I just installed confluence, there's no create button in confluence header

What do I need to do to be able to create anything?

Have you created a space to work in yet?  Do you have add/edit permissions in at least one space?

No, that's the problem, there is no create button to allow me to create a space! I'm the (newbie) admin, so I assume I have all the permissions needed.

Admin rights don't necessarily mean you have Space rights.  But you should have "create space" at least.

Do you have anything under the "spaces" menu?

Make sure your license is valid.
(Buttons will not show if license has expired or is not valid)

To view your Confluence license:

  1. Go to  > General Configuration.
  2. Choose License Details in the left-hand panel.
