    Hi there everyone.

    I'm trying to create a new subdomain through the CPanel & no matter what name I use for teh subdomain, I get the following message:

    (subdomain name) is owned by another user.

    Other users on the same server are experiencing the exact same problem.

    I've created several subdomains in teh past & have never had this problem before.

    Any & all help will be greatly appreciated.

    It can be contingently a problem with your cPanel configration.

    Check for the entry of that subdomain in

    /var/cpanel/users
    /var/named/ delete the domain.db file
    /etc/named.conf
    /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
    /etc/localdomains
    /etc/userdomains
    /etc/valiases/
    /etc/vdomainaliases

    delete the entry if it exists and then try to recreate it.
