The Portal Alias Name You Specified Already Exists. Please Choose A Different Portal Alias.

This is the error I ahve been getting when  I try to create new parent portals.  I have checked the database tables and I am not using an existing portal alias nor the same admin account, etc...

I can not create any new portals now.  Always get the same error.  I am running DNN 4.7 as I upgraded a week or so ago from 4.6.2.  I have 7 portals running on this installation.

Please someone give me a pointer as to where I need to look to fix this issue.  thank you.

I'm unpleasantly surprised that after all this time and all these upgrades, the bug still exists in much later versions, e.g. 7.3.4 !!

I'm getting the same error on 7.3.4 !!

The link http://support.dotnetnuke.com/issue/V... that Erik is proposing is not of course available after all these years since 2006 !

People reporting the same issue in various Community posts:

I'll paste the same reply on all the above just to unite & aggregate the open issue!

So hopeless !
