Two WordPress Sites on MAMP - Dashboard Corrupted! (9 posts)

    I installed two wordpress folders in the htdocs folder of MAMP, and have a database for each wordpress instance. The first one works fine - I can log in to the dashboard and it works great. However, when I log into the dashboard of the second site, it doesn't work - it appears to have lost the CSS formatting - it's a bunch of unformatted HTML. Anybody know how to fix this??

    Verify that the URL's entered in the dashboard for the second site reflect the actual (and complete) path to the installation. You may need to view the source code from your browser to see the URL's being requested -vs- the URL in your address bar. If they don't match, you can quickly correct it directly from the database using phpMydmin.

    Excellent thanks, but I don't know how to 'view the source code from your browser to see the URL's being requested -vs- the URL in your address bar' - HOw do I do that? Thanks so much!!

    I'm assuming you might be using Safari, but this is a general "how to"

    How can I view the HTML code of web pages

    Hi, I should have been more clear....I know how to view the HTML source of a page I am viewing, but not really sure where the 'URL that is being requested' would be, so that I can compare it to what the URL in the address bar is. All I see is source HTML, with no URL - that is what I am confused about. Thanks again!!!

    I think I accidentally made it sound more confusing that it really is. Visit the site in question. Now look at the URL's to your WordPress installation in the source code. Do they match exactly what is in the browser address bar?

    If they do not match - for example, if you see the obvious lack of a sub-directory (the name of the folder you installed the site in) in the path, or some other inconsistency, then there is probably an error in your URL's in general settings in the dashboard, and you can use the info in the links I posted above to fix that.

  7. ClaytonJames - You can't edit the site URL in the general settings on Multisite ;)

    However, when I log into the dashboard of the second site, it doesn't work - it appears to have lost the CSS formatting - it's a bunch of unformatted HTML.

    That said, what Clatyton said was right. Where's the dash looking for the CSS?

    It should be http://domain.com/sitename/wp-includes/css/editor.css....

    If it's not then go to Network Admin -> Sites and edit the second site. What's the URL for that site look like?

    Is that what's happening? I guess I was thinking in terms of @Beckmania's initial description:

    I installed two wordpress folders in the htdocs folder of MAMP, and have a database for each wordpress instance.

    Did I miss a clue that indicates it's a network setup?

  9. Huh, no I did. But that said, the Multisite Section is for Networks Only :D

    So this is in in the wrong subforum ;) Moving to localhost!
