Restore Confluence

2 months ago I backuped confluence and jira and downloaded the 2 zip files.

I created a new account and try to restore the previous backup.

Restoring Jira went well, however I cannot restore Confluence (https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONF52/Restoring+a+Site).

In the confluence admin, there is no "backup and restore", only import spaces which gives the error "Only Confluence space exports can be imported.".

How can I restore confluence?

Did you try logging in via the admin account you created when installing confluence? You said you created a new account. This new account might not have the confluence system admin previliges and hence you probably arent able to view the "backup and restore" option.

Are you using the same version of Confluence?

To check which version the back-up was made with, open it and read the ".properties" file at the root.

Wait a minute, are you using Confluence OnDemand? Import is not available on OnDemand, there's a tipbox no the page you've linked.
