24 Sep Confluence upgrading to 4.0 from 3.8
Upgrading confluence would have been really simple if we wanted to retain the same server. It’s a simple process:
- Stop the service
- Backup MySQL database
- Backup confluence application directory
- Backup data directory
- Upgrade any applications that are available to be upgraded
- Install the tar.gz from Confluence
- Start the process
- Wait around 10 minutes for indexes to be rebuilt.
However, we went a slightly different path, including an upgrade to Ubuntu OS 12.04 (from RHEL 5.0). Click here for our step by step process on upgrading Confluence from 3.8 to 4.0.
