How do I make a space private

We are using Confluence 5.3.1.   I have created a space.  Now I want to make that space private.  How do I change the space?   I do not mean, btw, that I just want to restrict view and edit on the home page.

A private space is simply one where users are not granted view access. To make it private only grant yourself view access.

I seem to remember in earlier version when you created a space you could declare the space "private".   From what I see in this documentation, you just control the View/Edit rights of Groups/Individuals.   Am I correct?

I don't remember seeing an option to mark a space as private. But yes, you can control the permissions by adding/removing individuals/groups.

When a new space is first created a tick box below the 'space name' and 'space key' fields asks if you wish to make the space private.
