We are currently using confluence 4.3.3 but we want to move to 5. However we dont want to lose time with upgrade procedures so is there a way to port everything to confluence 5 after a clean install ?
That makes no sense. A "move" IS an upgrade. Confluence 5 can't use version 4 data, it MUST be upgraded to be readable to 5.
If you exported the version 4 data and import it into version 5, or point a version 5 install at version 4 data, it will upgrade. Not move. Upgrade.
A move may not be always an upgrade; for some applications you can just export data from old one and import to new one which generally takes like 5 minutes. And always makes sense when this kind of upgrade is available.
Anyway we will try the old school version of upgrade then. Please consider writing a middle-ware to ease the process.
A "move" would be moving to the same version. If it's a new version, it IS an upgrade. You don't need any middleware or anything else - I mentioned both standard ways of *upgrading* a Confluence from 4 to 5 already - you should use one of them. 1. You could export and import - that is "old school". The import routines will see version 4 data and go "oh, that needs an upgrade" and do that for you. 2. Or you can "point a 5 installation at a 4 data set". It will detect that it needs upgrading and do it. The BEST way to do that is to use a version 5 installer to do the upgrade for you - that will also upgrade your data.
If you were upgrading the legacy app to our new one, you might have run into the error below while trying to authenticate. We're still investigating the cause of this but here's a workaround...
