I upgraded our existing Confluence installation with the 64-bit executable of 4.3.2. I followed the Confluence Installation and Upgrade Guide. Below are my installation notes.

Changed the Modified Files
In the aui-overrides-css.vm, I added something for line 9
In the seraph-config.xml, I commented out one line and uncommented another
In the crowd.properties, I changed the values to be what they should be
In server.xml, I changed some of the values in <context and="" added="" a="" resource="" <="" p="">
Re-Removed the Removed Files
Mail-1.4.1.jar -- copied and pasted into the root lib folder and renamed (the one in the Confluence web-inf folder) with a .bak extension
Activation.jar -- copied and pasted into the root lib folder and renamed (the one in the Confluence web-inf folder) with a .bak extension
Re-Added the Added Files
Copied and pasted from the backup, except for the .bak files and the mail-1.4.1.jar and activation.jar that I addressed in the Removed Files section
After all of this, I started the Confluence service back up. Now when I browse to our Confluence page, I get this 404 error message:
HTTP Status 404 -
type Status report
description The requested resource () is not available.
Is there any way I can get some help fixing this? Do I need to roll back to the previous version?
We need to look into Confluence's logs in regard of this. However I would really encourage you to raise a support ticket at https://support.atlassian.com. Please do include atlassian-confluence.log and catalina.out files that can be found in confluence-home/logs and confluence-install/logs respectively.
