jira version compatability

I just installed Jira 6.2.3#6260 as a test instance. I imported the data from one of my dev team's on-demand instances running 6.2.3#6318, and I got this:

JIRA Access Constraints

You cannot access JIRA at present.

<th width="40%">Description</th><th width="10%">Time</th><th>Level</th><th width="40%">Exception</th>

Failed to start JIRA due to a build number inconsistency.

The data present in your database is newer than the version of JIRA you are trying to startup.

Database version is: 6318

JIRA app version is: 6260

Please use the correct version of JIRA. You are running: 6.2.3#6260-sha1:63ef1d6dac3f4f4d7db4c1effd405ba38ccdc558

I followed this to the letter: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Migrating+from+JIRA+OnDemand+to+a+JIRA+Installed+Site

A database schema change for a minor rev change? Really?

Hi Brian,

you can't import data from higher version (#6318) to a previous one (#6260). This should be the problem.

Hope this helps,
