When I try to create a website I get the following error (Specified web site already exists). I have checked thoroughly and there is not Web Site specified on the Web Server for that domain. Additionally, in the ServiceItems table, this domain does not exist that is linked to a Web Site, the only Services its linked to are DNS and Hosted Organizations.
Any ideas? Thanks.
Can you check the event log of the web server? It normally will give more details on the error and should help us diagnose the problem.
I managed to solve this issue so this is just for information sharing. What happened was there was a stale record in the DB under the dbo.Domains table where the Domain had 2 records. 1 which is the standard entry that is created when the domain is added where the isDomainPointer is 0. The second one differed slightly whereby the isDomainPointer was set to 1 – (I am not sure what this is used for so please do share if you know). After deleting this entry the web site created successfully.
