My dilemma is that I am a sole trader maintaining a personal wiki in Confluence 5.10.8 on PostgreSQL and every 5 or so years I need to migrate that to a new laptop.
I have no skills in administering PostgreSQL and no wish to acquire them because I do not use this or any other DBMS for any other purpose.
So far my outlay has been $10 per year for a starter license which has been excellent value.
I've just started reading about Confluence Cloud which I believe I could access for $100 per year as 1 user.

I was not able to find a smooth way to use it although I love using Confluence the whole day in my company.
It’s been great to hear from fellow users over the last few weeks about the best tips and fun moments you’ve had working on Confluence since the transition to working remote. I’d love to keep the c...
