install not working (10 posts)

    I just successfully upgraded to 3.0 using the automatic upgrade button on my WordPress blog. I installed the multi-user Network for MU capabilities as described. I set up a sample site, but a few things went wrong:

    1. The URL sent to me for my sample site does not exist.
    2. No password was generated for my sample site log in.

    Can anyone tell me how to fix this? Thanks!

  2. 1 - what format did you pick? If it was subdomains, you need to set them up on the server side. Yes, the codex page did mention this.

    2 - Did you add a new user? If you used the same email as the main site, then you use the exact same username and password for the second site. Hence, the lack of a password.

    Thanks for your response.

    1. I did not pick a format. It assigned me as subdomains without asking. I prefer sub directories.

    2. I added a new site. The password missing is only one part of the problem. The other more important part is that both the new site/blog and new admin log in did not exist when I clicked on the URLs; I was brought back to my homepage.

    Update: I successfully changed from a sub-domain setup to a sub directory setup.

    Current issues:

    1. I added a new site and user but got no email welcoming me to WP and providing my username, password, and URLs.

    2. If I go direct to the URL of the new site I created, there is no theme present, even though I have two themes enabled in my themes settings, including the new WP default: reshelter.org/samplejournal/

    3. The admin link found on the above link for my new site does not exist.

    Can anyone help? Thanks!

    I am having the exact same issue.

    I was also forced into subdomain mode without being prompted for a selection. Then I switched "true" to "false" manually in wp-config.php, but the sub-directory sites still don't work.

    define( 'SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', false );

    What exactly is the difference between the subdomain setup and the subdirectory setup? What else needs to be converted?

    I have the same problem, although (as far as I remember) my multisite installation was using subdirectories from the beginning.

    The main website works ok, with permalinks and everything; the subdirectory sites show no theme, and their backend/dashboard give a strange "page not found" page (but not quite the regular 404).

  7. the subfolder blogs work on the basis of mod_rewrite actually reading your htaccess file. That's it.

    If you have access to the server, put
    AllowOverride FileInfo Options
    in the vhost entry.

    If not, tell your webhost your htaccess file changes aren't being read.

    If this is the issue, shouldn't permalinks give the same problem? They work ok...

    I have the same problem as YairD, I am running WP 3.0 with Multisite, with subdirectories.

    The main website works ok, with permalinks and everything; the subdirectory sites show no theme, and their backend/dashboard give a strange "page not found" page (but not quite the regular 404).

    Exactly the same, there is no theme even if I go to Super Admin>> Sites>> user edit and select the checkbox, nothing changes. If i click on backend, or login with the user account instead of Admin, I can't get into the backend/dashboard for that user's site/blog. It says "page not found".

    can someone help pls!?

    Not necessarily. :)

    It's the exact same answer as above - mod_rewrite is not reading your htaccess file.

    And both posters - please make sure you have the right one with the code given to your when you set up the network.
