Database JDBC Drivers

This page provides the download links for the JDBC drivers for all databases currently supported for Confluence. You will need to make the driver available to your application server, as described in the appropriate setup guide.

Note: We bundle some JDBC drivers with Confluence, as shown below. If you are using a direct JDBC connection, you do not need to download or install the drivers that are bundled. If you are connecting via a datasource, or if you are using a database whose driver is not bundled, you will need to download and install the drivers manually.

9.2-1004 JDBC 4 driver download



The JDBC 4 driver will work under the 1.7 JVM. If you want to use other drivers, you can download it from the PostgreSQL website. However, we recommend that you use the bundled JDBC 4 driver.Database Setup for PostgreSQL

Microsoft SQL Server


jTDS 1.2.2 driver download


The above version is the version bundled with Confluence. All our testing is done on that version. We do not know of any issues with later versions, so you are free to use them if you have tested them and find there are no issues in your environment. However, later versions are technically not supported. That means that if you do run into any problems, Atlassian Support may require you to move back to the above fully- tested version for troubleshooting.

Connector\J 5.1.30 driver download


Note: In Confluence 5.1 and later, the MySQL drivers are no longer included in the Confluence distribution. For more information please refer to the Confluence 5.1 Upgrade Notes.

  • For Oracle 11.1, use the driver (ojdbc6.jar).

We recommend using the thin drivers only.
