Site creation can’t continue because of a configuration issue with the parent site

I’m having problems to make my site creation work.

I followed the guide at this blog, everything is setup as what described. If I go to personal site, i.e., I can see the new site link. When click it, it pops this error shown in screen shot. What I wanted to do is create the site collect at:

However, if I go to this page’s site content, create a subsite, it works fine. One subsite url is shown in screen shot with yellow circle. The created subsite is at:

myinc is the domain name, it is the prefix for personal site.

anyone knows something about this error? or any clue how I can fix this?

BTW, if I go to , I can see the create team site page, fill in info, click the create button. It shows error with no much other info.

*** BTW, I just know 1 thing: this site collection (my site host) was migrated from another server. Here is how it was done: create web app on this new server, then export content database from the old server, then attach to the new server. after this, everything else works fine. Could it because of this?

UPDATE: This is odd. I removed all permissions, add permissions, disable self-service, then enable self-service. Then try to create the site (it is site collection, not subsite under personal site). same error messages. The setting I use is in below screen shot: enter image description here

So, I played the settings, and I accidentally changed one setting: I removed the “my/[%userid%]” in the above screen (so it is blank). When I try to create site again, it shows this error:

enter image description here

I’m using a domain user account. So I think if I use a farm admin account, it should be ok? It turns out YES. It works for farm admin! So, it is because of permission! But what permission? So I removed all user permissions again, and add permissions again (just like i did before), weird thing happened: now, it works for domain user! but only for root domain . I played more and found a more weird thing. See the 2nd screen shot, I choose the “Prompt users to create a site collection under any managed path” (red circle), when I click add new site, it works:

enter image description here

See the site collection url, ? I do not understand what the difference between this and the choice in the 1st screenshot (if I give it a name my_test_site_collection).

Anyone understand this? to me, I’m ok with it since I can use it (the last screen), but would like to know why it shows error in the first screen.

Deluge torrent client continue downloading files in a new Ubuntu installation, from the same state that was in a broken Ubuntu installation

My Ubuntu has broken. I had downloaded some files and I was downloading other files using Deluge Torrent client. I would like to install Deluge in the new Ubuntu installation that I am going to do, and be able to continue dowwnloading those files that I was downloading but that did not finished downloading, from the same state that they were (example 20% of file A had already been downloaded).

I have seen that exists a directory with the .torrent files and 2 files named torrents.fastresume and torrents.state


If I copy those files in the state directory in the new Ubuntu installation after installing Deluge, will I be able to continue Deluge in the same state that was in the broken Ubuntu installation?

All the files downloaded using Deluge (those ones that have fully downloaded and those ones that have partially downloaded) are stored in an external hard drive

Wifi connection wont continue without being next to wifi

So I found I have two accounts for asking the Ubuntu community. I sadly can’t remember the passcode for the other one so here we are again. I’ve since gone to Ubuntu 18.04 and thought that getting off of yakkety would correct the problem. However it did not. I’m working with a macbook a1181 ubuntu 18.04 with wifi card AR242x. I’m not sure where to begin and I’m rusty as I was off this computer for a while do to another issue i had experienced that corrected itself. any starting point would help.

The site recommends including code proof of my wifi card and didnt know what line of code to cut from this so using lspci here is what generated

Save & Continue Button

In the app I am working on the user is presented with a list of item on the left and a panel contained with input fields on the right. The user will navigate the list and edit pricing criteria for each item in the list. In order to make the process easier and smoother, I have been playing around with some different actions.

The first is having a Save and Cancel button so the user can save the data, and then have next and previous buttons to navigate the list.

The second is having a “Save & Continue”, “Save”, and “Cancel” button. This way the user can decide whether they just want to save the current item and remain viewing that item, or they can flow through the list by saving and continuing.

Is there anything wrong with having a “Save” and “Save & Continue” button?

I’m writing an application that needs to log error/ exception messages but should still continue execution if it not a fatal error

I’m writing an application that needs to log error/ exception messages but should still continue execution if the error is not a fatal error. I was thinking of making a method that returns a Task but calling this method as a fire and forget and not wait for response from the method. What is the recommendation, is this a good approach?

Can you continue the movement of a Bonus Action Dash granted by Expeditious Retreat if your Concentration is broken mid-move?

The spell Expeditious Retreat requires concentration, and reads:

When you cast this spell, and then as a bonus action on each of your turns until the spell ends, you can take the Dash action.

Assume that a character has used all of their normal movement, and that character starts the Bonus Action Dash and uses some but not all of the movement granted by this Dash. If concentration is lost at that point (either due to an opportunity attack/readied action or the casting of another concentration spell) is that character permitted to continue moving the remainder of their dash distance?

Which is more motivating to continue a process until completion: a percentage, or the number of steps?

I’m working on a set of guides to help users learn how to use our app. We want to show which guides are available and some data with each guide indicating how far you’ve gotten. The idea is that if we show this information and constantly remind you of it, you’ll be more motivated to complete each one and learn more things about the app.

What we disagree on is how to format that information. Which is better: “You have completed 4/7 steps” vs “You have completed 57%”? Looking for data/metrics, not opinions.

Can you ritual cast multiple Phantom Steeds and continue re-summoning them while traveling?

Can you ritual cast the Phantom Steed spell multiple times and in practice just re-summon them while you are traveling? So for example, could a Wizard ritual summon a horse, three times in a row. And then just focus on re-summoning them while he’s riding one of them. The spell lasts 1 hour, ritual casting it 3 times would take 33 minutes. So he should have more than enough time to summon new horses for himself and his party before any of the individual horses disappear. Is this correct?

Just DMed my first game and need advice on how to continue [on hold]

I just ran my first game as DM. It was on discord and it went quite well. My players want more, and the downside is that I have only played DnD twice before DMing and couldn’t find a DM for us.

So now that you know the backstory I was wondering if anyone had any tips on how to DM 2 player games who (thank god) are into the role play but decided to make these abominations of characters: a high-elf ranger and a hill-dwarf barbarian.

I thought homebrew would be a good idea but I did my best to mitigate the amount of homebrew as was in the game as it was their first game but it went quite well.


I DMed a game after only playing 3 hrs of DnD it went better than expected and need tips on how to continue 3 hour, 2 man games without making it look like I’m trying to negate what they can do on the homebrew front.
