    I use Purely Hosting and cPanel. Would I have to delete everything in cPanel before I do that? I did a full backup about 2 days ago and restored. Can I still use that? I actually copied all posts to MS Word so that I could do whatever and not lose that. I was using Firefox because IE has been slow for me. I can't lot out on WP on Firefox but I as able to login on EI and have the top toolbar functions back. I forgot how to empty my cache.

    login on EI and have the top toolbar functions back.

    What does it mean? So you can see the full features back on IE but not on other browsers?

    I have just uploaded the user-role-editor for the 3rd time. It's in my cPanel but when I activate in WP it disappears following a long wait. This last time it didn't even get the extraction. How do I empty my caches again?

    And I meant the WP top toolbar where I can go from site to site and edit to view post and the drop down at Howdy.

    I have finally gotten phpmyadmin to come up. My current php is version 3.4.11.1. A newer version 3.5.4 is listed nest to that. On phpadmin, they say in November version 5.4.9 and 5.4.19 were released.
    My current sql is 5.1.65cll. Should I update? Still waiting on whether I should reload full WP and if I have to delete anything first.

    Since you're not getting help from anyone else i suppose i'll come back... I keep getting updates from this thread via email and feel bad for you :(

    installing something like user-role-editor was my first thought, but since being able to manage plugins is the main source of your troubles it doesn't make much sense that it would solve your issue. If you don't have the ability to activate plugins, how will installing a plugin help?

    first things first: can you get to your wp-config.php file? DO NOT post or sceen shot the contents of this file , but see if there is a line of code that looks like this

    define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);

    i'm beginning to wonder if a) your multisite network was set up correctly or b) if your user level for the network is administrator and not super administrator. multisite setups don't work as single installs do, and based on the troubles you're having, this may be the cause.

    let me know first if you have this line in wp-config.php, then we can go from there. but i have a hunch you will need to start from scratch with a fresh install using a step-by-step tutorial for multisite. if i were you, i would

    1. back up your databases two ways:
      - entire database
      - JUST post content: wp_posts, wp_meta, etc (everything but your actual settings which probably arn't the issue, but never hurts to be safe)
    2. try a fresh single install and see if you have the same problems. if not:
    3. do a fresh multi-site install using detailed instructions on how to properly set up a network for multisite environment

    since you are so new at this, how did you get the setup installed in the first place? was it done for you using one of those single-click installs through cpanel?

    kristinachilds, thanks for looking at this again. I could not find you email on my database. I even tried to find you on facebook but there were several & no clues if you were one. Hope I can fix that, too. My very first experience with internet marketing was a video I saw on Pinprofits. I didn't buy into the whole thing, just enough to be able to watch the training videos. I was given 5 websites set up for free. I had to buy a domain and select a host. I was referred to Hostgator which sounded fishy to me, newbie that I am. So I did a little research, looked on warriorforum and came up with Purelyhosting. They have not been able to fix the problem for me. I have like 17 tickets with them. I assume they used the cPanel, but it was all set up for me so I don't know. They set it up as a multi-site (I assume this since I can use the top toolbar to switch sites. I may be wrong.) Trying to get to wp-config now. Is that in cPanel or phpmyadmin?

    I found a file on cPanel names wp-config.php. I right clicked on it and selected view. It says what you mentioned above.

    In my cPanel, Fantastico Delux shows the WP new installation would be 3.3.2. I have 3.4.2. Would I have to install directly from WP.org? Do I delete anything in cPanel after backup and before new install?

    I strongly suggest you stop and then do some reading.
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Getting_Started_with_WordPress

    Your host may also have some tutorials and many wp tutorials can be found on utube but it seems you are in completely over-your-head. You just can't watch some marketing video and jump into wordpress multiuser.

    A good book is WordPress for Dummies. It helped me a lot in the beginning.

    kmessinger - That's me - the dummy. Thanks, I'll take your advise and do some reading.

    Hey now, you're no dummy! Just inexperienced. Big difference :)

    kmessinger is absolutely right, though. What you need is some good tutorials and a solid introduction into wordpress installation and management. I would HIGHLY recommend starting out with a simple single install before tackling a multisite as there are quite a few moving parts and it's important to know how to crawl before trying to run a marathon.

    BUT here are some sources to help you get started:

    Single Install:

    http://thedesignsuperhero.com/2012/03/best-wordpress-tutorials-for-beginners-to-advanced-users/

    Multisite:
    The basics: http://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network
    Migrating existing single-installs into one multisite: http://codex.wordpress.org/Migrating_Multiple_Blogs_into_WordPress_3.0_Multisite
    Step-by-step tutorial for multisite setup: http://www.thermalexposure.com/2012/04/25/wordpress-multisite-installation-walk-through/
    (if you look through this and it makes your head spin, you may want to seek help from your ftp host, a friend, or hired help)

    Another excellent resource is the wordpress stack exchange site. You'll find loads of helpful people and many questions you have will have already been answered http://wordpress.stackexchange.com/

    You always want to stay up on the most current wordpress version. This will be whatever is available for download on the wordpress site. Right now it's 3.4.2.

    You've got quite a bit of work ahead of you, but don't get discouraged! We all had to start somewhere.

    If you google "kristina childs" that's pretty much all me on the first page. not the phd, though... there's no doctorate hanging on my studio wall :)

    kristinachilds, thank you for the encouragement and support. I will look into everything you suggested and try to be better educated in this field. I have learned a lot since I started this new venture but I'm no code writer. I'm good with tools that are ready to use but fixing a problem is a step-by-step learning process for me. I'll let you know how it works out. In the meantime, my sites do work and I'll be adding posts. I'll work and learn. Thanks for being patient with me and letting me contact you again.
    Toni
