Best Way to migrate a 25 instance using EmbeddedSQL

I installed 5.6.1 and only now I was informed that I was using embedded SQL due to a bug on 5.6.1 Installer. I want to migrate to a MSSQL database.


Which would be the best procedure?

Thanks in advice.

Hey Mitch,

Follow the documentation available at

  1. Backup existing database by manually creating an XML backup
  2. Setup a new instance of Confluence and update the dbconfig in confluence home directory
  3. Import existing backup




How I did not found that before :p... Thanks Bhushan, that worked as a charm. tks, Mitch
