Hi there,

I believe this documentation will help you out on this migration:

thank you. show you that my comment

Hey Domingo,

A few questions in here:

  • What is your Confluence Version.
  • What is the Confluence Home directory disk space size?
  • Around how many users add content into your wiki (does not need to be a accurate number).
  • Did you already tried to generate a xml export of your site and importing into a fresh installation on the same version?

Based on the answers for above questions we will be able to think on a strategy for you to achieve what you want.

Hope it helps.

Thanks and Regards,

Hello. Deividi. Thank you for your answer and sorry because I am too late. Confluence Version. -> 5.6.5 Confluence Home directory disk space size -> 819G my wiki users count is -> 9 users. I get to "generate a xml export". I am ready.

If you generated the xml back what error you get when you start a fresh installation and try to import during the installation process?

Thank you, Deividi. When you before that answer to me, I don't know "generate a xml export". Now I will try import. I will comment after import.

Sure buddy, make sure to follow below guide to setup a fresh Confluence on the same version you have before importing the xml file: The above guide explains what you need to change to hook up a confluence into a MySQL database.

Thank you for your answer. Benito.
