Need to copy backup files during JIRA 7.0.5 upgrade?

Hello,

During a recent upgrade from 6.4.9 to 6.4.12 (on a Linux Red Hat server), and following the instructions for the rapid upgrade method, several customized files needed to be manually copied to /opt-atlassian/jira-home from backup after the upgrade.  We are now upgrading to 7.0.5 using the installer found at https://www.atlassian.com/software/jira/update.  Will we again be required to copy the customized files over manually?

Thanks for your time,

Lucas.

Hey Lucas,

                   When you Upgrade JIRA, the data directory has to be carried over manually.
