Restoring Jira Projects from an old build to a newer build

I am currently trying to restore a back up from Jira on demand to a local instance. Upon selection of the file (.zip) to restore I am getting the error:

This data appears to be from an older version of JIRA. Please upgrade the data and try again. The current version of JIRA is at build number '6260', but the supplied backup file was for build number '6318'.

Is there a solution to get around this error? Please
