I added erroneous HTML to the Custom HTML section in Confluence Administration (shame on me) and now I can't rectify it, because I'm locked out.
Is there a possibility to remove all / the specific custom HTML directly from the confluence installation?

I tried that, but the bug I introduced, resulted in an empty browser window. :) I forgot an </script> tag and the whole page body was considered as part of the script.
Finally, I found someone in our company with knowledge of mySQL and we removed the faulty script via an SQL update.
Now, one question came up to me: Shouldn't the editor of Custom HTML check for such simple errors that have such big consequences?
Happily enough it was our staging instance of confluence I messed up. :) But nevertheless, it gave me some embarassment.
I agree, that user can't exspect a fully-featured HTML editor in Confluence, but I also think that some essential checks to avoid lock-out problems wouldn't be just convenient but necessary.
Just wanted to add my agreement that it is not acceptable that the 'Custom HTML' editor seems to have no checks whatsoever on the code entered. It does not have to be a full HTML-syntax checker, but the fact that a missing </script> tag can render your Confluence instance irretrievably hosed, has been a long-standing problem from Confluence 2 through Confluence 5.
A Restore to Default button would also be nice ... for those of us who can see the editor, but can't edit the text boxes.
Sorry, Abilene. It's too long ago, we couldn't reconstruct the SQL statement.
My colleague who has mySQL knowledge told me that he
Hope that gives you a hint.
