Install option

Is this right for you?

Install Confluence using an installer

This is the easiest method for installing Confluence. If you're evaluating Confluence, use this option or try Confluence Cloud free.

Install Confluence from a zip or archive file

This option requires you to manually install files and configure some system properties. Use this option if there isn't an installer for your operating system.

The EAR/WAR distribution is no longer available, you should use this option if you previously deployed Confluence into an existing application server.

Install Confluence in a cluster

Windows or Linux

Confluence Data Center is a clustered solution for large enterprises. Read the Confluence Data Center Technical Overview to find out if Confluence Data Center is right for your organisation.

(info) If you have not already done so, please verify that this version of the Confluence documentation matches that of the Confluence version you are installing. The Confluence documentation version you are currently viewing is indicated toward the top of the page tree on the left or in the 'breadcrumb trail' in the top banner of this page. If you need to access a different version of the Confluence documentation, use the control at the top of the page tree on the left or you can access it from the documentation home page.
