Hello Kathy,

Would you please confirm that the backup was not created under <confluence-home-directory>/backups?

In case you are not sure where the <confluence-home-directory> is located, please refer to this documentation: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Confluence+Home+and+other+important+directories

If the backup is not there indeed, please try to tail -f the <confluence-home-directory>/logs/atlassian-confluence.log file and generate the backup again to see if there's any error showing in the logs.

If you are hosting Confluence on a Windows environment, try to replicate the problem and check the latest log entries, since tail is not available.

 

I hope it helps,

Eduardo

Thanks Eduardo for your input. I checked my log and is states:

Hi Kathy, 

Based into your logs I believe we are facing this bug: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-32094 which was fixed on version 5.4.3, however you've mentioned your Confluence version is 5.5.6, but you Build number is 4517 which looks a old version from Confluence. 

So, since the information are divergent, I recommend you to raise a ticket with Atlassian to further investigate this case. 

 

Regards, 

Renato Rudnicki
