Support » Networking WordPress » Enabled MultiSite, but "Network" option doesn't show up.

  • Hi all. I’ve don through all the instructions on enabling WordPress Network, and I’ve added this line: define(‘WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE’, true); to the wp-config.php file.

    However, I can’t get the network settings to show up. Any ideas?

  • Where did you add the line? Is it above the ‘stop edting here’ marker?

    make sure you have straight up and down quotes : ‘ and not curly ones which show up in Windows.

    Yup, checked all that and I did add before the “happy blogging!” line. Is there any way to debug this? I’ve never done a network setup before.

    Do you have define('WP_DEBUG', false); in your wp-config?

    If so, put the define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true); call right below that.

    Yup, that’s exactly where it is.

    paste us in the few lines of code around that chunk. (not the whole config file and for heaven’s sake not any passwords)

    Here ya go:

    [snip]
    define ('WPLANG', '');
    
    /**
     * For developers: WordPress debugging mode.
     *
     * Change this to true to enable the display of notices during development.
     * It is strongly recommended that plugin and theme developers use WP_DEBUG
     * in their development environments.
     */
    define('WP_DEBUG', false);
    define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);
    
    /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */
    
    /** Absolute path to the WordPress directory. */
    if ( !defined('ABSPATH') )
    	define('ABSPATH', dirname(__FILE__) . '/');
    [/snip]

    Now, I did notice that there’s a lot of posts where dreamhost users were having issues with network installs, but they’re old. This site is on DreamHost – that shouldn’t be an issue right?

    It could be dreamhost… are you on shared hosting?

    This site is on DreamHost – that shouldn’t be an issue right?

    Yes. That IS the issue. Go double check with their support team that they will allow you to enable multisite on that level of account.

    Because at one point they were crippling installs that tried to.

    Yes, it’s shared hosting, but apparently they support it now if you’re using the subdirectory install. I can’t imagine having the static IP would make network settings show up though, right?

    Thanks Andrea – looks like I’ll be calling support! I REALLY need to finish getting my own hosting going on Amazon’s EC2 …

    I can’t imagine having the static IP would make network settings show up though, right?

    f they coded a check in there somewhere, then yes. it’s entirely possible.

    Same issue – and I’m on EC2. I run several sites, including network sites.

    It seems like enabling network is a 50/50 bet. Sometimes it works elegantly, others not so much due to this issue where it doesn’t show up as an option.

    Right now I’m pulling my hair out because it simply won’t show even though it’s in the file:

    define('WP_DEBUG', false);
    
    define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);
    
    /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

    Please tell me I have a typo above?

    Restarting apache and all other little tricks (cache clearing, different browsers, etc) — nothing working. I really need to get multi-site running. GRRRRR.

    SilentLikeFish – on a side note, I’d be very interested in seeing how you have yourself set up on EC2 – I’ve been wanting to migrate that direction myself!

    @silentlikefish stick it higher up in the file
