Due to some reason, our vendor didn't do any upgrade on jira server, so our team will be handling that once we go on production. Right now, this vendor still working on bug fixes on testing server.
I wonder what to prepare upgrade on production site - first backup (to a zip file?) , second upgrade (somehow?) , third -?
Do we require downtime at all ?
Thank you in advance!
Yes you need downtime, you can't upgrade a running Jira, as it replaces files.
Backup the database, the home directory and the installation directory somewhere safe.

It will give you a good idea of the process and time to complete. Additionally, if anything does go badly, you'll have time to fix it in a non-production system.
