Hi Robert,

The XML backup can be utilized but is often memory intensive. You will have more success with the XML backup/restore option if you allot more memory to the JVM. Instructions on altering the memory settings can be found here:

If you run into any errors, please feel free to contact support by creating a support request at http://support.atlassian.com

Hi,

I believe this guide will help you: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Migrating+Confluence+Between+Servers

Cheers,

thanks, I'll give it a try.

Note, DONT do the XML backup. Follow the advice in most sections of that page and do a manual database backup/restore.
