Confluence database can't create attachements table?

A collegue of mine did a confluence upgrade that went bad. I am trying to roll back to previous version.


  • Restore backed up HOME directory
  • Restore backed up INSTALL directory
  • Restore backed up database


It is going bad when trying to execute the SQL file on the database with:

ERROR 1005 (HY000) at line 1667: Can't create table 'confluence.ATTACHMENTS' (errno: 121)

Anybody have any ideas?

This widget could not be displayed.

MySQL right?  Looks like your indices have gone bang.  When you "restored backed up database", did you completely drop the target first and recreate a clean empty database?

I ended up wiping the database and recreating it then doing the import. Worked fine.
