Can I restart confluence as an confluence Admin inside the webinterface?

You'll find more information here on how your confluence service is likely to be installed & how you would restart it

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Starting+Confluence+Automatically+on+System+Startup

http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/windows-service-howto.html

if it's windows you're on, press windows key & R to get the command window & enter "services.msc" to get the services window up, find your Confluence service & restart.

But as Alex said, it can't be done via the web interface

"Starting Confluence Automatically on Sytem Startup"

that means in case your server (where confluence is hosted) needs a reboot for example...

the system will start confluence by itself so there is no need for to to take action

Just to be clear I want to uninstall the Descendent notification plugin by Adaptavist, that why I need to restart confluence


"To uninstall this plugin a Confluence restart will be required. As this plugin replaces the default Confluence notification manager with its own version, after you uninstall the plugin in the normal way you also have to restart Confluence to enable normal notifications to work."

I'm a bit confused with your link "Starting Confluence Automatically on Sytem Startup".
It's nothing I have to do, right? But you recommend it?

thanks all for your explanation :)

No, you need to restart confluence at a operating system level. There is no way to do this from the user interface.

System reboot to restart a service is bad practice. Use monit or webmin to restart a Linux service with an interface. Monit is free and configuration is only about 3 lines.
I have opened my source for Monit config here:
