Updating from the v.4.3.4 of JIRA to the latest version of JIRA

What's the latest version of JIRA?

Which way would you prefer ? By uninstalling the old version and installing the latest version of JIRA or by just upgrading to the latest version of JIRA. I want to prevent the data loss and ı want to upgrade without error.

My system is mysql database and windows 2003 server.

5.06. See the notes for detailed instructions:


Also see all the release notes for individual releases to understand the changes.


You just need to follow the upgrade guide. Just make sure you make all the backups, I have run into unknnown file/directory locking issues where I needed to restore and try again at a later date on our windows 2003 server.

Also make sure you read the all the upgrade release notes to see if there will be any issues.

Thanks for answers.

If I uninstall whole v.4.3.4 and connect to data base after install v.5.0.6, is it right ?

Did you read the above notes? Unless you change the server or DB or indexs/attachments path, upgrade utility can be used for 4.3+ to 5.0.
