How to manual backup & restore Jira Linux Edition

How to do a quick backup in easy steps:

1.We will Go to section Jira : System  / Backup 

2.We will Name the file as the date and time as for example 25022021721 ( 25 FEB 2020 17h 21 min )

3.Now the backup will be place on the linux computer /home/jira/jira-home/export ( beware it is not the same location where you will restore from ) 

4.Now we will log in into the server via SSH 

5.Run the following 

$sudo su ( change to superuser max permissions, something like the UAC ) 

$cd linux computer /home/jira/jira-home/export ( go into the export folder )

$ls -l ( check if the backup you have done is there , in this case we can see it last one ) 

$cp "" /home/jira/jira-home/import ( copy the file to Import folder ) 

6. Now the backup should be able to be restored  from the restore menu
