Change the default database to SQL Server

I want to change the default hsql database to Microsoft SQL Server.

After I changed the value of "confluence.home" key in the file "C:\Program Files\Atlassian\Confluence\confluence\WEB-INF\classes\confluence-init.properties" to SQL server database location, and restart the service of confluence. I try to access the server address of confluence it will show the following error page. I can't re-select the external database.

You need to read the log file further up to see what has gone wrong.  

However, just changing one file to change the database in use is not enough.  For a start, you've hit completely the wrong file, and you've not mentioned the installation of the drivers either.

Please check https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Migrating+to+Another+Database to see what you should be doing.
