Hi. I'd like to install JIRA 7.2 on my new server.
The XML backup i have is from Jira 6.2.
Can I just go ahead and install 7.2, and restore the 6.2 backup on it? Or what's the best-practice for this?
- Same linux OS.
- I'm not allowed to upgrade the existing version of 6.2.
Thanks in advance..
You'l need to create a temporary 6.2 server, import the data, then upgrade it to 7.2.
Data imports from different versions can work as an upgrade, but I wouldn't try 6.2 to 7.anything. Crossing the major release version usually fails spectacularly. (In your case, I'd test importing a 6.2 into a 6.4 install)
