Confluence System Requirements Edited


We have already installed JIRA on our server and it is up and running. We want to install Confluence and this is the memory information that is being displayed for free -h


We have 7 users at the moment. Will the memory be enough for installing Confluence.

Hi Arch,

you can find the system requirements here:

Hi Thomas,

Thank you for your reply :) , I am sort of new to server handling, and I read the Server Hardware Requirements Guide. When I SSHd this morning it displayed ~300M as free in -/+ buffers/cache:. Was wondering whether this'd be enough for Confluence.

It is late in Thomas's country so I would like to help.

Confluence 6 and above require at least 2GB of memory (1024 for Confluence and 1024 for Collaborative editing) so I think you will need more on that server before installing Confluence.

Hi Ann,

Thank you for replying. I just wanted to verify this from the Atlassian Community, I'll see what I can do. Thanks again :)
