After upgrading Confluence to a version 5.1.x, spaces do not appear when clicking on the Spaces button on the dashboard.

Nothing relevant appears on the logs.


After upgrading a reindex from scratch is needed. Also, since Confluence 5 has a different layout regarding Confluence 4, all the customizations must be removed.


  • First Rebuild the Content Indices from Scratch. Do not forget to perform the manual re-indexing.
  • If the issue persists remove all possible customizations on Confluence, since they can interfering on the page where Spaces are shown.
    Customizations are under Look  and Feel section, on Confluence Administrator panel. You can check for customizations also on the DECORATOR table, on Confluence database.

(info)  Perform a database backup before making any changes on your database side.
