Migrating Confluence got error : Table confluence.BANDANA doesn't exist'

Hi everyone

after I migrated confluence from windows server to new ubuntu server, I got error. I restored db from old server to new one. I also try to fix by the link https://confluence.atlassian.com/confkb/upgrade-fails-java-sql-sqlexception-table-confluence-bandana-doesn-t-exist-due-to-case-sensitivity-123044020.html but no luck.

In windows server: Confluence version 5.10.2

In Ubuntu Server: Confluence version 5.10.8

This is probably because you need to import it on the same version of confluence as you used. Install confluence 5.10.2 on linux, import the XML, then upgrade it should work fine.


Thanks @Jonas Andersson, I will try with confluence 5.10.2 on linux. Due to we have a large data, so can not import by XML, I just import DB, copy home directory from win server to linux server. 

Hi @Jonas Andersson

as you advise, I installed another Confluence server with same version to import, then I got another problem. I also tried some solutions to fix it like the link https://confluence.atlassian.com/confkb/confluence-generates-confluence-is-vacant-error-on-install-779164449.html and fix incorrect database collation, but no luck, the problem still be there.
