[resolved] Issue with subdomain installation - can't create new site (3 posts)

    I am running a subdomain multisite installation. My developer has successfully created two sites for me, plus the main site, and mapped them correctly, so I know that it's doing what it should be doing. However, I cannot seem to create a fourth site using the "Add New Site" function. Here are the symptoms:

    1. Dashboard for site 4 is created. However, it doesn't not appear as an option from the "My sites" dropdown from the top menu bar. It does appear, however, when selecting Sites > All Sites.

    2. Going to the domain x.domain.com doesn't display anything. Just an empty page with no source code.

    3. Blogs.dir folder for site 4 has not been created. Is this an issue? Does it get installed when a file is uploaded?

    4. DB Tables *seem* to be installed correctly. In PHPMyAdmin, I see the 9 DB default tables that should be installed at the blog level.

    Something funky is definitely happening. Would appreciate any suggestions you might have.

    Thanks,
    Christine

    This thread would hold more weight in the Multisite specific forum as a lot of our Multisite experts hang out there.

    However, judging from my experience with Multisite (which isn't much when it comes to the domain aspect), I'd say it has to do with the domain mapping. The blogs.dir folder for each site is created when the first media item is uploaded to the site, so you don't need to worry about anything there.

    I had a similiar issue with the sites not showing up in all the right places before when I was messing with domain mapping, but I'm not sure what the problem could be.
