This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Upgrading JIRA applications using a rapid upgrade method
Under Instructions for prestaging and testing, Hyperlinks are not working. They still point to old dead pages.
DISCLAIMER: Take care, this howto is not for everyone. I have done this 100's of times and know it from the top of my head. Doing it wrong and not being able to recover is not an option, i will not help you to recover if you mess it up.
Url's are hardcoded in the database in million places. I use linux tools for this job.
This is how i do it:
#dump the production database to a database dump: mysqldump jira -ujira -pjirapassword > jira.sql #use sed replace to change all hostnames to the new hostname of the testsystem: cat jira.sql | sed 's/http:\/\/jira\./http:\/\/jira-testing\./g' | sed 's/https:\/\/jira\./https:\/\/jira-testing\./g' | sed 's/http:\/\/confluence\//http:\/\/confluence-testing\//g' | sed 's/https:\/\/confluence\//https:\/\/confluence-testing\//g' > new.jira.sql #copy the new.jira.sql to the test server #..and import it: mysql jira -ujira -pjirapassword < new.jira.sql
