I exported a space to XML, then followed the instructions to rename that space by editing the entities.xml and exportDescriptor.properties files. I then successfully imported the space, but when I browse to that space I get Space Not Found.
One thing to watch for might be a lack of permissions for the imported space. If you use a user that is part of the "confluence-administrators" group then that user has access to all spaces, but if it is an administrator that is not part of that group then it might not be able to access a space without any permissions. Maybe you could check if this applies to your issue?
I'm part of the confluence-administrators group. I thought about that but I can't even manage the space permissions. I'm betting it's one of two things, I'll have to delete it from the database manually and then re-import, or I'll have to correct permissions manually in the database for that space.
It's not enough to have be part of the confluence-administrators group to be able to see any space.
You need to have Space Permission "View" on the space. By default, confluence-administrators have it, but the default is easy to change.
You could update your Space Permission without having "View Permission".
