Versioning Spaces in Confluence

We're currently trialing Confluence and would like to know how we can 'version' a space, much the same as the confluence system your site uses. For example, we're creating technical document for a product. We release the product eg version 2.0. We therefore need to version the help for that version. How can we do this in Confluence?

Confluence doesn't really have the concept of versioning a space. The best way to acomplish this is to use the Copy Space plugin (https://plugins.atlassian.com/plugin/details/212) to create a copy of the space, including the version number in the space name and space key, and setting permissions to read-only.

I would agree with Mitch that the best approach is to use the Copy Space plugin. You may also want to have a look at http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Developing+Technical+Documentation+on+Confluence+Wiki and
http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Managing+the+Life+Cycle+of+your+Technical+Documentation which walks through using Confluence for technical documentation for specific releases of your product.
