Create local copy of Confluence


My customer wants to use a local copy of confluence when out on travel.

This is only for read purposes.

Can this be done in an easy way?

Best regards

Mattias Cederlund

Edit: He want's to do it both on PC and Mac.

isn't it easier to establish a VPN-Connection to allow remote-access?

I haven't seen an "offline" copy, like it is available for Sharepoint.

Here are some articles:

Hi Oliver and thanks for your reply!

The customer travels a lot, and it is for use mainly in airplanes, why vpn won't work.

Is it possible to just create a local copy of the db? Would that work?

Hi Matthias,

i could think of using an externel database with replication. So using a working DB an a client-DB as a replic of the original one on the laptop. Then you have to store attachments etc. in the database to avoid replication of files. You should have the same filestructure on both sides. Also you have to install same plugins.

And don't forget the license issue.

That might work but I'm not sure of any impact
