Create a staging setup at the same versions as your production server.

Import your .zexp's here, then upgrade that installation, or create a
data.fs that you can move to the new installation.

A .zexp import may not (never does, for me) import where
zope/plone/products versions do not match - the upgrade is your next
issue, but first you need to get past (or work around) the import problem.
