Backed up 3.5.9 reinstalled, using MySQL as my database, says restored properly, accessing ANY of my spaces shows page not found errors

I am using Confluence 3.5.9 on my internal site. Unfortunately, the person who installed it used the internal database. In order to reinstall it to use a MySQL database, I followed your support article:

http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONF35/Migrate+to+Another+Database

The steps I followed:

1. Backed up my current 3.5.9 site (all spaces) to my server

2. Took down the service.

3. Reinstalled in a new directory on my server

4. Set up to use MySQL as my database

5. Restored my backup to my new installation, restore said it worked fine

Now, when I start my new site, the home page, shows all my spaces, yet clicking on ANY of my spaces restored from my 3.5.9 backup shows the following:

Page Not Found The page you were trying to reach could not be found. This could be because:

The page does not exist.

The page exists, but you do not have permission to view it.

This is maddening. Luckily for me, I still have my previous site up and running and I only installed this to point to a different port on my server.

I cannot move forward because I cannot restore JUST my spaces as I'm told the space already exists. I cannot delete the spaces and restore because I can't access them because I see nothing but page not found messages.

What am I supposed to do?

Check your user settings - it sounds like Confluence doesn't think you have any permissions.
