Single project migration error

Could you please help me which is hurry.

You will probably need to:

  1. uninstall Greenhopper in your new Jira instance
  2. reinstall Greenhopper version 6.1.3.1
  3. Import your project
  4. Upgrade Greenhopper to the latest version.

You might also search the backup file for all reverses to 6.1.3.1 and replace them with 6.2, this might or might not work and should be done at your own risk.

Looks like you are running into a known problem mentioned here:https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRAKB/Incompatible+Greenhopper+version+during+project+import+in+JIRA

Try restarting JIRA and hopefully that would fix it.

I have two 7.0.5 servers and I am trying to export a single project and import that project into the second server and get the following error. I have restarted both servers.
