Unable to export users from database

hello! I'm following the instructions located at

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONFKB/How+to+Export+User+Data+to+CSV+in+Confluence

but I continue to receive this error

"mysql> select id, user_name, lower_first_name, lower_last_name into outfile '/tmp/confusers.csv' FIELDS TERMINATED BY ',' OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY '"' LINES TERMINATED BY '\n' from cwd_user;

ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'confluenceuser'@'localhost' (using password: YES)"

I'm unsure of where to go from here.

Hi Shane,

From the error, it seem that confluenceuser does not have enough permission to select in the database. Why don't you try granting the permission of the database to confluenceuser'@'localhost.

GRANT ALL ON <databaseName>.* TO 'confluenceuser'@'localhost';

Kind Regards,

Jing Hwa


Doesn't appear to have worked?

mysql> GRANT ALL ON confluencedb.* TO 'confluenceuser'@'localhost';

Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

mysql> select id, user_name, lower_first_name, lower_last_name into outfile '/tmp/confusers.csv' FIELDS TERMINATED BY ',' OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY '"' LINES TERMINATED BY '\n' from cwd_user;

ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'confluenceuser'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
