Can't enable 'Default section provider for content name search' in Confluence System add-ons

I can't enable 'Default section provider for content name search' in Confluence System add-ons (Confluence 5.2.5)

Does anyone know of a reason why any System add-on macro can't be enabled?

Any help welcome...

Atlassian provided this solution that worked for me:

  1. Shutdown Confluence
  2. Make a backup of the database
  3. Remove The following folders:
    • <confluence-home>/bundled-plugins folder
    • <confluence-home>/plugin-cache folder
    • <confluence-home>/plugins-osgi-cache folder
    • <confluence-home>/plugins-temp folder
  1. Perform a Select from BANDANA to see the state of plugins:
select BANDANAVALUE from BANDANA where BANDANAKEY = 'plugin.manager.state.Map';
  1. Update this to '</map>':
UPDATE BANDANA SET BANDANAVALUE='<map/>' WHERE BANDANAKEY='plugin.manager.state.Map';
  1. This will Enable All plugin. (if you need any of these plugins to be disabled, please disable them later)
  2. Restart Confluence

Thanks for this solution!

Thank for this solution, What is problem ?

Bernardo, if Quick Searches but not regular searches fail, you will get warnings in the log about the system plugin being disabled and a Hercules scan will send you to Quick Navigation Search (also known as Quick Search) Returns No Page Results telling you to enable the plugin.  Of course, you can't enable it hence the solution revealed by Jennifer.

Jennifer, is BANDANAVALUE supposed to be 'map/' or '/map'?  I haven't got around to trying to fix it yet since it did not seem important enough to take the whole system down just for that.  I'll wait for the next upgrade cycle.
