I got talked into installing sunrise and I can see the benefit, but....
There seem to be conflicting instructions on installing it. Here talks about normal plugin installation, whereas here talks about manual installation. Neither way let me go more than "installation". Also, there are 2 different lines that are listed to be added to wp-config.php, but not all tutorials mention both. There appears to be serious conflict in instructions.
As soon as either I installed the plugin, or added the sunrise line to wp-config.php, the site and admin login became unreachable. All I get is an error "No site defined on this host. If you are the owner of this site, please check Debugging a WordPress Network for help." I went there but I'm just even more confused. I am a very new WP user (I normally write in Joomla) and find WP really difficult in comparison. However I need to learn it and need to get this multisite thing going.
Can someone point to the correct installation procedure please? Also, how do I check whether my host has disabled this functionality? Thanks.
