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?
I suggest you to install Confluence in a new and clean database.
After your Confluence is successfully installed, you can edit your <confluence-home>/confluence.cfg.xml to change the database, putting the name of the backup database on the property tag:
Hope it helps!!
