I need to migrate confluence from production to dev serveron linux. Can anyone provide me the steps. Here, we are using the confluence version is 5.10.8 on both production and dev.
Dear @somanath kondeti,
if I understood you right, you would like to migrate the data of prod to dev. Somehow to make a copy.
All you need is the XML dump and the attachments (and some other things).
Best you do following:
Hello @somanath kondeti,
So you are creating staging environment you need to follow these steps
1- Replicate your environment
Your staging environment should closely replicate your real-live environment (production), including any reverse proxies, SSL configuration, or load balancer (for Data Center).
You may decide to use a different physical server or a virtualized solution. The main thing is to make sure it is an appropriate replica of your production environment.
This is for confluence server
2- Replicate your database
To replicate your database:
3- Replicate Confluence
Resource name="jdbc/confluence" auth="Container" type="javax.sql.DataSource"
validationQuery="select 1" />
4- Start Confluence with the following System Properties to make sure your staging site does not send notifications to real users.
5- Head to http://localhost:<port> and log in to Confluence on your staging server.
Go to > General Configuration and change the base URL of your staging site (for example mysite.staging.com)
Go to > General Configuration > License Details and apply your development license.
Go to > General Configuration > System Information and check that Confluence is correctly pointing to your staging database and staging home directory.
Hope this helps.
Hello, I have a similar question as the original poster, I'm creating a staging environment of a production environment on a different physical server and am unable to make a copy of the home directory to the new server.
I've changed permissions to make it possible but there are still files I can't copy.
What can I do?
