Restore Passwords To Recover Admin User Rights Does Not Work

So I have been hustling with this for hours now. But I still can't login to confluence.
I bumped into this problem for a month ago and the documentation worked fine then, but now. I can't login.

I have followed every step in this manual,

A new admin is created and active ( T )
A new group is running
and a membership is connected to my admin user (id 1212121)

My internal directory is set to index 0 and its active ( T )

Have i missed something? or is it another problem?

I have done this at least 10 times. and every time it doesn't work I delete everything I created and start over.

Any tips on whats wrong? smile

Im using confluence 5.1

Hello Felipe,

I believe it's better to restore the password for the old admin user instead of creating a new one with that documentation.

I know that you tried 10 times, but, try the following:

select, u.user_name, from cwd_user u
join cwd_membership m on join cwd_group g on join cwd_directory d on
where g.group_name = 'confluence-administrators' and d.directory_name='Confluence Internal Directory';
update cwd_user set credential =
where id=<id from Stage 1>;
Password: admin

Don't forget to restart the service after performing the second step
