Installing Confluence 4.1 and MS SQL 2008 R2


I am new to both confluence and SQL. I was wondering if there was a step-by-syep guide to configure Confluence 4.1 and MS SQL 2008 R2.

Thank you

Is this good enough?

Is SQL Server 2008 very different compared to SQL Server 2005?

Hi Liby,

The generic instructions for configuring Confluence with an external database are available at and there are specific instructions for MS SQL at There is also a Knowledge Base article for specific issues with MS SQL at

The guides at the links above do not mention specific versions of MS SQL, but Confluence supports MS SQL 2005 and above, including 2008 R2, so they should cover the information you need.

Hope that helps,
