Confluence Upgrade 3.2.1_01 to 3.5 - problem with database!

We are performing an Confluence upgrade and on the first startup there was an issue with the database. We are using Oracle 10g with ojdbc 1.4 driver. The following error occured in the logs and the upgrade did not complete.

2012-06-07 11:34:12,840 ERROR [main] [hibernate.tool.hbm2ddl.SchemaUpdate] execute Unsuccessful: alter table IMAGEDETAILS add constraint FKA768048734A4917E foreign key (ATTACHMENTID) references ATTACHMENTS

Found solution:

select * from IMAGEDETAILS
LEFT JOIN (SELECT * FROM ATTACHMENTS) ats on ats.ATTACHMENTID = IMAGEDETAILS.ATTACHMENTID
WHERE CONTENTTYPE is null

delete from IMAGEDETAILS where ATTACHMENTID = <id>;

What do you enter in <id> ?

the ATTACHMENTID from the select, it will return all imagedetails with no corresponding attachments.

Hi Miroslav.

An easier way to do that in a single query is:

delete from IMAGEDETAILS where ATTACHMENTID not in (select ATTACHMENTID from ATTACHMENTS);

I'm late to this game. We had the some problem upgrading from Confluence 4.3 to 5.0.3.

What are these missing rows used for? What is the consequence of deleting them? Why were they missing in the first place?
