    I want to go to the Dashboard of a multi site I should go to:
    http://casestudies.seattlepublishing.com/blog/wp-admin/

    Why is there a /blog/ folder in there?

    Where is WP actually installed?

    Blog.seattlepublishing was the original wordpress site before multi-site was installed/configured. I’m not sure how that is built out or why blog is in there.

    wp is installed as a subdomain of seattlepublishing.com

    So WP is installed in Blog.seattlepublishing.com ?

    correct

    The WP-Application is installed in a subdirectory of the main site, seattlepublishing.com. We’re using apache and virtual hosts to point the subdomain blog.seattlepublishign.com to the sub diirectory.

    Okay, so I have to explain the basis of some WP stuff and if you know this, I apologize, but lacking actual psychic powers, I don’t know what you do know 🙂

    WordPress bases Multisite out of where it’s installed, so if you have WP installed and running from blog.seattlepublishing.com then the ROOT of your install is blog.seattlepublishing.com and the fact that it’s in /public_html/blog/ doesn’t actually matter for WP.

    Because of THAT you should never see /blog/ in your subdomains, so the fact that you have http://casestudies.seattlepublishing.com/blog/ means you’re going to have to handle Multisite in a more annoying way than normal.

    To have subdomains when you’re installed in a subdomain, you have to have Multisite make subfolders and then map subdomains.

    So you do this: blog.seattlepublishing.com/casestudies/

    Then you put the subdomain casestudies.seattlepublishing.com so it points to /public_html/blog/ in your vhosts – basically you want to make sure it draws its files as if it too was blog.seattlepublishing.com and one was an alias for the other.

    Finally, to get the site working right, you need to map the domain casestudies.seattlepublishing.com to the site casestudies – this is normally done via this plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-mu-domain-mapping/
