How to use confluence with load balancing ?

Hello

I want to use latest confluence with two front end servers and single mysql database.

I did this setup on my test environment but i got error message as i can not use single database server for multiple confluence.

Is there any way to do this setup ? 

Is there any documentation written for confluence with F5 load balancer ?

Hello,

The load balancer is only available for Data Center editions of Confluence, you can not use it for Standalone Server. To use DC features and version you need a DC license

You can read more about it in Load balancer configuration options guide.

OK . Thanks

So confluence with data center i can use 2 frond end nodes (In future i can add more) and single back end as Mysql.

Currently i am using confluence 5.8.8 on standalone server. Can i move to Data center option with same license ? or I have to purchase new license.

Hello,

You would need to purchase DC license to be able to use DC version, the installation file is the same, whether you can or can't use DC features is determined and detected based on license key. You can read more about it in Moving to Confluence Data Center guide.
Your assumption is correct, you can use multiple Nodes connecting to a single DB in a cluster and add more in the future.
Keep in mind that Confluence 5.8.8 has reached End of Life. So we would recommend upgrading to Confluence 6.*.

Hello,

Can i convert my existing standalone license in to DC license ?

How can i import my old data in to new DC ? 

Hello,

You would have to upgrade a standalone license into DC license. You can engage our sales from here and they will be able to assist you with your licensing needs.

Once you have a new DC license key you would have to apply it to your existing Confluence installation, from General configuration > Licensing, once license key is applied, DC features are unlocked and can be used, from General configuration > Clustering.

Installation file for standalone and DC version is the same, license key is what unlocks the features. So no need to import any data, you can change your production directly.

Igor
