I can’t edit the space, even though I’m the site-admin

Hi, I am a new user of the cloud version of confluence (free). When I registered, the first space was created. Now I can’t control it, because I am not the administrator of this space, although I am the site administrator. How do I become an administrator of this space?

I am afraid it is not possible to manage your space permissions with your current plan, unless you move to the "Standard plan". In fact, as said in the following quote, and as you can see in the Screenshot you provided, you do not have admin permissions on this space (being a site admin does not always mean you are a space admin).

Space and page permissions

Assign, revoke, and modify space or page permissions to individual users, groups, or anonymous users. The Free plan does not allow permission settings for spaces or pages.

See Plans and pricing

I hope this will help.
