Sorry to hear about this problem. But your suspicion about the database versions is most likely correct.  This version of Confluence does not support Postgres 12 yet.  Please see Confluence 7.13 Supported Platforms for a complete list of the supported platforms.

As for next steps, I'd recommend setting up a Postgres 11 database, and then restoring your database to that instance first.  Alternatively, upgrading to a version at or above 7.17.x (such as 7.17.4 or 7.18.1) would add support for Postgres 12 per the Confluence 7.17 supported platforms.

ok, thanks @Andy Heinzer 
i will try 7.17.4 again
