our team is planning to move Database from Oracle to Postgresssql for confluence 4.3.6.
I would like to know what are challenge's we face while moving please share experience.
I want to know what are plugin level change's we need to trace.
please suggest your thought.
Export data as XML and import it back after pointing to new DB, you should be fine. Regarding plugins, it depends on implementation but most of them should be using internal database or active object which are taken care during export/import. Neverthless, I suggest a test migration.
Not a problem :).
As Jobin said, the best way is to set up a test Instance.
Export data as XML and then after you set up a new confluence installation in a test Env (same version as Prod) with Postegres DB, just Import the XML.
Since all the plugin's you upload (including your Custom PlugIns) on Confluence are saved on the PLUGIN DATA table at the DB, after the import on the test instance they will be there for you to test.
Thanks and Regards,
