Hi @Nick Vazirianis ,

Welcome to the community. 

I hope you follow the next KB


If I were you, I move the old confluence.cfg.xml into confluence.cfg.xml.bk, start from fresh configuration from UI with connecting into existing DB. Note: if you do new install, please, recreate database. 

Thanks @Gonchik Tsymzhitov for your reply I was about to try what you said but then I saw a post somewhere to change the log_bin_trust to on, so I tried that  and it seemed to fix it, later I will put it back to off.


So I just did this 


mysql> SET GLOBAL log_bin_trust_function_creators = 1
-> ;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

and to check it took effect

mysql> show variables like '%log_bin_trust_function_creators%';
| Variable_name | Value |
| log_bin_trust_function_creators | ON |
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

@Nick Vazirianis how that variable related to the setup? do you multi-master RDBMS setup?

I'm not sure why that variable was being used. I don't think I had setup multi-master RDBMS but maybe there was something strange in my mysql config.

Do you have 1 instance of mysql ? or do you use replication master-slave, master-master ?

I only have just 1 instance of mysql  and no replication
