We are considering moving our Confluence 3.4.5 installation to a different server. Our underlying wiki database is in Oracle on a 3rd server and doesn't need to move ... it just needs to be used by the new wiki server. I was thinking that we could just install Confluence on the new server, and then configure it to point it at the existing database, but are there any pitfalls with this? In particular, will the install or configuration processes do anything to overwrite our existing database (which would be very bad, obviously), and if so, how would we avoid that?
What about the Tomcat installation and configuration (on Windows)? My recollection is that happened automatically as part of the Confluence install process. If so, wouldn't just copying the confluence directory mean that we'd also need to manually work out the details of getting Tomcat running on the new server?
