Confluence 5.9 on SQL Server 2008?

Hi, states 5.9 is not compatible / not tested with SQL Server 2008. I appreciate that we certainly should update SQL Server, but is there a way it can work? 


I searched ~ "\"sql server 2008\"" and project = CONF order by createdDate desc but saw no logic as to why it's been dropped.

Hey Martin,

Currently, this SQL Server version is not supported as you just noticed, however, you can install a staging environment and monitor it. 

You shouldn't have problems with it, and also, let me give an example right now:

I installed Confluence 5.9.1 in PostGreSQL 8.4 without major problems, and as you can check in that documentation, this version doesn't support postgresql 8.4, but if you face any kind of problems with your database and Confluence, we'll ask you to upgrade the database to a supported one so we could further help you.

Hope this will help you, buddy.

Thanks Guilherme!

Generally if a DB vendor doesn't support a version of their DB, then other companies won't support that version for their own products such as Confluence
