Always when upgrading Confluence I am following these steps:

1, Backup database

mysqldump -u <DB_USER> -p<DB_PASSWORD> <DB_NAME> -h <DB_ENDPOINT> -P<DB_PORTA> > <BACKUP_DIRECTORY>/<BACKUP_NAME>.sql

2. Backup home directory (i.e /var/atlassian/)

tar -zcvf <JIRA_HOME_DIRECTORY>.tar.gz <JIRA_HOME_PATH>/application-data

3. Backup installation directory (i.e /opt/atlassian/)

tar -zcvf <JIRA_INSTALL>.tar.gz <JIRA_INSTALL_PATH>/jira

 

When doing the downgrade you need to:

1. Stop Confluence

2. Restore Database from backup

3. Restore home directory from backup

4. Restore installation directory from backup

5. Start confluence

To "roll back" to the previous version, you restore the backups you took before you upgraded.  Installation directory, database and home directory, in full.
