Moving the Database to SQL

Im needing to move the embeded data to SQL.  I noticed in the documentation that once everything is backed up I need to reinstall confluence to a different directory.   Could I use this time to spin up a new server?  Currently Confluence is running on 2012R2, and I was looking to move it to 2019.   Would this be an acceptable time to move the install to a new server while upgrading the database?

1- Create Export Backup of your current Instance. Be sure that you checked include attachments before hit the Export button.


2- Install new confluence instance on 2019 Server and connect it to SQL(MSSQL or MySQL?)

3- Transfer backup files from the old server to the new server.

4- Restore data using one of the following methods:


5- Check all of your configurations like Server IP or Base URL, Application links, Installed Addons and connection to LDAP, etc.
