My server is reporting database configurations which are not in line with reality

When I start Confluence-7.2.0, and visit its' page, the server reports;

Database: The database collation 'C' is not supported by Confluence. We recommend utf-8. On Windows you can also use the Windows-1252 collation for your locale.


But when I enter my psql server to review my database the below is reported;

| Encoding | Collate             | Ctype            |

| UTF8        | en_GB.UTF-8    | en_GB.UTF-8 |


This issue was initiated when an upgrade was cancelled, which understandably left the data out-of-sync.

@admin_admin I believe you hit this bug


Can you make sure the upgrade complete successfully first and try again?

That is the resolution I chose to make for this, and the server started without errors, however it resulted in a blank login page.

This problem has been moved to the bottom of my stack for now.
