I have a confluence ear/war installation (very old version) and now I want to upgrade to newer version.
I am upgrading it first to 3.5.17 (on linux)
1. I did not see any reason why it should be ear/war anymore so using 3.5.17 standalone for upgrade. (Is this ok?)
2. Installed 3.5.17 outofbox worked just fine.
3. Pointed to copy of old confluence home directory in confluence-init.properties, changed database settings, ldap settings etc and restarted
Got an error: java.sql.SQLException: ORA-01408: such column list already indexed

Got message upgrade failed. Please consult system logs for details. Now system logs had nothing except what I pasted. atlassian-confluence.log file is not created. Pasted catalina.out earlier.
Will the upgrade proceed with older version license and then when I start it should ask for newer license right. should I just edit confluence.cfg.properties and do something there?
I have some plugins, should I jsut upgrade and then update plugins through upm or is there some other way...
Is my database messedup now, should I take a fresh copy of database and confluence home?
I do not know what went wrong?
Your help in answering is appreciated.
ok stopped and restarted and I can get into confluence 3.5.17
I think what happend is the process of conversion of database was going on when I accessed confluence, the error message was just bizzare.
Now it says it cannot access plugin exchange...
Had to change base url and it worked.
(Ok I am not spamming, I think that this may be useful someone some time)
