Confluence PDF exporter freezes

Hey guys,

I'm trying to export a space to PDF, but every time I try it freezes at exactly 52% complete, while it says it's converting the first page. I've tried disabling my layout and stylesheet, but that didn't help. The HTML and XML exporters work perfectly, so I think the problem is with the PDF funtionality specifically.

Does anyone have an idea of what's wrong, or what might be done about it?

Hey Tommy,

Can you please share what version of Confluence you're running there? Also, have you had the chance to check the atlassian-confluence.log file in order to search for related errors? We might get some useful information in there to troubleshoot it.



Thanks! We fixed it – we were unknowingly trying to export a few dead links from an experied free trial of Confluence
