.htaccess-dist Multisite Images Not Showing (2 posts)

    Just installed multisite and images didn't show on a sub domain.

    In the initial install, wordpress created two .htaccess files.

    1. .htaccess
    2. .htaccess-dist

    I said to myself WTF? I hate mysteries and bad beta testing.

    I googled, and no info, not even a description of the mysterious .htaccess-dist file

    I looked at both files and changed the name of the .htaccess-dist to .htaccess and changed the .htaccess to pinkhtaccess. That solved my image problem.

    I know .htaccess files are for junior admins, but thats what we got.

    So the mystery .htaccess-dist file had the right info I would assume.

    Any feedback on if I might have broke something else or did something improper, please let me know.

    Thanks...

  2. It's not a WordPress thing in and of itself, but the -dist file was probably from a backup. Nothing to worry about :)
