Using existed databases when creating new application

To whom it may concern,

I encountered the error of "The specified role "Administrators" already exists."  after creating a new sitefinity project during the project startup.

Is there a way to use an existed database which was previously owned by a sitefinity project? I would like to create several projects which use the same database and these projects will synchronize together. Is it possible to do that?

Hi John,

First things first - the error you are getting is due to the fact that the Administrator role ID in your SecurityConfig configuration file does not match the one in the database. This usually happens when you try to connect two solutions to the same database without making sure they have the same configurations.

Regarding the question you have posted - it is possible to have multiple solutions hooked up to a single database instance. For this purpose you will need to use Sitefinity's Load Balancing. Please go through the documentation for further reference.

It is also possible to sync between solutions as well. For this purpose you can take advantage of Sitefinity's Site Synchronization module. More information is also in our Documentation.
