On a test server I have been trying to upgrade confluence from our current production version (2.6.3) to the current version. I successfully upgraded to 2.7.4 but when I try to upgrade to 3.5.17 I get:
2012-12-04 09:17:29 (EventLevel: error) (EventType: upgrade) Upgrade failed. Please consult the system logs for details. You will need to fix these problems, restore your database and confluence home directory to the pre upgrade state. Then retry the upgrade.
The log file has the following:
2012-12-03 15:50:21,677 ERROR main apache.catalina.session.ManagerBase doLoad IOException while loading persisted sessio

I tried searching the KB but the link that I found lead back to the search page. Should I be using a different release to do the upgrade? I'm really new to confluence and am still learning the ropes, so please forgive my ignorance.
I believe that would useful to provide your confluence log or create a support ticket to better investigate, so first check if you have upgraded Confluence according to this doc:
You may have the same issue I had. Bad data in your tables.
Here is one link that helped.
and this one.
For the page above. I didn't use
contentid = XXXX;
I needed to run
CONTENTID = <id>
Actually is not possible to upgrade and load in the data tables after. If you're still having problems with your upgrade I would suggest you to raise a support ticket at our support.atlassian.com and attach the log files from your last attempt and so we will be able to perform a better investigation to find the root cause of the problem and help you with your upgrade.
