That's not just a "migration between servers", you're doing a massive upgrade as well. Moving from one database to another is generally a doddle if the databases are the same (eg mysqldump > output.dmp, then myslql < output.dmp to load it on another server, then hack the dbconfig file to point at the new one). Your upgrade is really very NOT that simple.

The route for this is wrong. You should NOT go from Confluence 3.5 to anything higher than 5.0.

So, in short, read the full set of "how to upgrade Confluence" documents.

Upgrade from 3.5 to 5.5 using the most appropriate route

Upgrade from 5.0 to 5.5 using the recommended process.
