Confluence startup takes very long time afer upgrade to 6.15.2 Edited

After upgrading confluence from 5.9.3 to 6.15.9 the startup of confluence seems to be delayed or something like.

I am using offical docker image atlassian/confluence-server:6.15.9. I did the upgrade from a docker container running a custom jira installation based on centos:centos7 image. I followed the upgrade instructions according to documentation: https://confluence.atlassian.com/conf615/upgrading-confluence-manually-967338800.html

In the tomcat log one can see silence of around 7 minutes until the webapp is started:

I am unsure which logs to provide from file atlassian-confluence.log, because There are tons of warnings, hard to say what is relevant.

Hello Thiema,

I see my colleague was able to address your SPAM questions; it appears that the filter was being triggered, probably due to the logs that you sent. It happens sometimes, so thank you for letting us know about it.

For your atlassian-confluence.log, I would recommend starting up Confluence again while tailing the logs, then look for anything that says ERROR instead of INFO or WARN during startup, It should follow with a line that starts with 'caused by' to let you know the exact problem in starting up. 

When you're able to get more information from the logs about the startup, please send it along here or use something like Dropbox or Pastebin to avoid any issues with the spam filter.

Regards,

Shannon

Hello,

thanks for your reply.

logs of severity WARN and ERROR found in file atlassian-confluence.log during startup: https://pastebin.com/KKCckwPb

 

I already tried to enable the plugin com.atlassian.confluence.plugins.gadgets.spi, by setting boolean to true: like this

 

...

<entry>
<string>com.atlassian.confluence.plugins.gadgets.spi</string>
<boolean>false</boolean>
</entry>

...

 

and updating database table BANDANA manually. If I do this Confluence breaks, and will fail to start.

Hello @thiema,

Thank you for providing those logs.

It looks like you are running into this issue:

The first step is to clear your plugins cache:

  1. Shutdown Confluence
  2. Ensure the user running Confluence has full read/write privileges to the confluence-home directory.
  3. Remove the following directories(warning) This will remove the plugin cache files only and will not permanently remove any plugins. These directories will be recreated during the next Confluence startup.  However, some third-party plugins may store metadata in these directories, so we recommend creating a temporary backup of the directories.
    • <confluence-home>/bundled-plugins
    • <confluence-home>/plugins-cache
    • <confluence-home>/plugins-osgi-cache
    • <confluence-home>/plugins-temp
    • <confluence-home>/bundled-plugins_language
  4. Start Confluence

If that doesn't solve your issue, then have a look at the article for the following workarounds.

One more thing, since you mentioned you were using Docker. I know recently that the Atlassian Docker images are resetting the server.xml file upon restart. Is there a chance that you had modifications in that file, or another, such as confluence.cfg.xml? Are those changes still there, or have they been reset?

If they have, some users were discussing the same on the thread Server.xml is overwritten by Dockerfile and were able to resolve it.

I hope this helps, but let me know if you have any issues.

Regards,

Shannon
