Restoring data

This process is typically conducted towards the end of migrating Jira applications to another server or splitting Jira applications across multiple servers.

If you wish restore a single project from your backup into an existing Jira instance, refer to these instructions on restoring a project from backup instead.

Restoring Jira from backup is a three stage process:

  1. (Optional) Disable email sending/receiving
  2. Restore data to the database
    Option 1Restoring information from a native backup
    Option 2: Restoring data from XML to the database
  3. Restore the attachments to the attachments directory (if attachments were backed up). 
    If you've performed native backup, you also need to copy/restore the /data folder manually to your new server.
