Support » Networking WordPress » Can't Access Multisite Back-ends

  • Resolved Heather


    Sorry for posting this in the incorrect area.

    I had multiple sites installed on WP 3.0.1 and everything has been working fine for weeks. This afternoon, our servers HTTP service was down for about five minutes, when it was restarted, WordPress is giving me 404 errors when trying to access any of the site’s backend areas.

    I can access the main backend, and all the sites are up and running, but something isn’t registering any of the sub-domains.

    .htaccess hasn’t changed and the DNS wildcard settings haven’t changed.

    Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    The HTTP service may have reverted back to defaults, so it’s not actually *reading* the htaccess file now.

    Can you access it yourself, or do you have some support techs that can handle that?

    Thanks for the response. I checked the settings in https.conf, and made sure that * was listed in the Server Alias line. I’m wondering if I should restart my Http or DNS service?

    YES! You are my new favorite person in the world. You were right!

    I added the ServerAlias *.mydomain on a separate line then restarted my HTTP. And it works!

    Thanks Andrea – you’re the best 🙂
