    Hi,

    I have allowed multisite but nothing under the Tools tab is changing.

    Thanks

  2. What did you add, to what, and where? :)

    The bottom part of my wp-config.php looks like this

    /**
     * For developers: WordPress debugging mode.
     *
     * Change this to true to enable the display of notices during development.
     * It is strongly recommended that plugin and theme developers use WP_DEBUG
     * in their development environments.
     */
    define('WP_DEBUG', false);
    define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);
    define( 'MULTISITE', true );
    define( 'SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', false );
    $base = '/';
    define( 'DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', 'bostinno.com' );
    define( 'PATH_CURRENT_SITE', '/' );
    define( 'SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1 );
    define( 'BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1 );
    define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M');
    /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */
  4. Why did you add the whole thing in there? The directions tell you to only add define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);

    Re-read http://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network please :)

    You add the one line, THEN the tools tab shows up, then you add the rest. It has to happen in that order for a reason.

    I did what you said. The tab under tools showed up. I installed a network and then put the rest of the lines into wp-config and .htaccess but now under the 'My Sites' tab at the top there is no section for 'Network Admin', just the two sites I have. I need to add two to three more sites. Is there a way to do this without the 'Network Admin' tab? Or do you know why it is not appearing?

    Thanks a bunch

    So I reinstalled multisite but now when I go to add my new site it says that the site already exists, however if I try to navigate to it I get a 404

    Basically what my ultimate goal entails is instead of having the sites localhost (which is the bostinno site), localhost/xchange and localhost/hollenberg to have localhost/bostinno,localhost/xchange and localhost/hollenberg all on one network

    [Note to above] Because right now I have a wordpress installation in each folder but I want just one with the three sites running off of it

  9. I installed a network and then put the rest of the lines into wp-config and .htaccess but now under the 'My Sites' tab at the top there is no section for 'Network Admin', just the two sites I have.

    Sorry... what? The 'two sites' part doesn't make sense.

    If you installed a network, it doesn't come with any sites except the one you started with.

    Ya sorry ignore that. It was from before I tried to reinstall multisite. Now I have two sites. One at localhost and one at localhost/xchange. But I still have wordpress installations for both. Also, under the 'My Sites' tab I have Network Admin and Bostinno (which is the site under localhost). Why is my xchange site not appearing under 'My Sites' tab? Is it supposed to show up there? If I go to 'Network Admin'->'Sites' it shows up as '/xchange/' underneath my first site, which appears as '/'.

    Thanks again

  11. Why is my xchange site not appearing under 'My Sites' tab? Is it supposed to show up there?

    If your ID is the admin of the site, yes. Otherwise, no. My Sites lists the sites that you, personally, are a member of. The network admin can see all sites, but not all sites are listed.

    Now I have two sites. One at localhost and one at localhost/xchange. But I still have wordpress installations for both.

    Separate installations? That will cause problems.

    So how do I go about getting the xchange site on the first installation in localhost? So that I can delete the second one

  13. It's a little tricky, so do this carefully.

    I'm going to refer to your sites as the Multisite and the Stand Alone. The Multisite is your Multisite, and the StandAlone is the xchange that's it's own install.

    First: On the multisite make sure you have a site named xchang2 (yes, that's xchange with the e swapped for a 2). If you already have a site named xchange, just rename it in Network Admin -> Sites (hover over the site and click edit). There's a check box to change 'both' URLs. Make sure you check it.

    Now, go to the stand alone site and export the content. Save the file to your desktop.

    Go back to xchang2 on the Multisite and import that file. You may need to install the WP Importer.

    Rename the standalone folder to xchange-OLD

    On Multisite, name xchang2 back to xchange.

    Then in your DB, do a search and replace. Search for xchang2, replace with xchange

    Have a beer.
