I have reinstalled the operating system on my virtual server with a different os. Then I installed confluence using the installer, installation succeeded. Now I point my browser to the confluence site and I can enter the license and setup database connection. I created a database user for confluence on my local mysql installation and imported the confluence-db backup. When I configure confluence to use the database containing the backup, I get the error message:
The following error(s) occurred:
Confluence tables already exist in the selected database.
The problem that I see is that a) the backup should contain my old pages and b) the server-id is stored in the old db, so I really want to use the backup.
How is it possible to use the backup database in the new installation?
In this case I suggest you to continue the installation using a new database.
After the installation is finished, you can point your confluence to use the database with the backup data.
You can change this on confluence.cfg.xml, inside Confluence Home folder:
When confluence433 is the name of Confluence's database that you can change.
Hope it helps!
