    Hi All,

    I terminated an account and then attempted to recreate it from last night's backup. I am getting this error:

    Code:
    Restoring hantscou
    
    Extracting Domain....Done
    DOMAIN CONFLICT: * owned by nobody - the copy failed! Account Restore Failed... Restore failed.
    
    Anyone know what causes this? Kind of need this site back up....

    The only thing I can think of, from what you pasted into the ticket, is that perhaps the site had a wildcard subdomain defined. This is not a common error that we see very often, so I recommend submitting a ticket so we can log into the server and try to fix this for you.

    Extracting Domain....Done DOMAIN CONFLICT: your-main-domain.com owned by system - the copy failed! Account Restore Failed... Restore failed.

    Just put in a ticket, hopefully they can figure it out.

    This wouldn't be the same error message if the wildcard (*) isn't being noted in it. Was the error message about "* owned by nobody" or about another domain that isn't a wildcard being owned by the system?

    I was trying to restore a backup and got this message.

    Not sure about the options you gave.

    If the message didn't indicate * in it (the wildcard), it would be a different issue. Normally, a domain will be owned by nobody or the system if someone manually added the domain in WHM without indicating which account the domain belongs to at the time in WHM > Add a DNS zone area.
