Can't get multisite to work...please help (3 posts)

    Hi all,

    I just purchased 10 different domain names and I intend to use multisite to manage them.

    e.g.
    http://www.A123.com
    http://www.B456.com

    I read through the multisite codex, and tried installing multiple times, but still did not manage to get my site to show up that Tools->Network Setup to show up on my dashboard.

    I installed my multisite on my host root directory and using my original domain name registered with my hosting when I purchased the hosting plan.

    I checked to ensure define( 'MULTISITE', true ); in the config php, and no folders with my original domain name is on my host.

    Please advise what I missed out...

    Thanks in advance.

    I am using my host's Softaculous to install my multisite. Could that be the issue?

    Here's my Config file.

    define('WP_DEBUG', false);
    
    define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);
    define( 'MULTISITE', true );
    define( 'SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', false );
    $base = '/';
    define( 'DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', 'www.internetmarketing4noobs.com' );
    define( 'PATH_CURRENT_SITE', '/' );
    define( 'SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1 );
    define( 'BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1 );
  3. Yes, it's very likely. Those scripts are ... well, they have their own idea of how things should work, and sometimes those ideas butt heads with WordPress.

    Do you have anything in your WP install yet? If not, delete everything from the DB and delete your files. Download, from WordPress, the fresh files. Make your domain in WP internetmarketing4noobs.com (NO WWW! Trust me on this one, it'll save you grief later). Make sure ALL URLS are sans-www and the site works with pretty permalinks.

    Once it's up and running, then add in define( 'MULTISITE', true ); to your wp-config.php and you should get the menu with the rest of the directions.

    Doing this manually is a great acid test to make sure you're ready to manage MultiSite, which does often need you to be comfy popping in and poking at files.
