I attempted to upgrade from confluence 3.5.2 to 4.1.5. It starts up fine and I can get to the login screen but no matter what I do I cannot login. I've tried everything I can think of. There aren't any errors in the logs, that I can find, which would explain this. The log tells me that I failed to login but does not tell me why.
I even went through some steps I found on the confluence confluence :P for manually changing my password through SQL: http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Restoring+Passwords+To+Recover+Admin+User+Rights
but this did not help.
I'm not using Crowd. I'm not using LDAP.
I have no idea why it's failing to authenticate me. It always worked before. Also, when I click the forgot password link, I'm told that I don't have a mail server configured and I do! I'm triple checked that my javax.mail.Session resource is in server.xml exactly like it's supposed to be, as is my javax.sql.DataSource resource for the database. The data source is referenced from data/confluence-cfg.xml just like it's supposed to be. I've verified that the username/password can connect to the database over localhost.
I've even tried changing the security log level in log4j.properties to DEBUG and it didn't give me any extra information. I have no idea what's wrong.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
It doesn't look like it. I'm using MySQL,
mysql> select directory_name,active from cwd_directory; +-------------------------------+--------+ | directory_name | active | +-------------------------------+--------+ | Confluence Internal Directory | T | +-------------------------------+--------+ 1 row in set (0.00 sec) mysql>
I appear to have fixed the problem... Although I have NO idea why it worked. I was trying to figure out what was happening so I enabled the MySQL query log so I could see what queries were being executed, mostly just to confirm that they WERE being executed. At any rate, enabling the query log required a MySQL restart and after that I was able to log in.... It fixed it but I have no idea why.
