Cannot upgrade to Confluence 3.1.x when using Crowd integration
Upgrading a Confluence instance that is connected to Crowd to Confluence version 3.1.x returns this error:
You did not enter a valid username and password for a Confluence administrator.
Confluence 3.1.x requires a version 2 license key, for this it requires admin user's username and password to complete the procedure. Unfortunately it does not honor Crowd Confluence Admin user.
- Setup a new instance of Confluence 3.1.x that is not connected to Crowd and use a version 2 license key.
confluence.license.hashfrom the new instance and copy these across to the target instance's
confluence.cfg.xmlwhere you want to upgrade.
- Redo the upgrade process.
The problem is corrected in Confluence 3.2. See Cannot upgrade to Confluence 3.1.x when using Crowd integration.
