What backup process gives you this error?  What file is it complaining about?

Hello ,

So I am trying to do a manual backup which it must store in its default location which is : /var/atlassian/application-data/confluence/backups

Ok, and what file is it complaining about?  What is the rest of the error message?

java.io.IOException: No such file or directory
at java.io.UnixFileSystem.createFileExclusively(Native Method)
at java.io.File.createNewFile(File.java:1012)
at com.atlassian.core.util.FileUtils.copyFile(FileUtils.java:405)

Ok, so it either doesn't have the rights to access the directory or file, or it's out of space, or there is a disk error, or you have deleted a directory it needs.

You may be able to find something in the system logs, but check the access first.

permissions are all correct , its daemon.daemon and files and directories are also present.

You need to do some trouble-shooting. The app thinks it can't write the file; you insist it can. Why do you have different opinions?

Like Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ likes this

@James Bullockis right.

I might have sugar-coated it more, or been more blunt, depending on my mood while reading and writing, but he is right.  The app can't write to the file, and it tells you that.  You do not believe it.  Explain why you think it is wrong? 

I have got this corrected, issue was the backup file path was misleading in the administration panel, when I checked in db in table "BANDANA" it was different. Corrected that and it worked!

 

Thanks
