WebFaction
Community site: login faq

I installed web2py using the webfaction install script and I can access the admin interface. I have successfully edited and ran a controller in the "welcome" app. However, when I go to create a new app I get the message:

Unable to create application "xyz" (it may exist already)

Why is this happening and how can I fix it?

The answer appears to be (this worked for me):

  1. login to your webfaction account via SSH
  2. cd to your web2py installation folder (where web2py.py file is)
  3. run python2.7 web2py.py &
  4. run kill -SIGTERM somenumber-output-by-above-step

I also found a forum post online about restarting apache web2py - unable to create application but I did not need to do this.
