Multisite subdomain not working (8 posts)

    Hi,

    I am quiet new at multisite, I am using it to do a bilingual website, with xxx.com/fr/ and xxx.com/en/
    I just installed it and created those extensions in the wordpress panel. I received the email of creation but when I try to go to this part of the website or even in the wp-admin
    it tells me that there are to many redirections to open this page..
    What can I do to solve this problem?

    Thanks a lot for your help :)

  2. Check your .htaccess. Did you set it up right?

    well I think so, I followed every step and I see the admin panel for the different sites.
    here is what is in my .htaccess:

    AddType x-mapp-php5 .php
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    
    # uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$1 [L]
    
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    is that ok?

  4. Yep :) It's just a good check.

    Too many redirections usually is a case of your webserver not being set up right, or that you've got a missmatch between http://www.domain.com and domain.com

    When you go to your domain, does it send you to http://www.xxx.com?

    yes it does but both work
    if I re-install everything will it work?

  6. Actually 'both' won't work, or you wouldn't be having this issue ;) See Multisite (and WP really) like having just one address. Either www or not www. Can't really be both, that's why one redirects to the other, and that is what can cause too many redirects if not set up properly.

    If you chose to reinstall, you have to make sure the Site and Home urls are the same before you turn on Multisite. Given that that's easier than digging into the DB, I'd do that if you don't have a lot of data to use.

    ok, how do I mike sure to have everyting working when I re-install it?

  8. If you chose to reinstall, you have to make sure the Site and Home urls are the same before you turn on Multisite.

    What I said :)

    Make sure you have the exact same site and home URL, make sure everything works on single site. THEN go to multisite.
