Migrating from confluence stand alone to OnDemand

I'm attempting to migrate my Conf install to ondemand, and am being told that I can't import due to a version mismatch.

I've followed the migration steps pretty carefully:

1) Exported by Conf 3.5 data as XML (Debian)

2) Downloaded and installed Confluence 5.0-OD-28 (Win)

3) Ran the windows installer to setup the local OD instance

4) Used the import spaces function under the Confluence Admin section of my Conf OD account.

The version of Conf running on ondemand is not displayed anywhere in the app (?) so I've no idea of the build level.

The version that's available for download in (5.0-OD-28) is old, sorry about that! We should have this page updated soon.

Meanwhile, since Confluence 5.0 final was released to OnDemand, you should be able to use the release that's on the normal Confluence download page: (i.e. 5.0).

Thanks for your answer Michael.

Curious that the OD version is not displayed like other Confluence installs.

Normally the OD version has extra stuff in it that will be coming in the next major (self-hosted) release. In this case, a major release had just gone out to OnDemand and self-hosted at the same time, so there was nothing extra in OnDemand and therefore no need for an explicit 'OD' release.

Obviously we still want to make sure that whatever version is downloaded from that page will work for its intended purpose, so we'll be putting something up there later today.
