Access denied while deleting a SharePoint site with full control permission RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have full control permission on a SharePoint site. But while I try to delete site, (using Site-Actions -> site-settings -> Site Administration section > Delete this site link) I get Access denied error.

    And the log shows following entries:

    Deleting the site at http://xxx/yyy and not deleting AD accounts.

    Unknown SPRequest error occurred. More information: 0x80070005

    I do not really think I do not enough permissions on site. what could be the error here? Or what is the way to trace the exact issue?

  • Hi,

    Check the effective permissions on the site. You can use security report account provided by MSFT in adminToolkit for this or you can use my tools at:

  • Hi Sampath,

    which site template you are using ? 

    did you try with top level site from sites and workspaces ?

    you can also take a try from SharePoint Designer

    please let us know your results

  • Hi Pratik

    Template is : Wiki Site.

    Actually the client does not enough access to go to top-level site and neither he can go to SharePoint Designer.
