    On our old site, we had a page

    http://www.domain.com/contact-us/

    which doesnt exist anymore.

    No we have http://www.domain.com/contact/

    But Google tells, http://www.domain.com/contact-us/ was the famous page with good domain authority, so we tried to edit the permalink for http://www.domain.com/contact/ to contact-us , but its saving as contact-us-2

    I searched for http://www.domain.com/contact-us/ on frontend and backend, but it doesnt exist, so why does it not accept contact-us ?

    Is there a way to search this on database and delete the contact-us record, then it will accept ?

    Go to the edit page page,and above the list of pages,just click the quick edit link to see if someone is using the slug

    Also check the Trash under Pages. If a page with the contact-us slug is in there, WP won't release it until you empty the trash.
