Upgrade Confluence from 5.3 to latest version.

Hello Team,

Greeting for the Day!

I am looking to upgrade our team Confluence from 5.3 version to latest version.

Could you please guide me the stable version for it?

Is it 5.10v or 6.0v or 6.1v ?

Also, if you guys encountered any issues while upgrading it from 5.3 to latest version. Please let me know.

Thanks for your help in advance!

Unstable versions of Confluence are released as "release candidates", not full versions.  Any version you find on the list of standard downloads is stable.

Yes, there are often problems upgrading, mostly caused by unusual usage, volume or add-ons.  I'd strongly recommend taking your 5.3 to 5.10, then 6.1 (5.3 to 6.1 is almost certainly going to throw up problems that 5.3 -> 5.10 will handle better)
