Just wanted to remind everyone that the final release of PostgreSQL 9.6 will be in November 2021. See PostgreSQL Versioning Policy.
Database end of life can be a challenge and upgrading Confluence requires some planning, so we wanted to provide some suggested pathways for upgrading your database. We strongly recommend you keep your database up to date, so that you continue to have access to security fixes.
Here's a summary of the PostgreSQL versions that are supported for each Confluence Data Center and Server version
|Confluence||6.3 to 7.2||7.3 to 7.12||7.12 to 7.13||7.14|
|PostgreSQL 9.6||supported||supported||supported||not supported|
|PostgreSQL 10||not supported||supported||supported||supported|
|PostgreSQL 11||not supported||not supported||supported||supported|
For detailed end of support information, see End of Support Announcements for Confluence.
There are number of different pathways. Here's a few suggested options.
If you're running Confluence 7.2 or earlier you can either:
If you're running Confluence 7.3 or later you can either:
We're working towards adding support for PostgreSQL 12, but this won't be in time for Confluence 7.13 LTS.
We strongly recommend using a staging environment to test your upgrade from end to end, before upgrading in production.
Refer to the following documentation to learn how to upgrade you database:
If you run PostgreSQL 9.6 on an Amazon RDS instance, you should consider planning to upgrade prior to the end of life date, to avoid being automatically upgraded to the latest PostgreSQL version, as happened when PostrgeSQL 9.5 reached end of life. See Manually upgrading the PostgreSQL version of your Amazon RDS database from 9.5 to 9.6 to see what was involved last time.
I hope you find this info helpful, and it helps you plan your next steps.
