Testing a Confluence 4.0 upgrade

Is there a clever way to find problems with the upgrade of the content, such as macros/plug-ins that are broken or missing? I searched for "Wiki Markup" and didn't find any hits. I am wondering if there is a better way than me looking at each page for errors?

Hi Kevin,

Have a look at http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Wiki+Markup+to+XHTML+Migration which gives some information on migration/upgrade logs where you can check if there were any problems with the upgrade. Also on that page Dick Visser has provided some SQL statements to identify problem content.

Also, if you suspect that certain macros may have problems there's a useful guide on how to check where certin macros are used on Sarah Maddox's blog at http://ffeathers.wordpress.com/2011/11/04/how-to-search-confluence-for-usage-of-a-macro/

Hope that helps?


Thanks, Andrew
