Support » Networking WordPress » Creating a Network problem please help.

  • i have purchased a domain and a webspace, i want to host 3 different websites with one domain, by seperating them into different subfolders.

    i looked up on the Codex and found “Create a Network” tutorial. i followed it and edited wp-config and .htaccess as instructed, but now i can’t log into wp-admin.

    when i type in it redirects to this werid URL

    i think the .htaccess is incorrect. how may i fix this?

    the .htaccess i have right now is
    ‘RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase //
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [L]

    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?wp-admin$ $1wp-admin/ [R=301,L]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ – [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) home/marianco/public_html/$2 [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*\.php)$ home/marianco/public_html/$2 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]’

    and for the wp-config i added

    ‘/* Multisite */
    define(‘MULTISITE’, true);
    define(‘SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL’, false);
    define(‘DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘’);
    define(‘PATH_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘//’);
    define(‘SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE’, 1);
    define(‘BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE’, 1);’

    i can’t log into my wp-admin no more. what’s the problem?

    my website runs fine if i don’t do the multisite function, what’s the best solution to host 3 wordpress sites on a single web space besides this?

    now when i do it redirect the URL to

    how can i fix this?

    This was the right behaviour:

    when i type in it redirects to this werid URL

    What did you do in the meantime?

    You only need WP Network if your 3 websites will be developed using WP. Otherwise just use subdomains with your hosting to run separate websites.

    State with URLs how you see the public accessing your 3 websites.

    Confirm server errors caused by .htaccess by temporarily renaming it.

    WP Network Admin dashboard->Settings->Network Setup actually recommends RewriteBase // in .htaccess ??
    try RewriteBase /
    And Settings->Network Setup actually recommends
    define('PATH_CURRENT_SITE', '//'); in wp-config.php ??
    try define(‘PATH_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘/’);

    If you post some path info it might be helpful, as in the
    webserver’s document root folder for
    Is it home/marianco/public_html?

    This is what’s wrong: RewriteBase //

    Remove it and make it JUST RewriteBase /
