I am testing a restore from jira and it's mysql databases on a new server. Therefore i've made an sqldump and a tarball from the jira /data directory (with attachements and avatars).
On the new system with latest jira and mysql installed and running I imported the sql databases with common mysql commands. After that i copied the /data dir to the new machine and changed the rights for jira user.
After jira restart everything works, projects an Avatars/Attachements are there. BUT: most of the issues are gone (80% in one project and 100% in 3 other projects)! why does this happen? Are all data and settings stored in the database or do i have to backup jira-HOME either?
This seems very unique case you have there and it might take a while to really diagnose whether what is causing this, I would like recommend you to migrate using the following steps to avoid similar problem
It is a new setup, and in my opinion, it is better to perform the upgrade in a problem free method rather than spending too much time on troubleshooting.
Hope this gives an idea to you, cheers :)
