I've seen this a couple of times. It can happen if you add a plugin of some sort to Confluence, use it for a while, and then remove it, without deleting the data that uses the plugin. When Confluence tries to run the backup, it's reaching out for code to handle the data it finds, and going "bang" because it can't find it.

That may not be the cause at all here, but it is one possible cause.

Might I start by asking why you're exporting though? For large or complex Confluence installs, moving servers should really be done with database backup/restore (assuming you're not changing database)

Hi Nic,

thanks for your answer. The working Confluence is Version 3.3 maybe this is the Problem. I will move it to a new server so i can test the upgrade path.

The attachment filesystem is 12Gb big, but the Database is :

mysql> SELECT table_schema "Database Name", sum( data_length + index_length ) / 1024 / 1024 "Database Size in MB" FROM information_schema.TABLES GROUP BY table_schema;

+--------------------+---------------------+

| Database Name | Database Size in MB |

+--------------------+---------------------+

| confluence | 59.24559498 |

| information_schema | 0.00781250 |

+--------------------+---------------------+

2 rows in set (0.13 sec)

Only 60MB.

The Confluence installation is very old and nobody has an Idea which of the installed plugins are in use... strange. my job is now to move the installation to a new server and update the installation. The same job for jira :/

Hm i can try a mysqldump. Maybe this will help.

Thank you !

Don't worry about the attachments - you take them separately from the database and they don't change format.

I'd definitely use a mysqldump to clone the database - just make sure the Confluence is stopped when you take the dump (or you're replicating and able to dump the slave copy while replication is stopped)
