how to migrate plugins from crashed server to new server

I am trying to re-install JIRA from a crashed server ie. we cant run this JIRA, but we have access to the hard disk.

So far we have:

1. recovered database form MySQL folder (ok)
2. installed a clean JIRA and connected (ok)
3. copies data folder over the top to get attachments (ok)

We have everything working except plugins.
Is there an easy way to recover plugins, or do we need to reinstall and config them all?

Hi Shayne,

You can try backup the folder plugins from JIRA Home Directory. Not necessary to reinstall them because when you replace the plugin into new plugins folder, when restart JIRA it will automatically installed.
