Support » Networking WordPress » IIS New Site has no CSS or Admin

  • Newbie.

    Today I installed WP 4.3.1 on Windows 10 and configured it for Multisite. The root site is just and it works great.

    I use the dashboard to create a new site, “Test2” and it appears. But when I visit it, there is no CSS or images. Clicking /Test2/wp-admin says 404.

    On the hard drive there is no /Test2 folder. There is just the root /wp-admin, /wp-contect etc.

    Why does WP let me create a site, but not create the folder for it or the supporting tools for it?

    Dear Google,

    In IIS this is the Web.Config needed for IIS to support Multisite when wp-ads won’t appear.
