Hi @Ahmet A 

Although the confluence doc says that you can directly perform the upgrade from 5.0 to 7.x, I would suggest otherwise based on my experience. Since there are significant changes done between version 5 to version 7 like Collaborative editing feature, analytics etc, many new tables and constraints were introduced from confluence version 6.x onwards. Mostly I have seen failures due to new database tables and constraints.

I will suggest you follow the upgrade path 5.x-->6.x-->7.x. Also please be sure to take into account supported platforms as suggested by Dave above.

Thanks,

Aamir

Hi @AAMIR ANSARI Thanks for your help. First, I upgraded to version 6.5.3. Do you mind if I upgrade to 7.19.1(LTS) afterwards? Is there any difference between LTS versions and others?

Hi, @Ahmet A Glad to hear that you have upgraded to version 6.5.3. Most of the issues are encountered during the upgrade from version 5 to version 6. Since you have passed this hurdle, you can now directly upgrade to 7.19.1.

Regarding LTS versions, you can read the details below, but in a crux, in LTS versions, you  can backport all other security bug fixes to Long Term Support releases throughout its standard 2-year support window

Hi @Ahmet A 

From version 5.0 to 7.x, you can upgrade directly to the latest version of Confluence 7, but take into account supported platforms. This is of course only possible when you have a valid maintenance license.
