Finish Deleting a Space

I had to manually delete a space from Confluence recently (cf. this article). For the most part, this process worked, however, te'hre seems to be some remnants. For instance, in the permssions page the old space still shows up (called "documents") and it still thinks that one of the user is the owner.

Hi William,

Please ensure all the queries are executed successfully. You might need to drop some table constraints if the Deletion failed because of Constraint, and add it again. (don't forget to backup the database before this)
If you're sure that every queries in that documentation have been executed successfully, you need to firstly flush all the caches, rebuild your index from scratch and Rebuild the ancestor table.

Best Regards,
