Confluence server fails during/after database setup

My fresh install of Confluence does not work.

I can fill in the setup screens until the database setup

When I click next, it runs for a few seconds and then I get this error page

Hello @Stéphane Dubois ! Thanks for sharing your situation here with our community.

As I understand, you are currently unable to finish your Confluence initial setup. This issue can be caused by a number of variables. With this in mind, let us start by ruling some of those out. Here is a list of things for us to check:

  • Database user permissions
  • Proxy in front of your instance
  • Database version compatibility with your Confluence version
  • Database setup for PostgreSQL

 

Here is our documentation to assist you with the application setup. Here it is:

 

It seems that Confluence does start, but faces some issues when dealing with the database itself. We can see the “Confluence is ready to serve” line. This leads me to believe that we have something wrong within the database settings rather than Confluence itself.

For good measure, make sure that your setup steps match these:

Hopefully, this reply will serve as a guide for your setup! Looking forward to your reply, Stéphane.
