Confluence 3.5 - Plugin upload hangs on "Uploading...please wait"

Dashboard > Administration > Plugins

I click on upload plugin and choose browse. I select the downloaded .jar file (which is only 38kb) and click the upload button. The system hangs on Uploading and never comes to a finish.

Has anyone seen this before?

We had a similar issue - with us being unable to install or manage *any* plugin. For us, the issue was related to our base URL in Confluence. Once we corrected that, everything was fine.

I think this must be the case. I currently have Confluence running on another server that is using port 80 for IIS. We are publishing Confluence on port 8080. I have plans to break the font end off to another server, and I will modify the port back to the standard http one at that time. Thanks!

thanks, I've got the same issue & after changing my base URL it works like a charm

I have experienced similar symptoms where it takes a while to load. I recall that after a page refresh I was able to see the uploaded plugin listed on the list of Installed plugins.



I just gave that a try, but alas no change. The system still shows no installed User plugins. I wonder if I will have to open a ticket.

If you're developing a custom plugin, another option might be to deploy using the Atlassian PDK by using the atlassian-pdk:install Maven plugin goal, the atlas-install-plugin.bat / or the AMPS plugin

I've used both the plugin installation goal and the command line too before with success.
