Code: 81053 - An A, AAAA, or CNAME record with that host already exists

Hi there

Our website is on a subdomain, and on the Cloudflare DNS, we already haveA record to point to the our application server, and it’s been liked for ages. However to we are exploring the S3 bucket, and we need to follow this doc:

As we follow this documentation for Wasabi - How do I use Cloudflare with Wasabi? – Wasabi Knowledge Base

It needs aCNAME and point to their S3 bucket server. When we added

TYPEcname, Name: createai ,

, we got the following error:

An “A,AAAA,orCNAME” record with that host already exists. For more details, refer to (Code: 81053)

How do you deal with this subdomain application, then?


You can’t use the same name (subdomain) as your website, because that name is already pointing to your website. You just need to use a different subdomain.
