I restore an little bakup file.

Then restore the big file, then success.

Since the backup is quite huge in size, the restoration process may take some time to finish but if its taking up so much time, hours and hours had passed by but the process is still not finished, it's time to check <confluence-home>/logs/atlassian-confluence.log and check if there is any erorr reported which is related to the process. Then, we can determine/find out if the task is actually successful or might be stucked halfway.

May I know if you were trying to migrate a version of Confluence from one server to another server or upgrading a Confluence instance to a higher version?

The error log fond is some group not found.

I change a 400M backup file, then restore success.

I change restore the env from 5.2.8 to 5.2.8.


How do you change Backup file size to 400 MB? rest of the file how you split it? Could you please give some insight on this?

I know its been long days. If you remember it would be help for us
