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

Deleted user May 06, 2015

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 ( 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!

3 instail all plugins that were set on old JIRA

4 restore from backup file
