Support » Networking WordPress » 3.2 / mu setup

    Created a brand new 3.2 wp site. Followed the instructions for setting it up as multi-site/creating a network.

    If I go to wp-admin/network.php it says “An existing WordPress network was detected.”

    However, when I’m logged in, I don’t see a drop down menu or anything showing me as Superadmin as shown here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Network_Admin_Settings_Screen

    my .htaccess file is what it should be, per what it gave me.

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    
    # uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$2 [L]
    
    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?wp-admin$ $1wp-admin/ [R=301,L]
    
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule  ^[_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $1 [L]
    RewriteRule  ^[_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/(.*\.php)$ $1 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    and my wp-config.php has exactly what was provided.

    /** Enable Multi Site */
    define( 'MULTISITE', true );
    define( 'SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', false );
    $base = '/';
    define( 'DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', ' ADBSDFD.com' );
    define( 'PATH_CURRENT_SITE', '/' );
    define( 'SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1 );
    define( 'BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1 );

    What could I be missing? Thanks!

    When you made the new site, did you do it on a new database?

    Yes sir. I guess my point in saying it was new is that nothing has been created yet. The base site was working I then set it up multi-site/network. There are no posts to be concerned with, etc. So if I have to destroy something, not a big deal. I just can’t seem to figure out what’s missing. Thanks!

    Once you set up the network, then yes… going back to the setup screen will tell you that a network is there.

    Go to network admin. /wp-admin/network/
    what happens?

    if I go to /wp-admin/network/ I get “You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.”

    If I go to wp-admin/network.php it says “An existing WordPress network was detected.” as I mentioned

    And I’m saying once you set up the network, that message is expected.

    Go look in the database. Are the extra tables there? wp_blogs etc?

    I see wp1_blogs and wp1_blog_versions I don’t recall what tables were there before to be honest.

    creativelasso

    (@creativelasso)

    ok – looking in the wp1_blogs I can see the base blog.

    So, I must not have permissions set properly for myself?

    Wait, you named your table prefix as wp1_?

    creativelasso

    (@creativelasso)

    yes… I customized that per one of the options when installing. It said it could be anything. Is that an issue?

    It can be. Having a number at the end of the prefix has been known to cause issues with sites :/

    creativelasso

    (@creativelasso)

    ugh – so is there a way to fix?

    creativelasso

    (@creativelasso)

    ok – so I went in, deleted everything and started again. used the default wp_ everything works correctly EXCEPT I still get “You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.”

    Are you sure you’re logged in as the admin?

    creativelasso

    (@creativelasso)

    lol absolutely… I can do whatever I want with plugins, etc. I’m the only user.

    I can do everything else in http://wp1.barbaraniven.com/wp-admin/

    just can’t get to http://wp1.barbaraniven.com/wp-admin/network/ and there is no drop down.

    Amusingly your domain is blocked at my office…

    Okay. MAKE A BACKUP BEFORE YOU DO THIS!

    Go into your database and look up the wp_usermeta table values for your user ID.

    wp_capabilities should be a:1:{s:13:"administrator";s:1:"1";}
