I spent a fair bit of time scouring the forums before posting here.
Question I have is - if the problem is with the host provider - in this case Globat - what do I need them to do? It is a shared environment, they supposedly run the Apache mod_rewrite, and use Simple Scripts for installing Word Press (which I did not use).
The issue I'm having is the Network Admin button does not appear in the top right hand corner beside the user name (admin), nor is there any multi-site functionality. When clicking on Tools -> Network it prompts me with a warning saying a network is already running.
Here are the common issues that I know it is NOT:
wp-config (yes the multi-site script is in the middle)
.htaccess is in the specified folder
No plugins except for what come with the install
Theme is Twenty Ten
All tables are created in MySQL (including wp_blogs, wp_blog_versions, wp_registration_logs, wp_signups, wp_site, wp_sitemeta, wp_usermeta, wp_user)
Thank you for your help.
