Confluence upgrade

Hello support,

We are using Confluence 5.6.6 and thinking of upgrade to newest version. I am wondering if you have any document for us to refer to regarding the upgrade procedure/steps? How about the app data? should it be backed up somewhere first? Thanks.

You should find all you need at but pay careful attention to the need to review each version upgrade.

You should of course rehearse this in a development environment before proceeding with your live environment and always take a backup (if not several!)


Hope this helps
