For migrating:

For upgrading:

Be sure to select the doc version at the top for the version you are working with.

Thanks, what about more granular exports? Say for example one space from an older version of Confluence?

This helps with exports; http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Exporting+Confluence+Pages+and+Spaces+to+XML This helps with imports; http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Restoring+a+Space However it seems an upgrade is required if you wish to export and import in higher version

Alternatively, you can change the version of space backup in order to import a space backup from an earlier version to a later version of Confluence e.g. importing a space backup from 2.8 to 3.5.13. However this is not recommended for Confluence 4.0 and later as the content type has changed and saved in xhtml.

We're currently preparing to migrate spaces from one instance of Confluence to another (same version, basically merging the two).

The instance that is going away was built when we were first learning Confluence, and due to the nature of work, things change over time.  Space Keys on the older instance could use some updating.

Since we're basically exporting the spaces to a file that is then imported into the new instance, I'm wondering if anyone has attempted to change space keys on the export file before importing it into the new instance.

It 'sounds' easy enough, just wondering if anyone has tried it and ran into any problems/difficulties/gotchas.
