    Like the title says, I get a 500 Internal Server Error when I click Dashboard links of newly created sites. Can someone please help? I’ve been struggling with this for quite some time.

  • I had an issue with the .htaccess on this one. Did you follow the setup and overwrite your .htaccess? – Mine was wrong as it HAD to be saved as ANSI and have the wordwrap UNSELECTED.

    I tried that but it didn’t work.

    What’s in your .htaccess?

    Subdomains or subfolders?

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteRule ^wp-admin$ wp-admin/ [R=301,L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule ^(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $1 [L]
    RewriteRule ^(.*\.php)$ $1 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    The wp-config file is set to use sub domains

    Do pretty permalinks work on your main site?

    I think so, check it out:

    You’re not using Subdomains.


    See how you have blog in there? That happens when you’re using subFOLDERS.

    I dont understand why. Heres the multisite code in my wp-config file:

    /* Multisite */
    define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);
    define('MULTISITE', true);
    define('SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', true);
    define('DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', '');
    define('PATH_CURRENT_SITE', '/');
    define('SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1);
    define('BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1);
    define( 'SUNRISE', 'on' );
    /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

    How do I make the multisite use subdomains?

    (BTW, thank you for helping me out!)

    Regardless, doesn’t work so you didn’t set up wildcard subdomains, certainly.

    If your using cpanel You need to put a * in the box in subdomains

    I followed the link and directions on that page to setup the wildcard using cPanel and things seems to be working finally.

    I also had subdomains and add-on domains configured in cPanel so I deleted all those first. I always thought a subdomain had to be present on the server before the wordpress multisite would work. I guess not, it only added confusion.

    But thank god that’s over with, thanks again guys!
