Contacting Confluence Administrators

If you receive an error message from Confluence, the error page may offer you a link to click in order to contact the administrators of the Confluence site.

When you click the link to contact the Confluence administrators, you will see an administrator contact page with the title 'Contact Site Administrators'. By default, the administrator contact page looks like the screenshot below.

The screen may look different

In certain configurations of Confluence, you will not be able to use the form shown in the screenshot above. Instead, you will see a message telling you about one of the following conditions:

  • If your Confluence administrator has not configured a mail server for Confluence, this means that Confluence will not be able to send an email message to the administrators.
  • If none of the Confluence administrators has an email address, Confluence will not be able to send an email message to them.
  • If there are no Confluence administrators defined to Confluence, Confluence will not be able to send an email message to them.
  • The Confluence administrator can disable the form and specify a different message to be displayed on the above screen instead of the default message and form. See the administrator's guide.

Notes

You can also access this contact form using the following URL. Replace 'yoursite.com/wiki' with the correct path for your Confluence instance.

yoursite.com/wiki/contactadministrators.action
