[resolved] new blogs not created in new multi-site - have WPMU in sub-folder (6 posts)

    I had WP installed at the root of my site and upgraded to 3.0 and followed instructions to create multisite network. I also have a sub folder with WPMU installed.
    My permalinks work.
    I updated wp-config and htaccess with the code generated from the network install.
    My WPMU install creates the folders with no problem and I am using the same user/rights in the database.
    The original install created a sub-domain setup and I changed it to sub-directory according to a post I found in the forum.
    Do you think the problem with the blogs not being created has something to do with having a WPMU install on the same server, even though it is in a subdirectory. I know when I installed WPMU I had to comment out some lines in wp-config in the root folder to complete the installation?

    Thanks in advance.

    It could be. subfolder and subdirectories are the *same thing*.

    Where's your site?

    http://www.parklandsd.org - upgraded to 3.0 multisite from wp 2.92
    http://www.parklandsd.org/web - WPMU site

    subdirectory for multisite: http://www.parklandsd.org/carts

    I checked the database and all the tables are there.

    Thankyou :-)

  4. The second site is a completely blank screen. this is always a php error of some sort.

    Like, just for example, if you deleted the default theme, creating a new blog that looks for that theme will give you this error. ;)

    Can you login to the backend of the /carts/ blog?

    Hi Andrea,
    I uploaded the files for WP 3.0 again in case something was causing a php error.
    Thanks for the advice to look at the themes. I did a manual install and did not upload the wp-content folder as I didn't want to over write my current files. I added the twenty ten theme and now the blog works.
    Thank you for your quick and helpful response :-)

    That'd do it. :) New blogs are set to use the new default theme (TwentyTen) by default. No theme, white screen. :)
