confluence server setup

Would it be possible to duplicate another same confluence ap server by another SEN to connect the same database to practice reduction exercise? If possible, how to setup it ?

(additional information: I mean I can duplicate ap and database server, but I don't know to to run it without affect production server)

Thanks a lot.

It will not work. As soon as one Confluence finds another instance writing to the same database but not being part of its cluster, application will stop in panic.

If you wanna practice, you should duplicate not only app but the database too. Make sure to reconfigure application copy to use database copy. You would also have adjust base URL and maybe application URL in conf/server.xml file.

This way it will work with no issues.

Thanks a lot. How can I prevent production confluence to detect my duplicate confluence to make production crash?

You don't.  You wouldn't want to - two separate confluences using the same database will quickly corrupt the database and fall over.

You must copy database and attachments to their own separate areas if you want to run another Conflunce starting with a copy of the production data.
