New project cannot be created in one of my Spaces

When I open a new project in one of my Spaces named Dear R Studio scientists
'uph', no new project emerged and I got the following error message

"Unable to fork project=268627. Forked projects cannot be forked."

What should I do?

If you are having trouble with a specific project, be sure to include the URL of your project.

Be careful about sharing any private data or personally identifying information in the projects you make public.

Hi @kokozaw,

It looks like that space has a base project set, and that base project is a copy of another project. Our system doesn't currently support this behavior, and we recently made a change in RStudio Cloud to prevent spaces from getting into this state. I'm guessing this base project was set before that change went live. Sorry about that!

To create projects in this space, the base project setting will need to be updated. Are you an admin of this space? If so, you can either select a different project to use or clear the current selection in the space's settings, and you should be able to create projects again. You can see more info (+ screenshots) about how to do this in the Guide.

Hope that helps,

Dear Mel

Thank a lot. l will try out what you advised.
