Directories: locked myself out

Hi, I did an upgrade our of confluence instance (3.1.1) to 3.5.7 on a test environment. I have added our LDAP configuration again after the update.

All went well until I changed the order of the directories used for authentication. I moved the LDAP above the internal directory and now I am unable to log in anymore. Apparently, something was still wrong in the LDAP config :D

Can I change the sequence of the directories somewhere in a configuration file? I did some searches on the system but cannot find anything related.

Yep, you can change it in the database.

The table is cwd_app_dir_mapping

You want to change the list_index field

The other thing you can do is disable the LDAP directory (in the table cwd_directory) and then it will only use the internal Confluence directory

Changing the sequence in the cwd_app_dir_mapping table and restarting Confluence did the trick. Thank you for that quick answer!
