Installing Confluence



  • Hi Team,

    I am attempting to install Confluence using the documentation on this site. I keep getting stuck at the step that says "Use the cloudron logs to get database settings." Do I use the "Logs" button from the Cloudron UI? It isn't obvious to me what the database settings are from that output.

    Thanks in advance for the help.



  • Yes the "Logs" button should work, depending on how many log lines were already printed, you may have to click on "Download Full Logs". The output should look something like this from my test installation:

    This should give you the correct database and futher configuration values for confluence. If you cannot find those even then, try to reconfigure the app and then redownload the logs.



  • Thanks, that worked! I appreciate the help. A couple additional things came up:

    1. The LDAP page on Confluence has a bunch of required fields that don't seem to be in the logs. Some of them appear to be answered on this page, but not all. For example, "directory type", "user name RDN attribute", and "user last name attribute".

    2. Would it be possible to update Confluence from 6.5.1 to the current version (6.8.1)? Atlassian has an official mobile app for Confluence now that works with this self-hosted version - but only starting at server version 6.8. Having access to that mobile app would be very useful.

    Thanks again!



  • @nebulon Just following up as to whether there were plans to update Confluence in the foreseeable future (to allow for use of their mobile app)?



  • @FTLAUDMAN yes, we plan to keep it updated. We are a bit busy with the 2.1 release but since it's now out, we will get it updated this week.



  • That's great! Thank you!



  • @girish I'm sure you have all been really busy with 2.1 and 2.2 (and thanks for those!), but I'm wondering if an update for Confluence v6.9 is still being planned soon?



  • Hi @girish - just checking in on the status of this update. Thanks.



  • @FTLAUDMAN sorry for the delay, will get to it for sure this week.



  • @FTLAUDMAN We have pushed updates to Confluence. The mobile app also works.



  • @girish Thank you! I've been using it this past month and it works very well.
