  • In a fresh domain I installed WP3.0b1.

    I imported my blogger file and got that all working fine.

    I upgraded to WP3.0b2 and that seemed to go fine.

    I implemented the MU using andrea_r’s tutorial (king tut?) and that went fine.

    I created another blog snowwolf and that went fine, made test posts, comments, etc.

    I created another blog called /blog/. But that blog seems to mirror the original blog. If I activate a plugin in the original it activates in /blog/. If I make a post in the original it shows up in /blog/. If I make a post in /blog/ it shows up in the original blog. If I deactivate a plugin in /blog/ it deactivates in the original too. If I go to:

    I properly get the front page of my original blog.

    If I go to:

    I get the wrong page of /blog/ instead of the front page.

    How weird. All the while, snowwolf continues to work fine.

    I made another blog x to test if I could duplicate this again but can’t. Ugh. I hate unduplicateable bugs.

    Any ideas on what I did wrong that has caused two blogs to have schizophrenia?

    /blog is the default name of your initial blog. That is, all posts for are already using the /blog/ folder. You shouldn’t have been able to use that for a blog name.

    You’ll need to rename the second blog to something else (news, updates, etc etc).

    In the future, they plan to let us rename the initial blog directory.

    Thank you, Ipstenu. That was it. I changed blog to blog2 to fix it too. My that has a nice ring to it. Poetry aside. This explains another problem I had had on another install. Thanks.

    Drat. This problem just got worse. I renamed the second blog from ‘blog’ to ‘blog2’ ins the Super Admin. Going to still works fine except my custom header photo is missing (2010 theme). It had been fine before. I verified that it is in the appropriate directory. But it is worse. Now when I got to a post, such as

    I get:

    Not Found
    The requested URL /blog/2010/05/apple-blossoms/ was not found on this server.
    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


    gives the same result.

    If I change the Settings-Permalinks to the default (I had the year/month/post) so the links are like this:

    Apple Blossoms

    then it works except the header photo is still missing in action.

    I tried changing the name of that second errant ‘blog2’ back to ‘blog’ but that does not help.

    All plugins are deactivated.

    You need mod_rewrite enabled on the server itself. that’s how the subfolder blogs are created, via rewrite rules.

    just tell your webhost pretty permalinsk don’t work in WordPress. They shoudl fix it.

    Hmm… I have mod_rewrite enabled so that isn’t it. This is all on the same server in a reseller WHM account using different CPanel accounts. Any other ideas before I ask the host? They are glacial to respond so I only want to submit one query a century. 🙂

    What’s in your .htaccess for WordPress?

    But if mod_rewrite is enabled, but not allowed to read your htaccess file, then your permalinks don’t work.

    AllowOverride FileInfo Options

    in the vhost entry for that web account shoudl fix it.
