When Confluence initiates the upgrade process, errors occur and the following appears in the atlassian-confluence.log.  These errors may also appear when trying to save a page:

ERROR [main] [hibernate.tool.hbm2ddl.SchemaUpdate] execute The table '#sql-73a5_5' is full
ERROR [main] [hibernate.tool.hbm2ddl.SchemaUpdate] execute could not complete schema update
java.sql.SQLException: The table '#sql-73a5_5' is full
	at com.mysql.jdbc.SQLError.createSQLException(SQLError.java:1072)
	at com.mysql.jdbc.MysqlIO.checkErrorPacket(MysqlIO.java:3563)


MySQL can't alter the table since it specifies a certain amount of space for each table and has reached its maximum size. It usually occurs in Innodb storage format, where it's configured in my.cnf or my.ini.


  1. Stop MySQL
  2. Backup my.cnf file
  3. Remove the particular line if it's inside the file

  4. Replace the previous line with the following, if the previous configuration did not exist put the following line under [mysqld]

    innodb_data_file_path = ibdata1:10M:autoextend
  5. Restart MySQL
