Upgrading Confluence from 5.10.4 to 6.2.1

Upgrading Confluence Test server on Windows Server 2012. 

I cannot access the site through the web browser.  I get a this site can't be reached. Has anyone else had issues while upgrading to from version 5 to version 6?

Also a novice to Confluence, I don't totally understand the "Upgrading configuration files after upgrading" and the re-apply any modifications. To me it's very vague. The instructions need to be more detailed. It states reapply and additions. What additions?

If someone could help a struggling Confluence user, I would great appreciate it. Thanks

To answer the second part of the question (because Lars has got the first half spot on already):

>Also a novice to Confluence, I don't totally understand the "Upgrading configuration files after upgrading"

It can't list any hacks you've made to your config, as it's your system.  If you have not changed any of the config, you installed Confluence off-the-shelf, then you have nothing to do here.  If you have made changes, you will need to validate them all (still needed?  Right format for new version, etc) and re-apply the ones you do decide you need.  The docs can't guess at what you might do!

(Frankly, most of us change the Tomcat connector to allow for a proxy and fiddle with the memory and logging a bit.  Nothing huge)
