I created a test site in sharepoint using the Enterprise search template with the name 'search'. So my site was
http://mysite/search. Well I deleted that site and tried to recreate it with that same name and it fails.
I can create a site with the name search1, search2, etc and they all are created properly, but if I delete search1, or search2 and repeat what I did above those fails as well.
It seems like sharepoint isn't properly deleting the sites and there are orphaned files somewhere.
Any suggestions as to how I can resolve this?
