I'm trying to create a SiteCollection (not Site) thru the central Admin
page: Appliication Mgt/SharePt Site Mgt/Create Site Collection


There is no "Custom" tab that will allow you to pick a Custom Site
Template that i have created beforehand.

Does anyone know how to accomplish such as task ?

I see the option for createsite and createsiteinnewdb but due to the

I'm not sure if there is an option for creating site collections.

How did you add the site  template? If you did with through STSADM
