I never set a "sysadmin" password - how do I login

Never set a "sysadmin" password and can't login (currently logge in as the Admin user, but not sys-admin or conf-admin so I can't delete spaces)

I don't ever remember setting a "sysadmin" password and my other Confluence/Atlassian passwords don't work here.

Any ideas?

Uhm .... in my confluence installations, there only is the "admin" user plus those I created. Do you maybe mean the tomcat-admin or the database admin ? Where is the installation coming from, is it a "standalone" one?

Hello Kay,

You can try to use the following procedure to identify your admin and to login again to Confluence:

Hope this helps.

Kind Regards,
