I already followed approx. 5 of the common causes and resolutions for this error, but nothing helped as of now, I am unable to create a new space. Did not notice any further error from the frontend as of now. The error I see from the Chrome developer tools is error 500 for https://<domain>/confluence/rest/create-dialog/1.0/space-blueprint/dialog/web-items with the content

"errorCode": 500,
"errorType": "UNKNOWN"

Hi Markus, 

Was this error after an upgrade? or how did the error start occurring?

If this was after an upgrade then I'd try the solution on this link

Confluence add Space fails

Not sure actually, might be that I did not try to create a space after the last upgrade. But just these days I did a migration to another server with a new domain (nginx proxied subdir install), nothing else changed.

That did indeed work, Thanks so much for pointing me to that solution!

No problem, i ran into the same issue. Happy new year!

I also thought to re-create server, and as first step, tried exporting full site. That also failed.

I can create page in existing space.

Confluence version -  6.14.1

Please confirm that you're actually connected to the database.

Do you see tables prefixed with


For example: cwd_group and cwd_directory.

Hi Edwin,
