I am new here and doing what I am about to ask for the first time so bare with me and my questions :)
We are currently running Confluence v6.13 with a local MySQL database. We are trying to migrate our MySQL database to PostgreSQL database.
So far we have done a migration of the MySQL data to a separate/external PostgreSQL database using pgloader. We are separating the app and db to be on their own separate servers.
I have read the Atlassian documentation for database migration: https://confluence.atlassian.com/conf613/migrating-to-another-database-964961318.html
I have some questions which I am unsure about:
For question #1, I don't think it will be that straightforward. You'd need to change the database's driver_class, hibernate.dialect, among others that will be different from each database type. That answers question #2, yes, it's meant for same database type migration.
For Q#3, If you point to the db that already have the migrated data during the setup wizard, it'll complain that the database is not empty, and prompt you to overwrite the data anyway. You're right, you'd have to point it to an empty database in postgreSQL first, as mentioned in your point #3. This will prompt confluence to generate the correct confluence.cfg.xml parameters needed for pgsql.
Hi Community! We're thrilled to share that Team Calendars for Confluence is now a built-in feature for Confluence Data Center releases 7.11 and beyond. A long time favorite, Team Cale...
