Crowd does not start up properly after undergo a database migration task. The following error appeared on the login page:

An error occurred when querying the database <Table 'crowd.REMOTEGROUP' doesn't exist>

The following appears in the atlassian-crowd.log

Crowd does not have the table crowd.REMOTEGROUP since Crowd 2.0.


It seems like Crowd is trying to perform an upgrade task. It assumes that this is an upgrade process from a really old version of Crowd where the table crowd.REMOTEGROUP still exists.



  1. Shut down Crowd
  2. Go to Crowd_Home_Directory
  3. Locate crowd.cfg.xml
  4. Try to modify the following lines:


    Change the build number to your current version's build number. Cross reference from this documentation: Crowd Build and Version Numbers Reference

  5. For example, change the above line to look like the following if the Crowd's version is Crowd 2.8.0:

  6. Restart Crowd and check if the issue persist.
