Missing Link to Backend (5 posts)

    Hi, I have created a WordPress network on my main domain example.com and created SITEs on subdomains. Under "My Sites" I can see the two sites I created. But, I have no access to their backends. It seems that the WordPress files are NOT been installed in the directories that link to the subdomain. In other words, the directories are EMPTY. (No wp-admin stuff are present.)

    Thanks in Advance.

    1. Since it is a multisite install, the files are managed on the blogs.dir

    2. Few things to remember:
    - You need to be a super-admin to view all subsites, even without you added as an admin to the site.
    - Try .. example.com/yoursitename/wp-admin - that will always work.

    Let me know how that goes.

    I installed my WordPress on my main Domain; and I created two sites on two different sub-domains.
    When I visit my subdomain(directories) from the FTP client, I see that they are EMPTY, which means I cannot use http://example.com/directory/wp-admin
    Please Advice.

    Thanks.

    With WP Network/Multisite, the process will not create any subdomain directory on the FTP since the files are managed using the blogs.dir

    The subdomain will share the same themes and plugins. This is the beauty of WP Network/Multi site.

    To access the backed (the long way), you may go to http://example.com/wp-admin/network/sites.php

    and hover the site: Picture

  5. When I visit my subdomain(directories) from the FTP client, I see that they are EMPTY, which means I cannot use http://example.com/directory/wp-admin

    No, it means you need to delete the directories via FTP :) They're overriding WordPress.
