Hi can you give me the detailed steps on upgrading from 5.6.3 to latest version . I have tried upgrading directly and have resulted in errors with the database . I had to move the database to a different instance as well.
1) Upgraded using the upgrade existing server during installation option
2) Database upgration done using the steps defined in
3) Dumped existing database and followed steps in
But still Im getting the database error when starting up .
How can i resolve it is there any step i missed ?
Every time i switch a confluence server or database it has become headache
It looks like the upgrade didn't get started properly because of a licensing issue - this is from the log you linked:
2017-08-16 15:13:58,506 ERROR [localhost-startStop-2] [confluence.upgrade.impl.DefaultUpgradeManager] runUpgradePrerequisites Current license is not valid: SUPPORT_EXPIRED

2017-08-16 15:14:00,232 ERROR [localhost-startStop-2] [atlassian.confluence.plugin.PluginFrameworkContextListener] launchUpgrades 1: <p>Confluence support and upgrades for your current license have expired.</p><p>Please access <a href="http://my.atlassian.com">My Atlassian</a> as the license contact and purchase a license renewal for Confluence. If you have a new license, please enter it on this <a href="$CONTEXT/fixonly/fixlicense.action">page</a> and <b>restart</b>.</p><p>Alternatively, you can continue using Confluence by rolling back to a previous version. To do this you must perform a clean installation of Confluence of the version that needs to be restored then restore the confluence home directory to its pre-upgrade state. No database restorations need to be made.</p>
You may continue the upgrade by getting an evaluation license from https://my.atlassian.com and applying it before upgrading - eventually a new license will be needed, of course. Please see: What happens when the included maintenance ends?
In migrating the database, did you follow the documentation on Migrating to Another Database? I'd recommend having a look at that to make sure there's nothing you didn't miss.
If not, can you provide a few of the error lines from your startup messages so we can have a look?
Im moving it to another mysql instance itself , I have given the links in my question that specifies same.
I have gone through the steps of converting the collation and now i get a different error in webpage - no error in catalina.out.
