Upgrade Procedure

Upgrading Confluence should be pretty easy. If you are upgrading from an earlier Confluence 2.1 release, you can find instructions here. We strongly recommend that you backup your confluence.home directory and database before upgrading!

If you are running a Sybase or Microsoft SQL Server database, please replace confluence/WEB-INF/classes/com/atlassian/confluence/upgrade/UpgradeUtils.class with this version before upgrading.

Changes in 2.1.4

More than 55 issues were resolved between 2.1.3 and 2.1.4. For the complete list, see: Issues resolved for 2.1.4

Note about markup for embedded content

A bug was fixed in 2.1.4 that previously allowed spaces as attribute separators in embedded content wiki markup (Release Notes 2.1.4). This means !image.jpg|alt=Great pic! now works correctly, but !image.jpg|border=1 alt=test! doesn't. The correct and documented way to write the latter continues to be !image.jpg|border=1,alt=test!.


  • {livesearch} macro results can now be limited to a particular space – Release Notes 2.1.4
