I am trying to restore Confluence pages from a backup Confluence instance on a VM (or alternatively copy the entire page tree over). How would I approach this best as I cannot click and drag or copy a page?
Background: I had one space with contents that needed to be divided over two spaces. Hence, I created a second space and copied the relevant info over. That went well. Then I went on to tailor the first space (i.e. remove a range of pages from the first space which were specific to the second space). That went well too. Then I accidentally deleted the newly created (second) space. As spaces cannot be recovered once deleted, and I lost the site-specific pages in the first space after tailoring, I would have to start from scratch again. Luckily we did have a backup which I can access via a VM. The idea was to copy the pages from the original 'tailored' space (before tailoring) to a new space on the cloud.
Question: what is the most efficient way of doing that?
I know one can export single pages to Word and then import them into Confluence in the cloud, but I would like to do it in batch if that were possible (it would save time, as the VM backup access expires by tomorrow.. )
Any help, ideas, tips or tricks are very welcome!
All the best
Thank you for your response.
There are too many pages to export them one by one.
I have exported an xml file of the entire space and tried to follow the manual with regards to importing the xml file, but I cannot find the "General Configuration > Backup and Restore" under the cogwheel. Is this something that only admins see?
Thank you for your response. I have received admin rights.
On the page to import content, it seems that it's only text files that can be imported, while I have a zip file (with lots of directories, I suppose one for each page, including images) from the xml export of the confluence space. Can I use a zip file?
How would I know where the import directory is (don't know the dir paths)? Could I upload the file from my desktop?
