We are currently on Confluence 3.4.5 and want to upgrade to 5.4.2. As stated in the upgrade guide we should skip the incremental step of upgrading to major version 4 in between and go directly to version 5.x.x. According to this we are supposed to upgrade manually because we are on a version pre-3.5.x but to what version should we update manually to? Be reading various threads like this it seems like we should manually update from 3.4.5 -> 3.5.17 first.
Have I understood this correctly?
3.4.5 Manually -> 3.5.17 -> 5.0.3 -> 5.4.2
Any other suggestions?
Thank you very much!
Not sure what you mean by "manually", but yes, it's very strongly recommended that you go 3.5 before you attempt the jump to a later release. A lot changes between 3.4 and 3.5, and it's a nightmare to go from 3.4 to 4.0, let alone higher!
Hi, thank you for your reply.
It is stated like this in the manual:
So there is a "manually upgrade" process to use for versions earlier than 3.4.x > 3.5 if I understand it correctly.
