  • Resolved Anna


    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.

    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.)



    Ah great. Thanks very much Andrea! You are savior to everyone here on the MS boards.
