after upgrading to Confluence 5.1.1 (from 4.x) the new space sidebar is empty on my installation. In order to access the space administration I have to switch from default theme to documentation theme.
A similar problem has been reported in https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-28566
Unfortunately, that ticket's resolution has not been published.
Any help would be appreciated.
The support case was not resolved and timed out with no response from the customer. I've added a comment there for a solution that I've found has worked for me many times when the new theme is misbehaving:
Follow the steps there and let me know if your sidebar returns!
Hope that helps!
I did the following:
No success so far. The sidebar is still empty.
I even enabled safe mode so that all user-installed plugins were disabled.
What else is there to check?
I've had the same symptoms after updating to 6.3.1. In addition to the empty sidebar, I couldn't see any spaces in the drop down menu.
Turned out, not all files in the installation directory were owned by the confluence user. The solutions in our case was
sudo chown -R confluence /opt/confluence
Maybe it helps someone else.
