Known Problems and Solutions

Server/Data Center

Unable to download .zip file, if file size is more than ~1 GB


Following values were added to nginx and it was restarted to solve the issue:

Timeout changes for download issue:
proxy_connect_timeout 300;
proxy_send_timeout 300;
proxy_read_timeout 300;
send_timeout 300;
proxy_max_temp_file_size 5120m;
Server/Data CenterExport | 'Exporting...' Stuck In The Same State And Logs Showing Low Disk SpaceThe plugin cannot reliably detect "Low disk space" in the directory beforehand. We need to make sure there is sufficient space in the confluence home.

The export operation is a "fire and forget" operation. Once fired, it there is no way to stop it.

The export operation involves a lot of intermediate steps - first the directory is created, then the files are dumped, and then the zip file is created out of the directory and the original directory is deleted. All these happen in sequence.
Server/Data CenterIf the migration happened with one user (i.e. ghost1) and on cloud if user is logged in with different user(i.e. ghost2) then he may face permission issues to check the contents on Cloud.
  1. Page level edit icons will not be displayed.
  2. EXCs won't have edit icon.
Would be to go to space settings > permission and edit individual permission to see the edit icons at page, EXC level.
