There should be entries for 'CreateASite' in your members, ManilaWebsites,
discuss, and config (see manila/sites) databases. If one of these is missing
I suggest you delete them all and then run setup again. I am assuming that
the CreateASite Website is being created as part of the setup - and because
parts of it is already there, the setup is not able to complete the process

If you want to try re-installing from scratch, there is a preference at
user.prefs.firstRootRun; set it to true.

Just some suggestions - it might be an idea to get feedback from others
about the above - just in case it's not a good idea to try to start from
scratch again - for some reason I can't see at the moment.

All the best,
