We are going to upgrade our Wiki instance from 4.3.7 to 5.7. We also need to move our DB off of a MSSQL 2005 machine to a MSSQL 2012 machine.
Do we go ahead and do the upgrade to 5.7 using MSSQL 2005 DB, THEN move the DB over? Or do we move
the DB first then upgrade?
It's a sticky question, Mike, because Confluence 4.3.7 doesn't support SQL Server 2012 and Confluence 5.7 doesn't support SQL Server 2005. Please try upgrading the database first, then Confluence, but try in a test environment.
I would go by this document: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Migrating+to+Another+Database It describes a method using the XML backup (for smaller instances) as well as a method using native db tools.
