Hello Patrick,

Can you please check the logs under <confluence-home-directory>/logs? The file is called atlassian-confluence.log

In case you are not sure where the <confluence-home-directory> is located, please refer to this documentation:


This should tell us more about the error so we can try to help you.

Ok, what does the log say?

Can you also check your base URL?

If the Base URL you have is different from the one you are using to access your Confluence then the add on will indeed fail to be installed.

If the base URL is also correct then let us know your JAVA and Confluence version.

information Don't forget about the atlassian-confluence.log file smile.

Thanks and Regards,

Problem solved, some parameters in mySql were not properly configured.

Thanks Patrick. Please feel free to mark this question as resolved. Cheers, Rodrigo
