Users are not able to log in to Confluence but are able to sign up for a new Confluence account.


User management was configured for LDAP with authentication only or with authentication in a previous version. The configuration files are no longer in place after the upgrade.


Copy both the osuser.xml and atlassian-user.xml file from the previous version of Confluence over to the later version of Confluence.
