Your plan is correct, i prefer to upgrade the plugins and then do the data migration.
If your working on a virtual enviroment, its a good idea to make a previous snapshot too.
The log files are the ones at the atlassian doc
Just an update about our migration of jira from 6.4.12 to 7.0.0 on a different OS and Database was successful.
As I said earlier, I copied the Home directory and restored from XML backup on an empty database. It all went fine but then since I could nt see any issues in the project. I reattempted the whole process again and this time I removed the plugin folder and this time it actually told me about a plugin missing when I opened Jira.
Found which plugin it was as it only said a number for custom field. I looked up that custom field in SQL under the table custom field and it showed me that it was profield. so installed profield and Updated UPM, and Upgraded Service desk and after that Jira came up fine.
Thanks for all your help. I really appreciate it.
When I tried full reindexing I again got error 500.. I think anything which needs to contact database is giving me error 500.. I am planning to reinstall entire thing from scratch however I wanted to confirm the sequence..
did id I follow anything wrong here?
For some reason rigth now jira is coming up however the dashboard is not there .. All I see is top portion where we have dashboard, project, Agile etc buttons are there and the bottom part which says Atlassian Jira 7.0.0 etc..
I tried renaming the plugin subfolders( all four of them) and re started the service and still same issue. So I have decided to do a clean install once again and see if that makes a diff. However this time I am taking a different approach. I am trying a inplace upgrade of Jiar 6.4.12 in a cloned env( windows 2008) and then I ll move the jira home directory in the other jira 7.0.0 which is on windows 2012 server.
Thank you Gaston. However I am attempting upgrade one more time right now however I need help with the sequencing of the actions that I am performing just to be sure that I am not failing because of following the wrong sequence.
Would you be able to confirm if I should remove Plugin folder altogether after migrating the data directory to jira 7.0.0 server and before restarting the service?
Also I wanted to tell you that my source server ( old 6.4.12 server) is running on SSL whereas new (7.0.0 server) doesnt have SSL.
I need to figure out when and at which stage I should configure Jira to run over SSL so that when I am moving application data directory there is less discrepancies. Hope I am making sense.
SO my current plan is
