If we have a WAR/EAR instance of Confluence, can we convert it to a Standalone?
We're currently planning on upgrading from 2.6.0 to the latest version. Is it possible, when migrating to a new server to install the standalone version of Confluence and import the data from the WAR version (to create the clone). If it's not possible at that stage, can we change it as we perform the upgrade (either to the interim 2.7.4 version or the final version?)
Yes. The exports, and even the database are independent of the distribution. I regularly rebuild our dev/test systems from Production. Production is a WAR, the dev/test systems are mostly Standalone, although there is one which is WAR for doing the final "as live" testing on new stuff.
I'm pretty sure you can go directly from WAR-2.6.0 to Standalone-2.7.4 without having to worry about it at all. (I'm less certain about going 2.6 to 3.5, but that's still about the versions of Confluence, nothing to do with the WAR/Standalone change)
