we are about to migrate Confluence to another server. The two servers have different versions (see below). Should we expect some difficulties with importing a Confluence backup which was exported from an older version? Should we update Confluence on the old server first? What would be your migration strategy in this case?
Confluence version old server: 5.8.14
Confluence version new server: 6.1.2

If you just want to export and import spaces, you can check, if it is possible to import the older space. This is described here:
