Will there be a migration path from Confluence 3.5 -> 5 ?

I know Confluence 5.0 is still in beta,... but will there be a direct upgrade possible from Confluence 3.5, or will we first have to upgrade to 4.x?

Thanks in advance.

Normally, Atlassian recommends to upgrade to the latest mayor version number before going to a new mayor number version. This is because upgrades between mayor version are tested that way.

In your case, the path would be to upgrade to 4.3.x before going for 5.x.

Hello Stuartu,

You can upgrade directly to version 5.0. Should not be a problem :) However, you can try the upgrade on a test environment first.

You can take a look at this guide:

Cheers.
