Confluence from external to interal


I have confluence hosted at my IT partner and i am moving the servers home to my own DC.

I have a Confluence application server and a Database server.

When i move the application server where do i change the IP to the database on that server?

They are all running Centos.

Hi @Martin Hansen ,

welcome to the Atlassian community!

As said by @Ed Gaile _Atlanta_ GA_ , you could change confluence.cfg.xml file. For more information take a look to the following article

Hope this helps,


Just to be clear,  i just cloned the application server and the database server. 

IT is the same servers just the op that has changed. 

Is that the same guide?

I have changed the ip if the mysql in the config file.

And still cant get the webpages to connect to the database.



Servers just got New ip address that is it :)
