[resolved] No Network setup option under tools (15 posts)

    As i was having problem with subdirectory blogs [ http://wordpress.org/support/topic/unable-to-login-to-sub-blogs-wp-admin?replies=11 ]

    Now i see there is No Network setup option under tools in network admin.

    i enabled multisite in wp-config.php
    all sub directory blogs are working for readers but only admin cannt go to wp-admin or users cannt loggin to sub directory blogs

    is that mean something wrong with htaccess / wp-config or webhost is not enabled multisite option...?

  2. Moved the other post to Multisite (we often don't see posts that aren't in this section).

    Can you get to yourdomain.com/wp-admin/network ?

    yes.

    thats comes under Network Admin.
    i can see sites/users etc

    but i cannt go to wp-admin of subblogs

  4. This concerns me:

    Now i see there is No Network setup option under tools in network admin.

    Do you have BOTH
    define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);
    AND
    define('MULTISITE', true);

    in your wp-config.php? (you should).

    Did you install correctly? That is you added the Allow multisite line, refreshed, got the network setup info under the MAIN install, copied more lines, logged out and back in, and then went to network admin?

    if i add both
    define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);
    define('MULTISITE', true);

    main site goes down, for wp-login it says database is not available but sub directory blogs are visible and all blogs are readable

    if i add
    define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);
    whole site is readable,but other than main blog other blogs login disabled and No network under TOOLS.

    This is what i have now.
    define('DB_COLLATE', '');
    define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);
    /** define('MULTISITE', true); */
    define( 'SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', false );
    $base = '/';
    define('DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', 'mynation.net' );
    define('PATH_CURRENT_SITE', '/' );
    define('SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1);
    define('BLOGID_CURRENT_SITE', '1' );

    to sub directory blogs to work.
    on web server wild card to be enabled ? or just mod_rewrite is enough.

    as all blogs are working only wp-admin is disabled on sub directory blogs

  7. Well ... Not having both is why there's No Network setup option under tools.

    To ask again: Did you install correctly? That is you added the Allow multisite line, refreshed, got the network setup info under the MAIN install, copied more lines, logged out and back in, and then went to network admin?

    Thank you for your reply IPsteNU;

    I have been using WP since 2006; it was single site installation then made it MU and updated manually every time WP with latest release. but never faced this kind of problem.

    i think Network setup in tools comes only once when you install Network sites.

    Now im moved new web host and updated to 3.3.1 before it was on 3.2 and working fine on other VPS host.

    I can see all my network sites. only problem wp-admin of network site, and users of the network site cannt loggin, nor comment, in some blogs individual articles cannt open.

    i tried disabling all plugins,themes, index pages in plugin dir, and all possible things.

    i think something is missing in wp-config or htaccess.

    This is my .htaccess file
    ----------------------
    # BEGIN WordPress

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]

    # uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$2 [L]

    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?wp-admin$ $1wp-admin/ [R=301,L]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule ^[_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $1 [L]
    RewriteRule ^[_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/(.*\.php)$ $1 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    # END WordPress

  9. You don't have to funky capitalize my name :D It's just Ipstenu, capital I.

    I have been using WP since 2006; it was single site installation then made it MU and updated manually every time WP with latest release.

    At what point did you switch to WPMU? And do you really mean you were using WPMU before the 3.0 merge? These things REALLY matter.

    i think Network setup in tools comes only once when you install Network sites.

    Nope. Network setup comes in tools when you ADD THAT LINE to your wp-config.php with Multisite. I, literally, wrote a book on it.

    Now im moved new web host and updated to 3.3.1 before it was on 3.2 and working fine on other VPS host.

    That was silly. You should have moved, tested, then upgraded, but, unless you have a good backup of everything, we can't go back to that. Do you have a backup?

    Your .htaccess looks fine. I would either restore from my pre-upgrade move, or copy up the 3.2 files (you can download them from http://wordpress.org/download/release-archive/ ) and see if that works. THEN upgrade.

    At this point, there's NO way to know if

    1) Your new server is setup wrong.
    2) Your move was with corrupted files/DB
    3) It's a plugin/theme conflict.

    So let's go back and rule out as much as we can. Will your initial setup work, with 3.2, on the new server?

    You may as well also check if AllowOverride is set to ALL on the new server.

    I always test new version before upgrade.
    on current new server i tested 3.3.1 by creating network blogs and its working fine.
    Thats why i upgraded to 3.3.1
    i have backups and now reinstalled back to 3.2. but same old problem.

    for fresh install it works fine on this server only when i import data from backup it failes.

    is there any way just import data instead old settings,after creating network/blogs.

    as i already lost 2 weeks.

  11. You keep adding more and more layers to the story.

    Please answer me this:

    At what point did you switch to WPMU? And do you really mean you were using WPMU before the 3.0 merge? These things REALLY matter.

    Here's an example of what someone else did:

    "I installed WordPress 2.8, regular old single install, and upgraded to 2.9 and 3.0. When I got to 3.0, I activated Multisite. This worked fine, so I kept upgrading to 3.2. Then I moved everything to a new server. Everything worked, so I upgraded to 3.3. NOW I have a problem."

    See how that works? Now I know exactly what's happened :) I can't read minds, so please, help me out by explaining what you did to get to 3.2 on your OLD server first. When did you 'switch' to multisite? Did you actually convert a site in the 2.x days to WPMU, install WPMU itself, or upgrade at the 3.x stage?

    ALL THESE THINGS MATTER WHEN DEBUGGING.

    Yes i was using WPMU before 3.0 merger.

    As my 1st WP was just few pages so i just copied the content to WPMU when my user wanted blog for them. so i can say i started with WPMU only till it merged in 3.0, then as WP3 updated i updated too, right now i am on my old version 3.2.1

    As i remember my 1st WPMU version was 1.2 and always was on WPMU only

    Now im totally back on my last working files other than changes in wp-config.php,
    added chnages are
    define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);
    define( 'SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', false );
    and 4 more line, as themes were not working
    define WP_HOME
    define WP_SITEURL
    define WP_CONTENT_URL
    define WP_PLUGIN_URL
    in my old wp-config.php i was having
    define ('VHOST', 'no');
    if ($base == 'BASE') .......*
    and define ( 'NOBLOGREDIRECT', 'http://mynation.net/');

    i think its something to do with SLUGs or rewrite rules.
    now blogs are not working without / in the end, before it was working bothway [ eg: http://mynation.net/abio ]
    and those blogs permalinks i kept default are not working [ eg : http://mynation.net/tips/ and http://mynation.net/rules/ - showing main page only. ]
    and those who have SLUGs are working [ eg : http://mynation.net/voice/ and http://mynation.net/docs/ and all other blogs ]

    Hope this will give you some clue what went wrong or BUG.

    Thank you very much for your Support.

    I can creat new Blogs from network admin and access its wp-admin that works normal.
    my current wp-config.php has no
    define('MULTISITE', true);

    i also renamed one of my old blog (eg : http://mynation.net/rules/ to http://mynation.net/ruless/ ) and created another new blog with old name rules but i cannt go to its wp-admin

    i think its alergic to old Blog names....!

  14. my current wp-config.php has no
    define('MULTISITE', true);

    As long as you leave that line out, you will continue to have issues. It will NOT WORK without it.

    If you used to have WPMU and then you converted to multisite (which was NOT NEEDED) then you mucked something up in there.

    You may need to hire someone to sort out whatever went wrong because we cannot continue to help without being able to look at your installation. which neither of us can do for free. (that was not an offer. that was explaining we are volunteers and only do so much.)

    it was working in my previous site without
    define('MULTISITE', true);

    Even now i can create new blogs with new names without
    define('MULTISITE', true);

    if something was wrong with my installation then i would have not able to create new blogs.

    anyway thank you for your help and i will let you know within a week.
