I was following the Atlassian documentation which mentioned that I should create manual backups of confluences attachments (or more generally, the whole home folder) and backup the MySQL database which supports it, instead of using the built in confluence XML backup. The server which I was running has stopped functioning and I'm trying to migrate to a new one now. I have a MySQL backup, as well as a backed up copy of my home directory, but I'm not sure how to use these to restore my instance on a new server. Do I re-install confluence as a blank instance, then overwrite the home directory and MySQL database data? Or is there a better process to follow with what I have? Thanks.
(I'm actually in this boat with all of my products, Crowd and JIRA as well).
Notes: Running on a Ubuntu Server
If you have those two backup files, it is not necessary for you to install a fresh instance. Please try the following steps
Hope it helps.
