I updated local installation of confluence to add Crowd SSO. I've now lost all Admin privileges. I tried to disable SSO but that didn't even work. Since this is a production environment that people use, I need a solution that doesn't require a lot of downtime.
I figured out the problem. There appears to be an issue with 5.9.6. The crowd.properties file doesn't take precedence over the GUI configuration. So if you need to change this like I did because I didn't remember the crowd application password you need to update it in the gui in Crowd and Confluence first.
If you can't authenticate with Crowd, the internal directory won't work either. So I stopped Confluence, Then I got the id of the crowd directory from the DB using this query
Then I updated and verified that I disabled the Crowd directory using the following queries.
select id, directory_name, active from cwd_directory where id = 18087937
update cwd_directory set active = 'F' where id = 18087937
After that I started Crowd and was able to use my local directory admin account to log in and reconfigure the Crowd authentication.
