We currently have Confluence on version 5.10.7 but will be upgrading to the latest version 6.3.
Has anybody come across any issues when doing this upgrade or do I need to follow the path below for upgrading to the new version:
5.10.7 > 6.0 > 6.1> 6.2> 6.3
I haven't performed the direct upgrade yet but I don't believe there's a problem with it. Make sure you back things up! :)
Collaborative Editing is a new feature in v6 so you'll have to completely rework your Proxy to get the editing working again.
You only need to do iterative updates if directed. Normally it's fine to jump.
The big deal with the Collaborative Editing feature is that there is a second Jetty Webserver that is running the service. Atlassian has tried to make this sort of invisible, but just realize there's another process trying to speak over websockets to clients. You need to account for that when proxying as it's no longer as simple as setting up a simple ProxyPass.
