Select Backup File - Error (Invalid Path)

I am getting an error message when selecting the backup file to import a project.

I don't understand why the path to the file is not valid.

Below is a screenshot from Putty & my Jira account.

You have told it to look at the root of the disk, then /backup/

JIRA imports are loaded from <jira home>/import, so it needs to be relative to that.

I suspect all you need to do is skip the leading / - try backup/  If that doesn't work, try brute force:

mv to /var/atlassian/application-data/jira/import

and just put in the file name box.

I moved it back and it seems to work now. Thought I had tried that before. Thank you!
