WPMU upgrade 2.9.2 -> 3.0 admin login problem (8 posts)

    I upgraded my WPMU site at http://erckhotels.com from WPMU 2.9.2 to WP 3.0.

    I followed Upgrading WPMU instructions:

  2. Move the blogs.php out of the /wp-content/ folder
  3. Update your htaccess rules to reflect this change
  4. and Create a Network -> Step 3 Allow Multisite instruction:

  5. Add define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true); to wp-config.php file
  6. When trying to access the Admin page http://erckhotels.com/wp-admin, I'm redirected to the admin page for one of my sub sites, http://rubys.erckhotels.com/wp-admin/?c=1

    What did I miss in the upgrade process?

  • and Create a Network -> Step 3 Allow Multisite instruction:
    # Add define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true); to wp-config.php file

    This step is not needed, and is also not listed at all in the instructions to follow. You are already running a network.

    Likely this is part of the problem.

    Are you also an admin on the rubys blog?

    ok - removed that and still having the same problem

    Are you also an admin on the rubys blog?

    Yep

    Under Dashboard -> My Blogs
    Primary Blog is rubys.erckhotels.com and it's the only blog listed there.

  • and it's the only blog listed there.

    Well, there's the problem. If you;re the Super Admin, the main domain needs to be listed there as well. Can you see the super admin menu?

    Have you disabled *all* the plugins, including the mu-plugins?

    No

    Didn't before I did the upgrade

  • Go look in your database, find the wp_sitemeta table (via phpmyadmin).
    Look at the site_admins table. It will show a username. Are you logging in with that username?
