Hi Denys,


Usually those NullPointers are generic, and doesn't give a full picture of the problem. May I ask you, if you can reach Confluence's database through Confluence's box?

To rule out a problem with the plugins during the startup, can you please do the following steps to clean the plugin cache?

* Shutdown Confluence
Delete the content from the following folders:
* <confluence-home>/plugin-cache
* <confluence-home>/plugins-osgi-cache
* <confluence-home>/plugins-temp
* <confluence-home>/bundled-plugins
* <confluence-home>/bundled-plugins_language
* Startup Confluence

I hope this helps.

Cheers,

WZ

Unfortunatly, the problem still present.

William,

It was related with wrong DBHOSTNAME in confluence.cfg.xml

Thanks for the idea about database.

With BR,

Denys.

The first folder mentioned is named plugins-cache (not plugin-cache!)

Thank you for showing me I wasn't alone. For me it was:

  • Atlassian has upgraded the web.xml file in Confluence 5.4 (that's right, that's their job ;))
  • I had applied changes to this file to implement HTTPS,
  • I had incorrectly overwritten their changes.

I've reset the file and restarted, it works. Hope it'll help someone.
