To delete a space, I performed the below steps (in my local machine)
Browse->Space Admin->Delete Space
Delete operation started, since the space was very big it took more than hours I anticipated, so I closed the browser.
On next working day, I again followed the same steps to delete the space (this time from a remote machine). deletion started again, but after few hours a 'delete space failed' message appeared in browser window.
Now I have following queries (as I am new to confluence):
1) Is delete operation happens in background, even if I close the browser window?
2) althogh I am not able to find the space in wiki now, not even in database. I am not sure, it's deleted successfully or not?
3) I've also tried to delete space using curl:
curl -v -S -u USERNAME:PASSWORD -X DELETE http://SERVERNAME/confluence/rest/api/space/SPACEKEY
but that results into following error:
HTTP Status 403: Access to the specified resource has been forbidden.
1) Yes, it will continue
2) If you can't find the space, it's been deleted. The process deletes the "header" last, and the header is the bit that tells Confluence that there is a space there.
I've seen this a couple of times on large space deletes, I've never worked out why the error is thrown even though the process completes ok.
