What is the datasoucename?

Hi, Confluence was installed on a Linux server, linked to a SQL database. The Linux server had an issue and Confluence will no longer run. We are getting away from Linux and have no experience in managing it. Have decided to move Confluence to a Windows 2012 server, but I am stuck at the "datasourcename".

Datasource Name — The JNDI name of the datasource, as configured in the application server.
Note: Some servers will have JNDI names like jdbc/datasourcename; others will be of the formjava:comp/env/jdbc/datasourcename. Consult your application-server documentation.

For example: Datasource names will be decide in <install-dir>/conf/server.xml

In that we have like <Resourcename="jdbc/myDS"

validationQuery="Select 1"
Then here "myDS" is the data source name. See

Feel free to mark it as answer if the answer helps you.

Thanks Patina, I'm not sure if this helps or not, i'm not knowleable on Linux or Confluence, so this answer might as well be written in another language.
