I have need to migrate JIRA 6.3 to a new VM on another network.
I was about to install 6.4 and follow migration instructions when I noticed the
new 7.0 version.
It will not be possible for me to upgrade my existing production host
and then migrate. Will it be okay for me to do the following:
1) install JIRA 6.4 on new VM.
2) migrate files/database data from old VM running 6.3 to new
VM (following migration instructions), and then, finally
3) upgrade "new" JIRA 6.4 installation on new VM to JIRA Software 7.0
I wanted to ask before beginning the migration, thank you
In the end, we actually did a clean install of 7.0 and started with a fresh database. Essentially we started over with no projects, and left the old version behind (there were only a few old projects on it).
I can say that I did test migrating the database from 6.3 on the old host to a clean install of 7.0 on our new host and encountered some datatype issues with Oracle. Unfortunately, I don't remember the details other than it was in fact something preventable (or fixable after the fact). Sorry I can't provide any info on that.
