both ways are good, but for me i will go for the inplacedatabas upgrade (save time) cause the export import will take more time if your jira instance is big

Hi,

First method is a more scalable than the second one and it is easier to troubleshoot as well. So we highly recommend you to use the database upgrade instead of the second method.
