Migrating from existing JIRA (Windows) to AWS on Ubuntu?

We're migrating a locally hosted JIRA installation up to an AWS instance running Ubuntu. Has anyone done this before? We're trying to figure out if we need to follow this guide (https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Migrating+JIRA+to+Another+Server?continue=https%3A%2F%2Fconfluence.atlassian.com%2Fdisplay%2FJIRA%2FMigrating%2BJIRA%2Bto%2BAnother%2BServer&application=cac) step by step or if we really just need to migrate the XML files that result from a backup and the attachments/indexes folders and do an import.

Any guidance is appreciated!
