  1. When saving pages, users see the following message: "An error occurred while trying to save the requested page."
  2. Oracle database is being used to back Confluence.

The following appears in the atlassian-confluence.log:

2011-09-14 11:16:00,690 ERROR [TP-Processor14] [confluence.pages.actions.AbstractEditPageAction] doSaveEditPageBean An error occured while storing the requested page!

The Oracle database has run out of space. The database has failed to allocate an extent of the required number of blocks for LOB segment in the tablespace indicated.


Your database administrator will need to add or extend a datafile to the tablespace relevant to Confluence.
