# Add Space Redirects to an Incorrect URL (Confluence 4.2.3 and above)

#### Still need help?

The Atlassian Community is here for you.

## Symptoms

After changing the Confluence URL, or the Confluence context path, you are unable to add a space (it keeps redirecting to the old URL).

This affects only Add Space with this popup (Confluence 4.2.3 and above):

After clicking add, you will be redirected to the old URL, which does not exist, hence the space is not created.

## Diagnosis

First of all, check if the Server Base URL set in Confluence Admin >> General Configuration is correct (set to the URL you use to access Confluence). If it is correct, then proceed to the Resolution below.

## Cause

The plugin responsible for that Add Space popup is caching the old Server Base URL.

## Resolution

1. Shutdown Confluence
2. Remove the following folders from your Confluence Home Directory
1. bundled-plugins
2. plugins-osgi-cache
3. plugins-cache
4. plugins-temp
3. Startup Confluence again (the plugin cache will be rebuilt upon startup)
