Server ID is $action.sid - Fix doesn't help Edited

Hey Community!


Recently I stumbled over the server id == $action.sid bug. 

Unfortunately the following trick didn't work:


In my database the value is correct either is the property in my confluence.cfg.xml.

<property name="">BCVN-5AOV-I7QG-C4GL</property>


On startup my log shows the following:

Build Information
installationDate = null
supportEntitlementNumber = SEN-xxxx434
buildNumber = 7502
serverId = null
version = 6.5.2
home = /var/atlassian/application-data/confluence
upTime = 1 minute, 26 seconds
baseUrl =
devMode = false



Thanks in advance and looking forward for your tips!

I've reinstalled Confluence and used a backup. Now server id is visible and pages who throw an exception are working again. 

So far its solved for me. Thanks!
