    I am trying to install Multi Site and had Multi Site a while ago. I thought I deleted it. I am getting the message

    Warning: An existing WordPress network was detected.Please complete the configuration steps. To create a new network, you will need to empty or remove the network database tables.

    I don't have the original .htaccess file and I don't know where network database tables are I don't want to delete things that I don't know what they are.

    I just want to add I've deleted these tables in my database and I deleted the line enabled multisite in my wp-config file. my .htaccess file is blank so I don't have anything to restore that to. So I am really stuck.

    wp_blogs
    wp_blog_versions
    wp_registration_log
    wp_site
    wp_sitemeta
    wp_signups

  3. Did you delete all the lines in the wp-config?

    I have. I reinstalled WordPress and reinstalled MultiSite. Although now I have two websites in my network. The main one uses my theme but the other one does not. When I visit the site it has no styles at all. I enabled the theme for the network so I thought it should work. When I click edit and then themes on the site with no styles it says Network enabled themes are not shown on this screen. If I click another there is still no style.

    You mean your sub-site doesn't show themes?

    Did you update your .htaccess correctly?

    yes that sub site does not show themes. I am not sure. I didn't do anything tot eh .htaccess file. What should I do? Thank you so much for your help too!

  7. I didn't do anything tot eh .htaccess file.

    Well that's a problem :)

    When you activated Multisite, it told you to edit the wp-config.php and .htaccess

    Go to yourdomain.com/wp-admin/network/setup.php

    You'll see what you should have done.
