I dont find atlassian-confluence.log anywhere on my machine.

I have confluence 4.1 on a linux box. I read on some of your blogs that UWC is not compatable with Confluence 4.1, I was getting the same error while conveting the pages.

Hence i set up a confluence server 3.5.7 evalution version on a windows desktop

Can you please help me in resolving this issue

The UWC developer is on our team - contact us directly for support, if you wish.

Can get you migrated for sure and a MASSIVE UPGRADE from tikiwiki, so definitely worth the effort to do it!
