I think this is a bug. I've already opened an issue. I've installed Confluence 4.0 and tried to import a backup from Confluene 3.5 during installation. I use a Postgres database. The installation fails with an exception in the log files.
Caused by: org.postgresql.util.PSQLException: ERROR: duplicate key value violates unique constraint "cp_unique_user" at org.postgresql.core.v3.QueryExecutorImpl.receiveErrorResponse(QueryExecutorImpl.java:2102) at org.postgresql.core.v3.QueryExecutorImpl.processResults(QueryExecutorImpl.java:1835) at org.postgresql.core.v3.QueryExecutorImpl.execute(QueryExecutorImpl.java:257) at org.postgresql.jdbc2.AbstractJdbc2Statement.execute(AbstractJdbc2Statement.java:500) at org.postgresql.jdbc2.AbstractJdbc2Statement.executeWithFlags(AbstractJdbc2Statement.java:388) at org.postgresql.jdbc2.AbstractJdbc2Statement.executeUpdate(AbstractJdbc2Statement.java:334) at org.apache.tomcat.dbcp.dbcp.DelegatingPreparedStatement.executeUpdate(DelegatingPreparedStatement.java:105) at org.apache.tomcat.dbcp.dbcp.DelegatingPreparedStatement.executeUpdate(DelegatingPreparedStatement.java:105) at net.sf.hibernate.impl.NonBatchingBatcher.addToBatch(NonBatchingBatcher.java:22) at net.sf.hibernate.persister.EntityPersister.insert(EntityPersister.java:462) ... 51 more
You're receiving this error because this kind of import does not work. If you want to import a backup from your 3.5 version you'll have to do this using a 3.5 version, in other words it's only possible to import a backup into the same version, for example:
* Backup from a 3.5 version > only can be imported into another 3.5 version
If you want to upgrade your Confluence, then you need to follow some steps to achieve this goal, the first one that we recommend it is to create a test environment to test the upgrade in a first moment and avoid problems in the production environment (best practice) based on this procedure:
And so follow these steps to upgrade:
Hope this helps.
