Restoring Lost Confluence Pages


It seems over the weekend that a few of our Confluence spaces and/or pages disappeared. Is there an easy way to search and restore these pages rather than restoring a whole backup of Confluence? I checked the Atlassian documentation and didn't find it very helpful, any suggestions?

Each space has a trash can in the space admin. Have you checked there?

You also need to work out how they got deleted, and think about preventing that in the long run.

A lot of times people delete a parent page and forget that the child pages get moved to the base level of the Confluence space, and are therefore no longer visible in the page tree. To find them, you can click Browse, Pages, and then look at the tree view.

That's another good thought Stephen.

We lost the space, but we recovered it. thanks!

We are using Confluence version 5.5.3
