We met the exact issue trying to prevented by above ticket.

After we upgrade to 5.1.2, confluence failed to start up and shows the version of home directory does not match the database version.

The home directory version is: 3396, and the database version is: 4216.

It seems that your database is on version 5.1.1 but the dbconfig file is still using 4.3.5, that might be the problem, can you please double check whether you've download the correct installation kit for Confluence 5.1.2?
