Can't Export the Space, Throwing an error

Dear Team,

We are exporting the Space from version 5.0.3 confluence, but we are getting an error

"There was an error in the export. Please check your log files. :Couldn't backup database data."

Is there any possibility like we can export the spaces from backend(Data base)?

Request you to give us a solution.

There is no database export of spaces.  You can get a backup from it, but not an export.

You need to fix the error in the standard export really.  What does the log say the problem is?

Hi Nic,


If we take a backup of the spaces from the Database, can we import it in the confluence?




A backup is only suitable for recreating the system you backed up.  You can not "import" from it, other than to recreate everything (and destroy the data in the target database)
