  1. Confluence was migrated from a different server that enforces strict file permission
  2. Daily backup failed with the following error in the atlassian-confluence.log:

    2011-02-16 13:08:33,092 ERROR [http-8090-1] [atlassian.confluence.servlet.ConfluenceServletDispatcher] 
    sendError Could not execute action
     -- referer: http://<confluenceURL>/confluence/admin/backup.action | url: 
    /confluence/admin/dobackup.action | userName: admin
    java.io.IOException: Permission denied
    	at java.io.UnixFileSystem.createFileExclusively(Native Method)
    	at java.io.File.createNewFile(File.java:883)
    	at com.atlassian.core.util.FileUtils.copyFile(FileUtils.java:465)

    	at com.atlassian.confluence.importexport.actions.BackupAction.execute(BackupAction.java:79)
  3. In confluence.cfg.xml, custom folder location for daily backup is disabled:

        <property name="admin.ui.allow.daily.backup.custom.location">false</property>
  4. Manual backup works fine
  5. <Confluence Home folder>/backups belongs to the correct Confluence user and contains the correct file permission:

    drwxr-xr-x   2 confluence  staff    68 18 Feb 08:20 backups


  • Check for Confluence backup path in http://<confluence url>/admin/dailybackupadmin.action and you will notice it is set to a different folder - this, despite that custom directory location is disabled.
  • Check what is the <backupPath> value stored in the database.
select BANDANAVALUE from BANDANA where BANDANAKEY = 'atlassian.confluence.settings';


  1. Set the setting to true again in confluence.cfg.xml:

    <property name="admin.ui.allow.daily.backup.custom.location">true</property>
  2. Confluence を再起動します。
  3. Go to http://<confluence url>/admin/dailybackupadmin.action and edit the setting. Change the location to what it should be.
