When attempting to create a new page and save it, the page does not save and redirects to a "Page Not Found" error. A draft of the page is saved and can be accessed, but the page itself will not save. 

The following appears in the atlassian-confluence.log:

  • MySQL database


MySQL server is configured to have NO_AUTO_VALUE_ON_ZERO mode enabled. This particular SQL mode handles the AUTO_INCREMENT columns, which generate the next sequence number automatically. When NO_AUTO_VALUE_ON_ZERO mode is enabled, MySQL will only generate NULL as the next sequence number. This results in the inability for the AONotification table in the Confluence database to auto-increment the ID column by 1.


  1. Stop Confluence.
  2. Stop MySQL.
  3. Edit the my.cnf file (often named my.ini on Windows operating systems or my.cnf on UNIX operating systems) in your MySQL server.
  4. Remove NO_AUTO VALUE_ON_ZERO from sql_mode.  Either delete the entire line or just delete the value if you have other parameters in sql_mode. Example: 

    // delete this line
    sql_mode = NO_AUTO_VALUE_ON_ZERO
  5. Start MySQL.
  6. Start Confluence.
