Detected tables with non-default collation. But which one it is?

Hello guys,

confluence was running fine on our server till I started the update to 5.2.5 today. Since then it doesn t start anymore, but greets me with with an error page, telling that one of the tables use non-default collation. I went forth and looked for it in phpmyadmin, but all tables I can see are utf8_bin and also all the fields in the tables are formated correctly.

Since the logs do not give further information, maybe somebody has an idea to track this down?


kind regards,

Well I actually answered this myself. It was not a collation problem at all. For some reason one of my tables did have different structure compared to a new Confluence installation. So I dumped the database from a new installation, structure only. Imported it and put my data in, everything was fine again.

Quite sad actually!

Same problem here today.

Did you find any clues ?
