tried to publish site, it gave me a error message saying that site is already in use. I have everything setup with my external server. I did make a previous site with the same url. How do i fix this problem? If i wanted to make a new website for the same url?

Hi Ryan,

Had you made the previous website also on Yola? If you would like to use the same domain with another website, you'll need to unpublish the first website so that the domain is free for use:

1. Click on the down-arrow next to the yellow "Update My Site" button.
2. Click on "Publishing Settings".
3. Click on "Unpublish my Site".
4. You will be asked to confirm that you wish to unpublish your site. Click on "OK" and your site will be unpublished.

You will then be able to publish your second website to your domain.

Please come back to us if that does not work for you.

Hello Dannyzihua

You can see on your My Yola dashboard if your website is online or not, you can also see this in the Sitebuilder in the top left corner. If it's online, you can click on the link of your website address, and your browser will open your website.

To check your account in detail, we would need your login e-mail address (not your password). Thanks.
