How to backup / restore a single plugin?

Is it possible to backup and restore a single plugin? If I install a newer version of an existing plugin I want to do so for the case the newer version doesn't work.

Hi Michiel, no you don't need to use JIRA. Do your plugins install/uninstall via Confluence Admin -> Plugins? If so just uninstall the newer version of the plugin and then install the old version. Have a look at http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Removing+Malfunctioning+Plugins for where plugins might be located, most third party plugins are stored in the database. Hope that helps, Andrew.

Hi Michiel,

You can manually install the older version of plugin by putting the plugin jar file into the <JIRA_HOME>/plugins/installed-plugins directory.

Sincerely,

Chai Ying

Hi Chai Ying,

Currently I don't use Jira. Do I need to do so?
There is a directory "bundled-plugins", but this seems to be only for system plugins. I don't see my own plugins.

Take a look into the folder <Conf-Installation-directory>\temp\

I found my plugins there.
