    I had similar error when creating WordPress resource in sandbox account. When I check the app-service-sku-policy, it only allowing F1, D1, Y1 plans. So I created new plan with F1 plan (which is free) and it created resources straightaway. You can find the policy app-service-sky-policy in Policy service. ![101325-image.png][1] [1]: /api/attachments/101325-image.png?platform=QnA

    Hi @Sre Hari R ,

    In general, we would see this error if there is a policy in your subscription which disallows the creation / updation of such resources. To be able to proceed further, you might have to disable that policy which was not allowing the successful deployment. For more information w.r.t retrieving details about the policy that blocked your deployment, please refer this article.

    If that's not the case then as the clean subscription / sandbox should work and if the exercise that you are trying is part of some certification / learning material then there might be issue with the order of the exercises. If so, Microsoft Certification / Exam / Learn related questions are currently not supported on this forum. It's better to reach out to dedicated forum over here / here.
