We have a JIRA production installation (version 4.0.1) running on linux on a dedicated server running tomcat (6.0.18).
For the moment our Confluence instance is running on the same tomcat.
We want to follow your new requirements and separate our confluence and jira installation.
During this process, we have to upgrade JIRA from 4.0.1 to 5.1.8.
The confluence upgrade will be done later.
What's the safest and fastest procedure tu upgrade this instance as the documentation lists several options.
Do we have to go through an other installation (4.3, 4.4?) or can we proceed the upgrade directly?
Here is what I suggest you:
After that, you will have your JIRA 5.1.8 working like a charm.
Hope that helps.
