Migrating from confluence server version 5.8 to confluence cloud Edited

Hi ,

How should i migrate data from confluence server running in older version 5.8 to confluence cloud, I tried to upgrade 5.8 to later version unfortunately it was not successful I export ed spaces in xml files from confluence in server and imported in confluence cloud i got this messaage " We can't import your file because it's from an old server version. Please upgrade to Confluence server 5.10 or later, and then use the Cloud Migration Assistant for Confluence to migrate your spaces."

Confluence offer  Cloud Migration Assistant for Confluence but unfortunately it only works on version 5.10 to 6.12.
