Site isn't loading and I can't delete it



I have here a litte Problem with one Page

I know it should be the "|" the Problem in the Titel but how can I edit the Titel or can delete this side? (All in my Confluence is fine, only this one Page have a issue).


Thanks for your help,

Kind regarts,

Fichtner L.

It is strange that the bar "|" in your page title is causing an issue - the URL in your screen shot deals with the bar differently from mine:

Out of curiosity, what version of Confluence are you using?

More to the point, this page should be able to help with a variety of workarounds: Editing or Deleting a Page That Won't Render

Thanks for your response.

I'm using Atlassian Confluence 6.4.2. Can you tell me where I can find the page ID?

If the page renders at all you can go to the three dots at the top right and choose nearly any of the options and the page ID will appear in the URL. However, I understand the page will not render to display the dots so you will have to query the database:


When I ran it I used the page title as it is rendered on the page rather than as it appears in the URL, and I got the page ID back, for example:

SELECT CONTENTID FROM content WHERE TITLE = 'Welcome to Confluence' AND VERSION = '1';

It looks like you may not need the page ID as the article mentions this workaround using the page title:

Alternatively, if you don't know the page ID, you can access the page for editing using an URL like:
