How to obtain page chainges from database.

I need to find all page versions, its content and changes in page from version to version.

Can be done via API, but couldn't find a way to do it via database using SQL

You would need to replicate all the code that goes into displaying the differences in the UI and the REST API output.

Confluence does not store differences, it generates them when you ask for them.  If you were to look in the database, you'd find a string of pages linked together as the history, not a set of changes.

It's better not to bother looking at the database, it's really not designed for reporting and often doesn't even store stuff you see on-screen.

Stick to extracting it with the REST API or plugin API, it's a lot less painful than SQL.
