Is it possible to import and export from confluence

Currently we are running confluence on a server external.
But the company would like to run confluence on a server internal.

Is it possible to export the users, template and database form external to the confluence server internal?
And if its possible, can you explain how it works?

that's creat but how do i get these files if they are on the online server from atlassian?

This is the problem: Download of the backup to a custom location is currently disabled for security reasons. See the documentation for instructions on how to change this.

I've read the information, but i can't acces these files.

Sorry I was not aware that you are running an ondemand instance. For acquiring your XML backup, please open a ticket for the ondemand team at and they will provide you the steps and data required for you to migrate the instance to your server.
