The instructions in Dragon Slaying Stage 3 Step 2 say that I should use Confluence 3.5.7 (released June 22, 2011). The latest available Confluence 3.5 version is 3.5.13 (released September 1, 2011). Should I stick to 3.5.7 or should I use 3.5.13, which I guess only adds stability?
What error did you get with creating tables? When the install falls over at table creation it's normally due to one of:
I didn't keep the error message's details but it just said that it can't find the tables inside. Maybe it though that it managed to create them in a previous run (which is marked in a local text file).
All of these were verified with psql.
I dropped and re-created the database but it didn't help.
I eventually dug up and installed JDK 1.6 (6?) instead of 7 and it started working (1.6 takes a little bit of digging in order to find on Oracle's web site).
I was later told that I should actually use 1.6 for everything since this is what all Atlassian products require.
The instructions in http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/ATLAS/Dragons+Stage+1+-+Install+JIRA#DragonsStage1-InstallJIRA-Step1InstallJava clearly say "Oracle JDK 1.6 or higher", which I interpreted to include JDK 7, I was now told that it was supposed to mean "1.6.x for any x".
