Major Revision Upgrade in place?

Can you do major upgrades in place, specifically 4.05 to 5.5.2 or do you need to install a new instance and migrate the data? Any pointers to documentation is appreciated.

Hey Jeff,
If we're running Confluence 4.0.5, we need to follow an upgrade path which is 4.0.5 > 5.0.3 > 5.5.2. This is a recommended path, that we were able to developed. You can find more information here as well:

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Upgrading+from+Confluence+3.5+to+5.1+-+Simplified+Guide?src=search#UpgradingfromConfluence3.5to5.1-SimplifiedGuide-UpgradingConfluence
There should give you the steps to it.

Actually you don't need to migrate anything. However we do recommend that you have a test environment to apply the upgrade first then to prod.

Cheers,
WZ
