Cannot login to second website on multi-site installation

  • Same issue here, original site is working perfectly both on the front-end and on the back-end, and while the second site front-end displays properly, I cannot login to the back-end (admin dashboard) for the second site. Any ideas?

    I have found a possible solution (this worked for me): when you create a sub-domain as a new site, then repoint to a parked domain, you lose the ability to update your site via the dashboard (that was my issue). When I repoint the site to the subdomain, the management console appears again and works fine. In hindsight, it seems like a no-brainer, but it cost me 4 hours of before I realized it was something simple.

    Created a site as a subdomain -> http://site2.site1.com

    Repointed to -> http://site2.com (console doesn’t work)

    So this raises a different issue: When using Multi-site, creating sites under subdomains is very straight-forward, but creating sites under separate parked domains is not clear to me. I’m sure there’s a way to do it. Any ideas?

    Thanks… Paul
