Hello, I have project server, no proxy, on 1 box and Share Point on the IIS box.  I have several projects with websites already created...but when I create a new project I dont recieve any errors...yet when I look at the list of projects under sharepoint...all the projects have an associated website except this new one...I try to create a new website and get this error: 'error occured when creating site.  Site does not seem to exist.'  I already confirmed an email address entry in the site owner field.  Any thoughts.

ST helps when you reenter WSS conf in PWA
In PWA=> ADMIN=> Manage Windows SharePoint Services .

Once we have corrupted WSS content database.

You should also verify that identity which was entered
 C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Project Server 2003\BIN\1033\PSCOMPLUS.EXE
Is WSS admin
Log as this identity and create new SITE  from command line using the STSADM.EXE


===========================

When it doesn't help fastest way how to fix it is reinstallation of PWA

Uninstall the MS Project.

Backup MS Project DB and restore this DB as Project20061101
Install MS Project again and create new blank  DB( ProjectServer) - install all patches - which was installed before, And verify that Project workspace is created.

Then we connect PWA to previous DB
Create 2 users(you can use existing DB users) with SQL authentication  for exampple
ServerUser - in tab database acces click to Project20061101 DB and inPermit in database role select  MSProjectServerRole
DesktopUser-  in tab database access click to Project20061101 DB and inPermit in database role select  MSProjectRole

Execute
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Project Server 2003\BIN\1033\CONNINFO.EXE  or
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Project Server 2003\BIN\1029\CONNINFO.EXE (number depends on your language)

and enter there Db Server name, Database name and User which was created in previous step and then click to Save

If the site isn’t created there is problem in your project DB, in this case verify your WSS configuration..

I found the issue.
The default template for the website creation could not be found. This was due to the fact that the url path for the location of the sharepoint server was modified to point out to the external address instead of the true name as it appears internally to our network. Once this was pointed to the internal name, the default website template was available and automatic site creation works.

Thanks for all the suggestions !
