Cannot import Confluence 4.2 DOC space

Hello!

I need to import the Confluence 4.2 DOC space XML export to our site and am failing, leaving the imported space in a broken state. I need to remove it with command line interface tools.

I even set all user plugins to safe mode - same situation.

We run Confluence 4.2.12 on Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit standalone. Before we had it under Windows, same Confluence version, and import went well.

Thank you.

Confluence OnDemand is now version 5.0-OD-27, you'll need an export from the same version to be able to import Confleunce spaces. However, there's a workaround that might work, but it needs a bit of manual work to edit the space XML: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Changing+the+version+of+a+space+backup
