Create space default home page 404/page not found


We run Confluence 3.4.9 (I know, we should, but...) when we create a new space the default home page the process takes you too is /SPACE/Home - However, this results in a 404 as it doesn't exist. What does exist however is /SPACE/Index

I cannot find a way for either 'Home' to be created, or for 'Index' to become the default page for a new space. Any help would be greatfully appreciated.

I got this problem too. The space was not viewable in the spacelist.

- Flush the cache (via Administration)
- Create the space again

That helps for us.

We're using Confluence 3.5

ENOWORK. Sadly. But thanks.

Does the log file reveal any useful info (warnings/errors) for this behaviour?

I just upgraded to 4.2.8 and I am seeing the same thing.

Here is the log extract:

2012-07-17 08:58:58,775 INFO [main] [com.atlassian.confluence.lifecycle] init Confluence is ready to serve
2012-07-17 09:00:25,926 ERROR [http-8090-3] [atlassian.confluence.servlet.ConfluenceServletDispatcher] serviceAction There is no Action mapped for namespace /confluence/spaces and action name createspace
-- referer: http://navtech-server:8090/spaces/createspace-start.action | url: /confluence/spaces/createspace.action | userName: galbraj1

Isn't there anyone that can answer this? The team is getting quite restless not being able to create spaces. Of course, flushing the cache did not help.
