[resolved] Clean MS install on subdomain has broken links (3 posts)

    Hi all.

    I'm trying to install MS on a subdomain with the option set to subdirectories. I've done 3 clean installs in a row.

    My problem is that each time, the sites come out as http://sub.domain.comDatabaseNameSiteName/

    I don't think I can blame it on my host because I got MS installed fine on my domain.

    Unless having MS installed on the domain would somehow conflict with the MS on the subdomain. The subdomain is running a separate WP install of WP from the main domain. I doubt this anyway.

    Might anyone know what's happening?

    I'm hosted on DreamHost. I think Andrea mentioned something about there being a problem with this but I can't find the right thread at the moment.

  2. Yep.

    Either do a manual install, not the one-click version, or :

    - open up the wp-config.php file
    - find the line at the bottom that says $base = dbname
    - remove that line & save

    Make a new blog/site and it should be fine. the older nonworking ones you can delete or fix. (I'd just delete them.)
