  1. Confluence is a pure Java application and should run on this platform provided the JRE or JDK requirement is satisfied. 
  2. While some customers run Confluence on SPARC-based hardware, Atlassian only officially supports Confluence running on x86 hardware and 64-bit derivatives of x86 hardware.
  3. Ensure that you configure your Confluence MySQL database to use the InnoDB storage engine as the MyISAM storage engine could lead to data corruption. 
  4. Confluence includes an embedded H2 database. This database is fine for evaluation purposes, but for production environments, we only support running Confluence with one of the supported external database listed on this page. 
  5. Confluence is tested with these versions of Internet Explorer in standards-compliant rendering mode, not compatibility mode. Enabling compatibility mode may cause problems because it emulates older, unsupported rendering modes.
  6. Chrome does not support WEBDAV so features such as Edit in Word for attachments will not work. See CONF-23322.
  7. Creating and editing is not supported in the mobile web view on iOS or Android devices. See CONF-19523.
  8. The native iOS mobile app is only available for Confluence Cloud sites, it is not available for Confluence Server.
  9. NFS mounts are not supported on Linux operating systems due to Lucene requirements.
  10. We don't currently support MariaDB or Percona Server. See  CONF-36471 Open  and  CONF-29060 Open  for more information. 
  11. We only support the Tomcat version that is bundled with your specific Confluence version.
  12. You need to have Javascript enabled to install Confluence. Setting your Internet Explorer security level as 'High' will disable Javascript and prevent you from installing Confluence. See this knowledge base article for more information.
  13. In order for web clients to connect to Synchrony, the engine that powers Collaborative editing, reverse proxies must be configured to allow WebSocket connections.
