Name has already been taken

I recently deleted a project. Now when I try and create it again using the same namespace and name GitLab EE gives me the following error:

  • Name has already been taken
  • Path has already been taken

I’m running EE version 8.8.1-ee.

I also searched the /var/opt/gitlab/git-data directory and removed the directories that referenced my old project.

I tried clearing the redis cache using gitlab-rake cache:clear. I restarted the services and the server several times.

This normally doesn’t happen, but at some point I setup repository mirroring against the repo and I also archived it. I’m trying to reproduce the issue but in the meantime I can’t recreate the project. Does anyone have any ideas?
