Trying to create a new acct and keep getting this message:

Sorry, that domain is already setup (remove it from httpd.conf?)

It's not in the .conf file or any other file that I can think to check. Does anyone else know of a file that I'm not thinking of that could be referring to the domain?

-Thanks

Try to go to backup and roll back the httpd.conf file, I have had this problem before by create new account without setting up nameserver on a new box.

Sorry, that domain is already setup

Hi,

I have the same problem. I removed it from httpd.conf, names, localdomains..... nothing. I even rolled back the httpd.conf file.

When the cpanel was installed, at hostname, the admin entered exactly the domain name i want to transfer/create. I changed the hostname to sg1.domain.ro from domain.ro. The error is still there.

Is there a file where domain.ro can be still in and when trying to create an account, if the file contains the domain, the error will occur?

I really need to create the account and I have no idea at all how to do it.. I allready tried everything I found on this forum.

Can someone please help me?

I did't it. I made the account.
You have to have some guts to do what I did, because I have no idea what I did :p

grep -r &x& *....... and delete everything equal to x :)

httpd.conf + names + localdomains +aliases + I cannot remeber :)

after 2 days of banging my head to the walls, posted on this forum, asking for support at darkorb (i bought it from darkorb) witch by the way didn't replyed.... I now can enjoy a good coffe break and a cigarette...

Believe me, for a greenhorn like me, to do what I did these last couple of days is like walking on the moon for armstrong :)

Have fun deleting it!

Marius

After you create an account in WHM make a copy of all the steps that it went through. That will give you a list of files that you need to look at to delete all the traces of &x& domain or user if you need to.
