Migrating Confluence Between Servers (Centos to Redhat)

Hi Team,

We have requirement of migrating Confluence (Version 5.8.19) server (cent OS) to new server (Redhat OS), then we will upgrade it to Latest 6.X version.

ENV details:

We have installed Confluence V5.8.18 with Oracle DB on single box and we need to split the same to individual Redhat box and then upgrade it latest version.

Please help me on the same. Good if we have any videos for the same

I'm not sure that your description is clear on what you are doing.

The first paragraph makes sense - you want to move a Confluence from one server to another (see ), and later upgrade it as a second step.

But then you say something about installing on a single box and splitting it.  This does not appear to have anything to do with moving from one server to another.  Could you explain?

Hi Nic Brough,

Thanks for the support.

In current ENV we have installed Confluence V 5.8.18, configured with Oracle DB 11G on CentOS 6.x.

As the current ENV are getting de-commissioned, we need to migrate the same to new box (with Redhat 6.X installed). 

We have two NEW Linux box, one for Confluence and other for Oracle DB.

For Confluence: I have reffered link and it was not very clear.


Migration steps: As per link

1: If the operating systems on both servers are the same, then the home and install folders can be copied straight into an identical external database and user management setup.

On the original server, create zips of the Confluence install and home directories

Can i know which folders needs to copied to new server.

Do we need install the Confluence on new server and copy.

For Oracle DB: Will export (from Production server )and import the same (New server).
