Confluence Server is displaying the the installation page after existing container restart Edited

Hi community,
I have a problem after my Confluence Server upgrade from v6.10.0 to v6.15.7.

The update process was ok but the problem is when I restart the Docker stack which contains the running Confluence Server v6.15.7 server then the same server is always showing me the installation page again an again.
I have noted that confluence.cfg.xml file is always updated after any restart.

Docker image:


Docker stack file:



Confluence confluence.cfg.xml file:

Your help on this will be very appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

Hi joseluisq,


 There was an issue in our Confluence image, just for a day or so, where it would overwrite the existing copy of confluence.cfg.xml on every container restart (rather than only on first time start, when no file yet exists). This has since been fixed, so if you're running into this issue please pull the latest version of whichever image tag you were using and you should be all set. Let me know if you get stuck.



@Dave_Chevell I was solved pulling the latest image version v6.15.9 again.

You need keep $CONFLUENCE_HOME as mapped volume so 'confluence.cfg.xml' doesn't update every time you restart.

Thanks for your reply,
In the screenshot if you see $CONFLUENCE_HOME setup is already done:

Docker stack file

  - /var/confluence-data/app:/var/atlassian/application-data/confluence

You need to change settings in `conflunce.cfg.xml`

What kind of configurations should I need to do?
I have shared my confluence.cfg.xml in the description above.
