Load Content

If you are evaluating or demonstrating Confluence, or are introducing Confluence to users who are new to the idea of a Wiki, we recommend the example site as the best way to become acquainted with what Confluence can do for you. More experienced users will want to start with an empty site, or restore a backup of their own.

Example Site

Recommended: Load the 'Demonstration Space' to begin working with Confluence immediately.

Empty Site

Start with an empty site. After finishing the setup you will need to create at least one space before you can add any content of your own.

Restore From Backup

Use data from another installation of Confluence. If you are migrating to another database or replicating Confluence you will probably want to select this option.
