The Switching Databases documentation may help.

Will do that but how do i connect mysql db through Jira?

Run the script in JIRA_INSTALL_DIR/bin/config.bat and you'll find the database connection in the Database tab.

Hi! I have deleted the config file under jira folder and was able to get back to Setup screen. So i have managed to configure Mysql database, thanks

Hi Tshepo

Since the structure from both database system are different, believe that the best approach would be:

1. Create a XML backup from HSQL instance

2. Import it into a MYSQL instancehehehe

Also, if you're trying to import a few number of ticket, perhaps you should try to do it by a CSV file. For further details about that, please use the following link as your guideline:
