Hi Samar,

As pointed in the stacktrace, the cause of this issue is probably incorrect collation

2014-03-07 18:39:48,603 ERROR [main] [atlassian.confluence.setup.BootstrapApplicationStartupListener] checkConfigurationOnStartup Detected tables with non-default collation. Seehttps://confluence.atlassian.

Since this error occur after the ugparde process, I suspect that the upgrade might not have completed properly due to the incorrect. The upgrade process for newer version of Confluence is much more sensitve toward the wrong collation therefore if you have incorrect collation in the database the upgrade will fail.


It is best that you rollback to your pre upgrade state, then change your collation as mentioned in this KB. After that perform the upgrade again.

Hi Samar,

Don't worry we are here to help.

Check the permission of the directory and grant writable permission to your directory. I would also recommend you to clear the plugin cash.

Cheers,

Yes, the new confluence is sensitive.. that i realize NOW. It was indeed the Character Encoding or Collation Issues in MySQL. Thanks Jing, its resolved now.

How exactly did you solve this

They fixed the character encoding, as given in the doc at the time.  It was 4 years ago and the doc has moved to https://confluence.atlassian.com/confkb/how-to-fix-the-collation-and-character-set-of-a-mysql-database-670958160.html
