We are currently running v3.3 of Confluence and are looking to upgrade to the latest. During this upgrade, we are also moving to a new server and database, so it's basically a new installation (as opposed to an in-place upgrade).
Does anyone have experience using the awesome CLI tools that Bob Swift created to move from one version to another?
Hi Thomas, Personally I didn't have the chance of using the CLI plugin for this process. However, as Bob suggested, you can try doing one thing at the time. So you can firstly move Confluence to another server as described in https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONF33/Migrating+Confluence+Between+Servers and then proceed with the upgrade (https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONF42/Upgrading+Confluence). If you experience any problems feel free to raise a support ticket in https://support.atlassian.com
Thanks for the compliment, but, you shouldn't need the CLI to do the move unless you are thinking of continuing to run the old server for a short period of time during the move/upgrade and need some way to update page changes after the move. You might want to consider doing the move separate from the upgrade. I have done both at once, but that was some time ago going to 3.1 (I think) when things were simpler. Atlassian can better advise you on that.
