Change the Database server

Hi, I have installed confluence on a windows server and when i was installing the application, it asked me to provide the DB details. I have pointed to one of the DB servers and we lost the DB because of some issues.  I would like to point the DB to another server now and make sure confluence is up and running.

Thank you.

if you lost your current Confluence DB you will have to revert to one of your backups - hopefully you still had the XML backups enabled.

C:\Program Files\Atlassian\Application Data\Confluence\confluence.cfg.xml

The relevant parts that need to be edited are shown in the below screencap.
