How to Revert from Clustering to Single Node
This article does not apply to Confluence Data Center, it only applies to Confluence clustered 5.4 or earlier.
Disabling a Cluster
If reverting from a Clustered configuration, one solution is to back up the data, install a new stand-alone, and restore the data. This is the recommended approach. An alternative is:
- Download the standard (non-clustered) distribution from the Confluence Downloads
- Point confluence-init.properties to the existing confluence-home directory.
- Set in confluence.cfg.xml:
To check to see if clustering has been disabled, look in the logs after the xml during startup. In your catalina.out, you have:
INFO [KB:main] [KB:confluence.cluster.tangosol.TangosolClusterManager] startCluster Bringing up cluster service
This line won't exist if you start it up with the config we gave above. That's how to test it.
