Confluence don't start after update from 7.11.1 to 7.12.2 Edited

I have just updated my Confluence server and doesn't boot. I really like Confluence but the latest updates are crap and Atlassian doesn't even provide any support.

These errors are very clear - you've run out of memory for the process.  Confluence is not light on memory (few Java applications are in my opinion), but an upgrade from 7.11 to 7.12 really shouldn't be chewing up more memory.

What memory settings is this actually ending up running with?

Easiest way to tell is if it's still running is to run "ps -ef | grep -i java" on the command line (apologies if you're on windows, I can't tell from your logs) and look for variables containing the word MEMORY in the three or four lines that show the running process.  If you don't see memory, look for Xmx instead.  What are the numbers for those variables?

Java process dies after running the confluence start script , so the ps won't provide useful information. Thank you anyway for your answer. As I take a backup of everything every day I will make a rollback to version 7.11.1.

Ah, ok, that was just a quick and dirty trick.  It can still work - if you chuck the startup into the background and run the ps immediately, you should get something:

./start-confuence.sh & ; sleep 1 ; ps -ef | grep -i java

will run the script, give it 1 second to get started and then do the search (I'd expect a crashing Confluence to go for a few seconds before it fails)

Restore a database backup and the confluence pre-update installation path has been fast. I couldn't spend the time needed for troubleshooting now. I think will skip this upgrade for now.
