Hi Bill,

This is actually a known issue and we have a KB for that.

The workaround would be:

  1. Backup Confluence
  2. Shutdown Confluence
  3. Execute this SQL query
    1
    DELETEFROMCONFVERSION;
  4. Restart Confluence

I hope this helps!

Rodrigo

Thanks Rodrigo.

In my case that did not seem to help and since my maintenance window was almost over, I had to fall back to confluence 5.1.
