  • Resolved xorred


    Here is my wp config:

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

    Every time I try to create a new site, say, “testwinery”, it creates a site with a name of “winetrailers_com_3testwinery/”

    Now… I know this is extremely weird and have absolutely no idea where it came from (brand new install) or how to solve it… any ideas?

  • oh, and when I click on “dashboard” for that site, it takes me to “http://winetrailers.comwinetrailers_com_3testwinery/wp-admin/”

    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    # uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$2 [L]

    RewriteRule  ^[_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/(.*\.php)$ $1 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    Oh… when going to (testwinery is (was) supposed to be the sub-sit ename) and changing a theme, it changes the main site theme…

    Check the rest of your WP-config file for another entry of BASE.

    You were right!

    Reason: the Dreamhost f**ktards who did not understand that their one-clickinstalls were so screwed up they had 2 $base variables…

    Bingo 🙂 DreamHost does that, alas, and it screws up a lot of people :/ this is why auto installers are bad.

    And yes, I told them when 3.0 came out, they said they’d look into it and it is still not fixed.
