Mirroring Confluence 4.0 instance for high availability?

Is there any documentation on mirroring Confluence instances? I can't find anything about it.

It would probably be fine if the mirrors were read-only.

Confluence doesn't have any mirroring functionality built-in to the product. We do offer a "Clustered" licence for Confluence, but this is designed to improve scalability, and has no features for high-availability.

One option you could investigate is using the Confluence AutoExport plugin - which can be configured to regularly export Confluence content to static HTML files that can then be served up by another static HTTP server as a backup or high-throughput mirror.

AutoExport hasn't been updated since 3.4.9. Should I look elsewhere for a solution for 4.0?

Ooh, it hasn't? Hmm... we should have a 4.0 version available (or available soon). Let me check and get back to you :-)

There's a 4.0-compatible version of the Auto-Export plugin in the works. We want to include fixes for AUTOEXP-4 and AUTOEXP-12 first, before we release it.

Thanks, I'll check that out as soon as it's available.
