Importing pages from disk, doesn't work...

Hi there,

I am currently having trouble importing HTML files from disk to Confluence. Although we are currently trial running Confluence on a Ubuntu VM (haven't migrated it to our servers yet), it shouldn't mean the importing from disk funtionality stops working.

I logged in as Sys admin, entered the directory where the HTML files are being kept on the VM (/home/ddowney/HtmlToConf), which is currently hosting Confluence, and selected Import.

So again, my question to you is, how come importing from disk essentially refuses to work and just brings me to the current spaces list page view and does nothing.

Thanks in advance

Hello Darragh,

To have a better idea about the problem, could you please let us know what kind of error message is appearing? (did you check your logs(atlassian-confluence.log) to see if there's some specific error when you try to do this import?)

If possible, please check the logs and if there's some error paste it here, so we can have a better idea from the application side what can be happening.

Also, just for test purposes, please try the following:

* Stop your Confluence.
* Then remove the content from the following folders (to recreate the bundled plugins from your instance):

a) The <confluence-home>/bundled-plugins folder
b) The <confluence-home>/plugin-cache folder
c) The <confluence-home>/plugins-osgi-cache folder
d) The <confluence-home>/plugins-temp folder

* Then start the instance again and try to reproduce the error.

Hope this helps.

Kind Regards,


Thanks for your speedy reply, however the UWC solved the problem ie. importing html files into Confluence. But I will try what you have suggested to see what is causing the problem.
