Hello Community !
I want to Upgrade/Install from Confluence 5.6.1 running under Win7 and the embedded HSQL to a Win 2008 Srv with MSSQL database. We have a 10 user license and about 400 pages with 28MB attachments. It is a small installation yet. So, should I
Do I need a developer license on the new Srv during the swap ? Or is there any other easier way ?
Thank you for your help !!
I do recommend to switch first to a supported database because using HSQL DB in production is not advised. Since the instance is small, try to use the XML backup to import into the 2008 server and MSSQL DB using the exact same version as the production.
After the migration has been done, proceed with the upgrade. Be careful of this bug in 5.7 when using jdbc MSSQL Database. You need to switch to datasource to perform the upgrade and change back to jdbc afterwards.
You can use the evaluation license to create the staging instance. After you finish the migration, you can set the 10 user license in the new server. Just change the server ID in my.atlassian.com to reflect the new ID of the new server.
I hope this helps!
Hi Rodrigo, meanwhile the actual Confluence Version is 5.8.4, and we found no time to do the upgrade, are your recommentations still up -to-date ? Is the jdbc bug gone with the new release ? Next week we will give it a try to perform the upgrade to the SQL driven Server Installation of Confluence. Hope to read you ...
switch to from jdbc to datasource.
