Confluence 3.3.1 Upgrade Notes
Below are some important notes on upgrading to Confluence 3.3.1. Confluence 3.3.1 is a recommended upgrade which fixes some security flaws as well as other bugs. For more details, please read the Confluence 3.3.1 Release Notes.
On this page:
- We have fixed a security flaw in this release that compromised the Secure Administrator Sessions (WebSudo) feature that was introduced in Confluence 3.3. Read the security advisory for more details.
- There is known issue in this release where you will not be able to add permissions to a page when copying it. We are addressing this issue. In the meantime, you can work around this by creating a new page, copying the wiki markup from the page that you want to copy and applying permissions to the new page. See CONF-20584 for more information.
If you are already running a version of Confluence, please follow these instructions to upgrade to the latest version:
- Before you upgrade, we strongly recommend that you back up your Confluence Home directory and database.
The Confluence Home directory is the folder where Confluence stores its configuration information, search indexes and page attachments. Another term for 'Home directory' would be 'data directory'.
Read more about finding your Home directory.
- If your version of Confluence is earlier than 3.3, read the release notes and upgrade guides for all releases between your version and the latest version. In particular:
- Download the latest version of Confluence.
- Follow the instructions in the Upgrade Guide.
Useful PluginsBefore installing an add-on (also called a plugin) into your Confluence site, please check the add-on's information page to see whether it is supported by Atlassian, by another vendor, or not at all. See our guidelines on add-on support.
- Appfire's Upgrade Assistant for Confluence (UAC) is a commercial plugin that simplifies the upgrade process into an easy-to-use wizard.
