Hi Jovan


i hope that you have a test environment available to test the upgrade procedure itself.

The most important thing before you start the upgrade is to have backups of your filesystems and the database used by confluence.

Afterwards i would check on the installed apps, if they need to get updated or if there are any incompatible ones that should get deactivated.


The upgrade itself is best done by using the installer.


If you had any changes to your configuration (e.g. ssl config of the tomcat connector, you might need to redo these changes after the installation)


All the best
