I just created a trail account and when I try to install any new app I got this message "Database already exists"

Hi Mohamed, try to create new database and then install any app then there should not be any error.

Dear Keyur/Mahmoud,

this happened to me as well a couple of times. I was able to create the database but not to install the first app because of a time-out on the server. then when you retry to install the first app the error message as indicated by Mohamed is generated.

Creating another database with another name is a workaround in my opinion but not a solution for being stuck with databases you cannot use anymore afterwards

Dear Mohamed, That's means you have database with the same name, please try a new name
