After restating, the Confluence Applinks plugin is disabled. Trying to re-enable it fails. Logs contain messages like:

2009-12-02 15:09:08,508 INFO [http-8081-6] [admin.actions.plugins.ManagePluginsAction] logPluginAction User 'admin' enable plugin key: com.atlassian.applinks.confluence

The plugin's state is invalid.


  1. Check out the database entry:

    SELECT BANDANAVALUE FROM bandana WHERE BANDANAKEY = 'plugin.manager.state.Map';
  2. Look for an entry about the applinks plugin, like this:

  3. Delete whatever entry's there, then re-update the table:

    UPDATE bandana SET BANDANAVALUE = '<insert new xml here>' WHERE BANDANAKEY = 'plugin.manager.state.Map';
