Have a new site, in construction.
I created a network fully following the instructions. Created a new site successfully.
I need files to be accessible in the media library to use the "featured image" feature. I can upload them and they exist in the relevant directory (together with all the wp-created thumbnnails), however they appear broken in the media library and are not accessible.
I searched the forums and found a few threads dealing with this problem, but they're all either fixed by means that did not help me, or were not addressed at all. Naturally I might have missed something there.
Another problem, probably related - I tried to create a new site to see if there media uploads would work, but though the site creation process was smooth, when I try to go to the site dashboard it just opens the main site.
I entered the url manually (http://mnarc.com/sitename/wp-admin/), and received the message:
"One or more database tables are unavailable. The database may need to be repaired."
I entered the repair database page and ran repair, but it failed to repair all the problems that were found:
wp_5_posts: Table 'wordpress.wp_5_posts' doesn't exist
wp_5_comments: Table 'wordpress.wp_5_comments' doesn't exist
wp_5_links: Table 'wordpress.wp_5_links' doesn't exist
wp_5_options: Table 'wordpress.wp_5_options' doesn't exist
wp_5_postmeta: Table 'wordpress.wp_5_postmeta' doesn't exist
wp_5_terms: Table 'wordpress.wp_5_terms' doesn't exist
wp_5_term_taxonomy: Table 'wordpress.wp_5_term_taxonomy' doesn't exist
wp_5_term_relationships: Table 'wordpress.wp_5_term_relationships' doesn't exist
wp_5_commentmeta: Table 'wordpress.wp_5_commentmeta' doesn't exist
Thank you for the help
