Now the existing (primary) site is gone and when I try to recreate it I am given an error message that the site already exists, but it does not show up in my sites folder. How can I undelete/recover it?
Is the domain maybe still in the Recycle Bin? If yes, recover it.
If not, than I think that this is a "bug". I had the same problem (and more) some time ago (I think I did exactly the same as you did), and the only way I could fix it was by digging in the ISP database (do not do this!!!! It WILL break your ISPconfig if you do the wrong thing!!!
) (more info about my problem here
Start reading from message #3 - Now back to the isp_isp_domain problem.)
Also, should I check the create DNS and DNS-MX options when I create the site I want to use as a subdomain. Very confusing stuff the first time around. Thanks for any help.
If you are using your own DNS, than yes.. You will need to check the DNS.
