[resolved] Create A Network Problems (4 posts)

    I have been using WordPress for about a week now and have installed and uninstalled it several times trying to get the url correct. I installed it using cPanel.

    Last night I went through the steps to create a network. I did get it to work. But my url was not setup as I wanted, so I uninstalled WordPress and reinstalled it to my root directory. WordPress works, but I cannot get it to establish the network.

    I believe I'm doing the same things I did last night. I went into the wp-config.php file and added the line "define(‘WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE’, true);" above "/* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */".

    I logged out and back in, but nothing happened.

    The file .htaccess was still setup from last night so I tried deleting all that info and starting over, but that also did not help.

    I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

    Thanks for your help.

    One more bit of info that might help.

    When I went to install WordPress in the root directory, I got an error message because it wanted me to delete the index file, which I did and then WordPress installed.

    But earlier this week I was playing with building a website and perhaps that caused changes in the files that are preventing WordPress from creating the network ? Just a thought.

    I got this working.

    Here's what happened: In the code "define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);" it looks like the little " ` " before the " W " got change to a slightly different format.

    They say it's the little things that matter.
