How do I delete or restore my Wiki space?

Creating a backup

If you wish to back up your space before deleting it, you can export your space or specific pages. For instructions, see "Export Content to Word, PDF, HTML and XML"

Deleting a Space

For instructions, see "Delete a Space"

Restoring a Space

Only a Illinois Wiki Service Administrator can restore a space. Please contact to open a request for a space restore.

Restoring a Page

When a Wiki page is deleted, it actually does not delete, but instead, it is moved to the trash bin. If you believe there is a page in the trash that you would like to save, more information and instructions for restoring and resurrecting pages can be found in the following article:

Note: Only a space admin can restore a page once it is sent to the trash bin. 

At times the Illinois Wiki will undergo a mandatory trash cleanup. It will not be possible to recover pages after they are deleted. Space admins will be notified by email in advance so that they may review their trash and restore any items they may wish to retain.
