  • you had a working installation 1st?

    can you log in to database with phpmyadmin and check if tables are there and are correctly prefixed?


    It was working before on a single site bases. I am now trying to set up a multisite website.

    The tables are all there.

    I also have some other errors which may be having an impact on the above and below are the suggestions wordpress has given me. The problem is I can’t seem to find the files in my public_html directory on my control panel. I’m probably not looking in the right place.

    1. Sub-domain sites work with the use of wildcard subdomains. This is a
    Apache must be configured to accept wildcards.

    Open up the httpd.conf file or the include file containing the VHOST entry for
    your web account.
    Add this line:
    ServerAlias *
    In the DNS records on your server, add a wildcard subdomain that points to
    main installation. It should look like:
    A *’

    ‘2. Create a blogs.dir directory under /wp-content/
    This directory is used to store uploaded media for your additional sites and
    must be writable by the web server. They should be CHOWNed and CHMODed the
    as your wp-content directory.’
    3. Add the following to your .htaccess file in
    > /home/m…/public_html/, replacing other WordPress rules:
    > 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]


    From a novice.


    Can anyone help.
