When I am creating new Web Application in SharePoint 2010 from Central Admin, The Web Application is not creating and shows some error like

Master Database does not exist

My system is Windows 7 64 bit and SQL Server 64 bit 2008, SharePoint Foundation 2010, Visual Studio 2010 64 bit, Everything installed successfully.

But now it shows an error when I am going to create a new Web Application.

  • Is this first web application you create after SP instalation? Or it was working before and it just got broken later? How was the SP installed? Standalone or script like installation? Try check if DB exists using SQL mgmt studio. If yes, there might be connection issue from SP, or the DB got corrupted. Do you have backup?

  • If you have correlation ID, please go to your SP directory, C:\Program files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\LOGS here open the file with coresponding date/time and search for correlation id. It might give you a better idea what is going on. Please copy here the error message, or try to google it. Here is a tool to open the logs in more friendly UI: sharepointlogviewer.codeplex.com

1 Answer 1


This is a SQL Server Error.

Verify that the Master database exists. And if not recover it from your backup.
