Support » Networking WordPress » Cannot login to subsites

  • I’ve just installed my WordPress 3.4.1 and setuped my multisite network, but I failed to login to my second site.

    How I setuped the network:
    Generally I followed the instructions document Create A Network and created a domain-based network. I chose to use two independent first-level domains for the two sites. Both of the sites were accessible after the setup of the network.

    What problems I met:
    When I was logined as the super user, I made attempt to move from the dashboard of my primary site to that of the subsite. However, the Login page appears and asked me to login again. So I tried logining as either the super user or the admin of the subsite, but both resulted in returning to the Login Page. Meanwhile I can login to the dashboard of the network or the primary site.

    What I have tried:
    I first checked if I have got the wrong password, so I purposely input a wrong password, and that gives the incorrect password warning, which means the loop mentioned above was not brought by a mistaken password.
    Then I recalled that it was a wide-spread problem four years ago when users upgrades WP 2.5 to WP 2.6 so that I began to search for solutions posted then. I’ve tried several of following so-called working solutions, but none of them works:
    Modifying the cookie configuration in wp-includes/pluggable.php
    Clear up the cache/cookies of my broswer
    Checking the siteurl and home value in wp_options of the database
    Checking the character codes in the database
    Disable all the plugins

    Looking forward to further solutions. Thanks a lot.

    Generally when it’s a brand new site, I tell people to start over.

    Install WP and make sure it works before you turn on Multisite. Can you set permalinks etc.

    Then go to Multisite. Make one site and test it. If you’re good, you can go forward 🙂
