Purpose

To clear the Confluence plugins cache when it gets out of sync or corrupted.

Solution

  1. Shutdown Confluence
  2. Ensure the user running Confluence has full read/write privileges to the confluence-home directory.
  3. Remove the following directories
    (warning) This will remove the plugin cache files only and will not permanently remove any plugins. These directories will be recreated during the next Confluence startup.  However, some third-party plugins may store metadata in these directories, so we recommend creating a temporary backup of the directories.
    • <confluence-home>/bundled-plugins
    • <confluence-home>/plugins-cache
    • <confluence-home>/plugins-osgi-cache
    • <confluence-home>/plugins-temp
    • <confluence-home>/bundled-plugins_language
  4. Start Confluence
