How to edit the system error message in Confluence

Yes, i mean this message:

System Error

A system error has occurred — our apologies!

For immediate troubleshooting, consult our knowledge base for a solution.

If you would like to receive support from Atlassian's support team, ask your Confluence administrator to create a support issue on Atlassian's support system with the following information:

a description of your problem and what you were doing at the time it occurred

a copy of the error and system information found below

a copy of the application logs (if possible).

Your Confluence administrator can use the support request form to create a support ticket which will include this information.

We will respond as promptly as possible.
Thank you!

Hi Jorge,

That message can be customized by editing the <Confluence Install>\confluence\500page.jsp file, just make sure to backup the file before making the changed.

Hope that this helps.

Thanks and Regards,
