confluence 5.2.5 CacheManager has been shut down

While running the Setup Wizard, during the configure database step, I repeatedly run into this error;

Caused by: java.lang.IllegalStateException: The CacheManager has been shut down. It can no longer be used.
at net.sf.ehcache.CacheManager.checkStatus(
at net.sf.ehcache.CacheManager.getCache(

How can I get passed this. The tables were created, so I am prompted to overwrite, but I always run into this error.

Dropping and recreating the database and rerunning the Setup Wizard created a succussful install.

Hi Don,

There's a bug in Confluence that refer to this message, but it should be fixed in your version and it doesn't seem to cause problems or functionality loss. Are you able to install Confluence or it fails during the setup? Do you see other error messages in your log?


Confluence fails to complete the Setup Wizard. It gats stuck on the configure database step (setupstandarddb.action) even though it has created the tables. I can't complete the install, perhaps if I skipped this step and started at the next step, wouold you know what my URL would for the next step.
