When I click the link to view the error I get the following (using Chrome on a Mac)???? How do I read the error? This happens on ALL errors in the error log

Hi Lee,

As an alternative solution (which also allows you to continue using your browser of choice).

Simply perform the following (whilst logged in as an admin account or have access to admin settings).

  1. Navigate to Bamboo administration (it's under the cog next to your display picture on the top right)
  2. Select the General configuration settings which are under the System group
  3. Select Save

This has the effect of disabling the extra layer of gzip compression that is currently causing this bug.

You can than view the error logs again smile

Thank you Nathan, that worked a treat
