Error rendering macro 'viewport-redirect'

Only pages and blog posts are supported as redirect target.

  1. Navigate to ConfluenceInstallationDirectory/conf
  2. Edit server.xml
  3. Add these lines in between the <Context> tags:

    <Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.RemoteAddrValve" deny=""/> 

    Just replace the IP address accordingly. Should look something like this:

    <Context path="/c512" docBase="../confluence" debug="0" reloadable="false" useHttpOnly="true">
                        <!-- Logger is deprecated in Tomcat 5.5. Logging configuration for Confluence is specified in confluence/WEB-INF/classes/ -->
                        <Manager pathname="" />
                         <Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.RemoteAddrValve" deny=""/> 
  4. Restart Confluence
