.
You don't need to do the setup + plugins, just install a plain Jira. The rest of your process will get the plugins. I'd fill out your plan a bit more with explicit stop/start points - you want it down when you do any of the database work. I'd also add in a quick check on the plugins after the import - go into "manage plugins" and check all the ones you expect are there and working. And check for updates to them too.
