Unable to install plugins using MS SQL due to transaction log exceptions

Still need help?

When attempting to install Confluence plugins while using MS SQL you may receive this error in atlassian-confluence.log:

Caused by: java.sql.SQLException: The transaction log for database  'confluence' is full. To find out why space in the log cannot be reused, see  the log_reuse_wait_desc column in sys.databases


The transaction log is set at a specific size and is unable to expand as needed.


Setting the transaction log to have an auto-growth option instead of 'NONE' should resolve the issue. You may also need to set a larger initial size.  Please see this support article from Microsoft for more information on tweaking this setting.
