I am trying to upgrade from confluence 3.0.2 to 4.2.6.
So first upgrading to 3.5.17 and then to 4.2.6
Per my understanding:
Please let me know.
1 and 2 are related. The general upgrade procedure is to point the new confluence installation and your existing data directory and existing database. If you are pointing at your existing data directory correctly then its confluence.cfg.xml will also point at the old database so it should all get auto upgraded. (obviously backup first or as you are doing, do this on a copy)
So it sounds like for some reason it is still finding your old confluence.home. Now that could be the case if it is definied as an environmental variable possibly, which would override your setting in confluence-init.properties. So check that first.
3. If this is a test system then you'll mainly be missing attachments if you do that, which might be ok for what you are doing but then you really aren't testing the full upgrade ;)
