Clicking on upgrade (Confluence), now i cant connect to my database, Confluence is asking me to set up data base again when i already have an existing database.
The following error(s) occurred:
What will be the best way of knowing or pointing confluence to the right database ?
Should there not be a choice to choose this from the installation wizard ?
No. What you're doing is trying to connect an unconfigured Confluence to a configured one. It cannot know whether you need to go through the setup again or not.

Your Confluence is not configured, as it believes it needs to set up the database, but it's trying to connect to one with data in it. So it's complaining because it doesn't know what you want.
