Run JIRA 6.4 and 7.1 on same server?


We are looking at upgrading from JIRA 6.4.11 to 7.1 and I have a question...

We have two JIRA systems running on the same physical box, no VMs involved. One is production, the other is for test purposes. Each system has running integrations pointing to different servers (production versus test, if that is not clear :o)

When we upgrade, we want to upgrade the test environment, run some more testing than we've already done on another machine, and finally upgrade the Production environment.

Anybody know of any issues of running two instances of JIRA running different versions on one server in general and/or more specifically 6.4 (or prior) and 7.0 (or later)?

Anybody done it without issues?

its not work for me as well, we changed the default port for both and tried to run but at a time only server is up, 

We done the setup for JIRA v6.4.14 and JIRA v7.1.1
