Global Header error on default theme after upgrade

Just upgraded to Confluence 5 and we are getting the error as stated here:

However I do not have descriptors table in the database. I do have a dbo.DESCRIPTOR. Would this be the same?

Hello Evan,

Do you have a decorators table? I think the KB is referencing that table rather than the descriptors table.

Sorry, I have dbo.DECORATOR . A typo in my first post. I have made a copy of it but wanted to be sure before I delete it. I am running on an SQL 2008 R2 Instance.


It sounds like you have the right of things. Making a backup of the table before you truncate it is a great idea. The dbo.DECORATOR is the table you are interested in clearing. Please let us know if that works for you.

I was able to resolve the issue by submitting the command

truncate table dbo.DECORATOR;

This is in SQL 2008 R2. Thanks for the help!
