Confluence to Foswiki converter


Firstly we wanted to migrate from our current wiki (Confluence 4) to TWiki. I found a converter tool from Confluence to Twiki but this doesn't work for Confluence 4. So i wrote a Question in the Support Forum of Twiki if anybody can help me with this tool but till now i got no answere.
So maybe this Support Forum is much more better then the Twiki one, and we will change to Foswiki.

I found the plugin ConfluenceToTwikiAddon ( and tried to import data without success. The Connection to Confluence work fine also the export to the TWiki server work fine and the unzip. But then i get the message: [ERROR],[main:: 70],No entities.xml found
I think the Problem is that each webspace from Confluence is exported in it's own folder and in this folder there is the entities.xml

The main thing is that we would like transfer our Confluence Content to Foswiki. Has somebody experience with that and can help me?

Many thanks

Heya Thomas,

Hopefully someone who has migrated from Confluence can help you. But if not, you could consider talking to one of us consultants - perhaps there's a code change needed because its a different version of confluence :/

Hi, have you solved this issue somehow? Im running into the same problem. One thing I did was editing the In Line 69 it asks for the status of $flag, which imho can only be 0 and lead to an error. So I hardly set it to 1 in that line. The error "No entities.xml found" vanished with that, but unfortunately it still doesn't write any files containing Twiki-Text.. Any other Ideas? Best regards, Michael

All, just to clarify a bit more on what SvenDowideit suggested. Most of the volunteers here probably don't have access to Confluence, so it's rather difficult or impossible to resolve issues in the blind. The original migration tool was contributed back to the community by one of the consultants. If you can locally work out the issue we would appreciate if you could contribute back the fixes that you made. Otherwise it would probably require a consultant to do the work on your behalf, as they would need access to Confluence, and your data as well.

And can you tell the reasons why do you want to migrate?
