migration errror

Database has been setup, error appeared when pressing submit on creating a new administrator account for a blank setup.


Getting the same error. Aa part of migrating confluence 5.10.0 to 6.2.3 in linux.


when we mapped the fresh installed confluence instance to the restored DB, first it asked to overwrite the tables, we proceed. and now in next step, it is not allowing us to create admin user and getting the same error as mentioned above. We cant go with fresh DB now as its not handled by us. How we can troubleshoot the issue.

You have not told us what the error is, or what the database is.

My best guess is that the database is not set up correctly for the user you are using for access.

Your best bet would be to drop all the current tables, fix the config of the database and start again clean.
