Support » Networking WordPress » "Create a Network…" page blank after removing Multisite; need to reinstall MS

  • Resolved Joe Banks



    I followed instructions for removing multisite, since DNS issues need to be cleared up with the site’s domain name, vs., and client decides on whether they will use subdomain or subfolder installation.

    At this time, I am simply attempting to access the initial page:

    Issue: There is no page set-up content beyond the following:

    Warning: Please deactivate your plugins before enabling the Network feature.
    Once the network is created, you may reactivate your plugins.

    Actions Taken To Date:

    * Restored back-up .htaccess and wp-config.php files

    * Removed these tables from the db via phpMyAdmin (subbing custom table prefix)


    * deactivated all plugins

    * Reinstalled WordPress 3.5.1

    * Re-saved Permalinks

    * Re-added to wp-config.php the following:

    define( 'WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true );


    Where could I go from here? What’s the issue? What am I missing?

    Got any mu-plugins?

    You can try force-offing them by renaming plugins to old-plugins

    Thanks, Mika.

    To answer your question: There were no mu-plugins/folder. However, I did still rename the plugins folder and refresh the page.

    And switched to the 2012 theme temporarily.

    And have added this to the theme functions.php, referencing a solution found elsewhere, since subfolder install is what the group now wants.

    add_filter( 'allow_subdirectory_install',
    create_function( '', 'return true;' )

    Perhaps I could just look under the hood for what /wp-admin/network.php is looking for/trying to do, to test further.

    Solution Found:

    It wasn’t a mu-plugins plugin, but a “drop-in” (Drop-ins) plugin (advanced-cache.php), that was preventing reinstall/install of WPMS.

    Thank you for your time!
