Support » Networking WordPress » Dashboard Multisite subdomains not working

  • Resolved stbauer


    I have created a Multisite setup by following the standard codex instructions.

    Within WP I’m able to create sites. However, when I go to the dashboard of the site, I do get the following error:

    Not Found
    The requested URL /wp-admin/ was not found on this server.
    Apache Server at Port 80

    This is in my .htaccess file

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    # uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$1 [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    and this is added to my wp-config.php file

    define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);
    define( 'MULTISITE', true );
    define( 'SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', true );
    $base = '/';
    define( 'DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', '' );
    define( 'PATH_CURRENT_SITE', '/' );
    define( 'SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1 );
    define( 'BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1 );

    Any suggestions what is necessary to do to get this fixed …

    Hint: Look at

    See how that’s not WordPress?

    You set up wildcard subdomains incorrectly. They need to point to where ever is installed.

    I have the same problem, my main site is named:

    and my fisrt secondary site is

    the main site is ok, but when I try to login the secondary the browser indicates that it doesn´t exist
    Inside the network panel it appears good by when I try to visit or edit, I can not have access to login page.

    thanks for your help

    I have included a extra line item in my DNS setting – type A-record – with the “*” and the same IP-address as the main site.

    Any suggestions of what I need to add there to ensure it will be directed to the same as the main domain?

    stbauer – It’s working now.

    Probably took a while for your DNS to propagate (technically it can take up to 72 hours).

    (jotadecma – please make your own topic)

    I have added also a subdomain via my Plesk Control and pointed that to httpdocs. By adding this, the subdomain is working

    I am new to multisite.
    I’ve created a multisite domain at (primary) and moved my WP blogs to this multisite.I called the moved WP blogs sub-blogs/sites. Most of these are domain mapped to subdirectories and seems to be working.

    I have two issues; Not sure whether they are related in terms of site re-direction and registration & login.
    1) the dashboard for the sub-blogs for the subscriber (registered account user) has ‘blank’ screen i.e. not all the dashboard modules are feeding through to the sub-blogs subscriber dashboard. See attached image.

    2) I use Multisite user registration manager v2.1.2 by Zaantar.
    The registration works fine.
    I tried to use the plugin WPMS Sidebar Login widget and also the WP Sidebat Login, both gave me issues, hence I’m using the Multisite user registration manager.
    However, I’ve not found a multisite login plugin (just login & no registration) that I can use with the Multisite user registration manager.
    Anyone has a plugin that just allow login/logout from user subscriber site (not login from the primary site)?
    Currently I am using a login template provided by suffusion theme (as I have 2 blogs using this template and it works fine for these sites in multisite but not for non-suffusion sites).

    I have not tweaked any files (i.e. .htaccess or config)

    Many thanks,

    Ooops. Here’s the dashboard snapshot at

    Many thanks,

    I have similar problem, the subdomain page is ‘not found’ while the main site is working ok.

    what’s the problem? I did it like and it does not work
