Upgrade procedure for jira with SSL and HTTPS

We want to implement HTTPS and SSL, and we have setup our test server. However after an upgrade, I noticed that we have to setup HTTPS and SSL all over again.

Is it possible to copy and override the modified files such us server.xml and cacerts file from a backup or each time we upgrade do I have to reinstall the certificates?

Secondly, are there modifications to these files when going from version 6.x to 7.x?

Thank you

You can copy across the cacerts file no problems, server.xml may change between versions however (particularly 6 to 7 as Tomcat changes from 7 to 8). Best thing to do is diff the old and the new files to verify if there are any changes.
