    you had a working installation 1st?

    can you log in to database with phpmyadmin and check if tables are there and are correctly prefixed?

    Hi

    It was working before on a single site bases. I am now trying to set up a multisite website.

    The tables are all there.

    I also have some other errors which may be having an impact on the above and below are the suggestions wordpress has given me. The problem is I can't seem to find the files in my public_html directory on my control panel. I'm probably not looking in the right place.

    1. Sub-domain sites work with the use of wildcard subdomains. This is a
    two-step
    process:
    Apache must be configured to accept wildcards.

    Open up the httpd.conf file or the include file containing the VHOST entry for
    your web account.
    Add this line:
    ServerAlias *.example.com
    In the DNS records on your server, add a wildcard subdomain that points to
    the
    main installation. It should look like:
    A *.example.com'

    '2. Create a blogs.dir directory under /wp-content/
    This directory is used to store uploaded media for your additional sites and
    must be writable by the web server. They should be CHOWNed and CHMODed the
    same
    as your wp-content directory.'
    3. Add the following to your .htaccess file in
    > /home/m.../public_html/, replacing other WordPress rules:
    >
    > RewriteEngine On
    > RewriteBase /
    > RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    >
    > # uploaded files
    > RewriteRule ^files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$1 [L]
    >
    > RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    > RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    > RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    > RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    Thanks

    From a novice.
