What to do when I get a system Error trying to access Confluence?

I installed the Windows Install version. There seems to be a Confluence service running.

If I open a browser and type in http://localhost:8090/confluence, I get a page saying "system error. A system error has occurred — our apologies! ". Your page suggests I look at your knowledge base and FAQs, but there does not seem to be any relevant entries.

This is an evaluation. Please advise at your earliest convenience.

Hi Dan,

Could you have a look in your <Confluence Home>/logs directory for atlassian-confluence.log and post the contents of that file here? There should be something in that file that gives an indication as to why Confluence is throwing an error.

Thanks,

Andrew.

Yes, please have a look at the log for any errors - you can upload the log here for someone to look at, if you are unsure. Details on where to find the logs can be found in our documentation - http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Working+with+Confluence+Logs
