Disable crowd integration manually

I've just upgraded to latest confluence version (6.15.2) and do not want it to use crowd server (not running) any more. This instruction assume I have access to web interface to disable crowd, but I don't. I canot log in and canot reset password with error in log:

ERROR [http-nio-8090-exec-5] [crowd.manager.application.ApplicationServiceGeneric] authenticateUser Directory 'Crowd' is not functional during authentication of 'myusername'. Skipped.

How can I disable crowd integration with just access to shell (files) and DB?

Hey Eugene,

check out

its for JIRA, but should be the same (or at least very similar) for Confluence.

select * from cwd_directory;

find your crowd directory and set inactive to 1



Thank you. This works for me!

Interesting I am on a server where Id of the internal directory is not 1. 

Also setting active = 0
