Is it possible to return the deleted space?

The Knowledge base space was accidentally deleted. Can you get it back from your server backup, please?

Hi @Anton ,

You may need to restore the complete server xml backup to a new instance (or your dev instance) ---> Export the space backup in xml format --> import it in your production. Kindly be informed that 

1. Space ID and Page IDs of the space will be different after the space import in production instance.

2. Confluence attachment hierarchy is different from JIRA

3. After restoring the complete xml backup in dev instance, make a note of space id as this will be important for copying attachments or you can 

find the directory where attachments for a particular space are stored, go to <confluence url>/admin/findspaceattachments.jsp and enter a space key.

4. Import the space into production using the xml backup.

Moving attachments will be a challenge if you have many pages/attachments. 

@Niranjan Thank you, I'll try it now!

@Anton Please be sure that you restore the complete server xml backup to a new/DEV instance and NOT TO YOUR PROD instance. Plan for change and have necessary backout plans. And if your confluence is a  CLoud instance , I would recommend to connect with Atlassian. 

 Thank you!
