I am at the starting data selection screen.

My old bamboo was running just fine I am ugrading so that we can use LDAP.

wondering the correct Format to enter the file path in?     Is this to the actual database file?  raw?   how do you want the data if that is not correct.

Thanks in advance

Upgrading Bamboo should not have the Installation Setup. It should detect the old database and Bamboo Home and proceed with the upgrade.

Make sure that the following steps are performed:

  1. Configure the new Bamboo to use the old Bamboo Home at <newBambooInstallation>/atlassian-bamboo/WEB-INF/classes/ (the new Bamboo will read the database setting inside the Bamboo Home and proceed with the upgrade)
  2. Copy over the extra settings (if any) from the following old Bamboo files
    • <oldBambooInstallation>/bin/ or setenv.bat
    • <oldBambooInstallation>/conf/server.xml
    • <oldBambooInstallation>/conf/web.xml
  3. Start the new Bamboo

I did this, yet I still got the prompt for enter the file path to the existing data?????

Bamboo Home is the directory where the file bamboo.cfg.xml is located. 

Is that directory configured in the file

Does the file bamboo.cfg.xml in the old Bamboo Home have the same content as the one in the new Bamboo Home?

If not, then the new Bamboo Home generated the file when it is started last time.

You will have to delete the entire new Bamboo Home and then copy over the old Bamboo Home content to the new Bamboo Home before starting the new Bamboo.

actually checked a couple o tables on the New database it is working


no, the above is not true


Yes, the old bamboo home is what is in that file.  Just the path.


Old bamboo= d:\bamboo-home

New bamboo = c:\bamboo-home514
