Subject [jira] [Created] (INFRA-8256) CWIKI PDF exports are suddenly broken
Date Fri, 29 Aug 2014 00:11:08 GMT
Cassandra Targett created INFRA-8256:

             Summary: CWIKI PDF exports are suddenly broken
                 Key: INFRA-8256
             Project: Infrastructure
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Confluence
            Reporter: Cassandra Targett

For the Apache Solr Reference Guide, we use Confluence's PDF export functionality to create
a guide for each new release of Solr.

When trying to do a PDF export for our upcoming release, I modified the CSS a bit to try to
solve a formatting issue and after the change, I started getting errors such as "Failed during
PDF export. Exception message - Failed to create output file during PDF export." In some cases
it names a page but it is inconsistent.

According to Atlassian's documentation (,
this can happen with invalid CSS. I removed additions I made to the CSS but the errors still
occur each time we try to generate a PDF.

The PDF is generated from
and we choose the "Custom Export" and deselect the first section of pages named "Internal*".

It may be that Confluence is under a high load and needs to be restarted...but not sure what's
happening. Our release for the Solr Reference Guide is held up until we can get a new PDF.
