[resolved] What's wrong with my installation? (4 posts)

    The problem I first met was “receiving no confirmation email after new user registration”, in troubleshooting I came across two different dashboards for network admin: one with site address “/wp-admin/network/” (case 1), the other with “wp-admin/”(case 2). The side bar menus of each are quite different,:
    In case 1 there are 6 menus: sites, users, themes, plugins, settings, updates.
    In case 2 there are 10 menus: post, media, links, pages, comments, appearance, plugins, users, tools, settings.
    The sub menus are also different, for example: under 'settings' only two items in case 1: network settings and network setup, but 8 items from 'general' to 'email' in case 2.

    Then I came to doubt if the installation was wrong. What should I do? Do I have to reinstall?
    Thanks a lot.

    To be more specific the title should be changed to "Two different dashboards for network admin?"

    This is the installation process:
    (install was made at the root directory of the site which was just aquired at godaddy.com, plan 'web hosting economy'.)

    step 1 - 4 follows https://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress
    1, Download and Extract.

    2, Create the Database and a User.

    2.1, Upload the files, two of which failed:
    wp-admin\css\install.css;
    wp-admin\includes\image.php.
    Re-upload and overwrite.

    3, Set up wp-config.php.

    4, Upload wp-config.php.

    step 5 follows https://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network

    step 6 follows http://codex.buddypress.org/getting-started/before-installing/

    There are six sub steps and the problem arises when it came to register and activate a new user, in which no confirmation email was received.
    In solving I happened to find there are two versions of dashboards which hold seemingly independable settings as I posted in the begining.

    Yes that is right as you have installed a Multisite network you will have two dashboards one is where is network where you will able install plugins and themes that all site in your network can use when you login as super admin

    When you go Case 2 dashboard you will notice that you can not install themes or plugins you can activate or deactivate.

    You will be able create multiple sites using subdomain or subfolder depending on what you chose when installing multisite network

    you can login on each site dashboard or manage them as super admin login by clicking on sites.

    Thank you! govpatel.

    Maybe because I am too used to the single site mode, it really confused me in the first place.

    I need to look into more docs to get familiar with it.
