Blogs not listing in admin

Sep 4, 2012 at 9:36 AM


My 2.5 install seems to have broken a little bit. I have looked in /App_Data/Blogs and all I have is one called Template.

I have gone into the blog admin page and tried to add a new one called News.

Add new blog ->
Name: News
Storage Container Name: news
Host Name:
Virtual Path: ~/news
Existing blog to create new blog from: Primary. 

When I do this I get an error of "Another blog has the same combination of Hostname and Virtual Path.". If I engine something in virtual path like "random" it creates the news folder in App_Data/blogs/news.

In the "Existing Blog to Create New Blog from" drop down I have about 8 blogs listed, all failed attempts at me creating them along with News, Primary and Template.


It seems odd, maybe it's a permissions problem, but can anyone help please? I'd just like to add one blog and none are being listed.


Thank you very much,

I believe my news.xml file was corrupt, I have replaced it and now I have a blog listing again.


Thank you
