Migrating from HSQL to External SQL DB


I am currently using Confluence 3.5 on Linux and the standard HSQL database. I am trying to migrate my DB to SQL. I followed the instructions from Confluence but when I start up confluence I am supposed to get the setup wizard but it just goes straight into Confluence still using the HSQL DB.

How do I force it to go into the setup wizard? From there I can change the database settings but I cannot get to the setup wizard.

Any help would be much appreciated.
