Error while Exporting the Confluence Space.

HI Team,

I am facing one issue while exporting the content of the space into a XML file. I need to export all the contents of the space into a xml backup. But when I try to do so, it works fine for some time and when coming to 99% completion it throws an Exception called: "There was an error in the export. Please check your log files. :Hibernate lazy instantiation problem"

Can anyone knows this or had face this earlier, please help.

As suggested, you might want to check further stack trace inside the atlassian-confluence.log. Here's how to find it

Once you identified the most likely cause from the log, maybe it's worth to check our KB articles at

Also, it's worth to mention that if you're not changing databases, you can use our Production backup strategy instead:
