[resolved] Can no longer create blogs (10 posts)

    I have recently tried to add a few blogs to my multisite install. I currently have 7 blogs on this install (at emergencydental.com). They were all created when I initially built the site in June.

    Now, when I try to add a site/blog, it adds it to site list (on the top admin bar and in network admin list of blogs), but I cannot access the site's dashboard; When I try to go to the dashboard, it always redirects me to the main blog dashboard. It looks like it doesn't create all the database tables. It just adds the blog name and ID to the wp_blogs table, but it appears to get stuck there. None of the other tables are created.

    I initially assumed this was a conflict with one of my plugins, but I disabled all of them, and it still won't create the blog. Has anyone had similar problems or any insight? Thanks in advance!

  2. Subdomains or subfolders?

    Sub folders. Each location is a separate site or blog.

  4. Does your SQL ID have access to create tables? It's possible they changed the permissions and took away the ability to do 'everything' (which Multisite needs).

    Good idea, but it looks like my SQL ID has all privileges enabled.

  6. Well if the DB is adding the values but not the tables, it's likely to be a DB issue. Run a repair on the DB, and make sure you can make a new table on that DB

    Thanks - I ran the repair and was still able to add tables, but still no luck creating tables from WP. Do you think reinstalling WP or reverting to an old DB backup may provide some insight?

  8. I presume you already checked the error log? I'd make a duplicate of my DB and test WP on that first, personally.

    I just found a couple older posts you and Andrea wrote about a year ago that exactly described my problem:

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/error-establishing-a-database-connection-adding-new-site?replies=26

    My problem happened to be the DB collation. For some reason mine changed, and that fixed it! Thanks again for all your help!

  10. Oh wow! That is a random! Glad you fount that.
