Multiblog with mapped domains: now new blogs cannot be created (4 posts)

    I have created a multiblog system with WP 3.0.1 in sub-directories, with 1 main blog and 4 sub-blogs.

    2 of the sub-blogs are mapped to a subdomain.

    All is working fine!

    Now I wanted to create a new sub-blog. I logged in as superadmin, created a new blog, named "testblog".

    But if I try to edit this blog, going to "edit" in superadmin, it does not show me any blog settings

    as it shows them to me at all other working sub-blogs:

    The administration area of this new created sub-blog points to the directory of the main blog:
    instead of the new:

    I don't know much about databases and PHP, but it seems to me, that this new sub-blog has not been created in database.

    I could create new sub-blogs before I have intalled the domain mapping (like here: http://ottopress.com/2010/wordpress-3-0-multisite-domain-mapping-tutorial/).

    But after the domain mapping installation, I cannot create new sub-blogs.

    Anybody an idea, what I have done wrong?

    ok, now I've figured out, that the only problem is, that the sub-blog, that is created AFTER the installing of the domain mapping, is NOT created in database.

    I have now go to my PHPmyAdmin and have there duplicated the tables of an existing old sub-blog, gave them the ID of the new sub-blog, changed the blog name and folder within the tables.

    And when I go now in superadmin -> blogs, then the new created sub-blog has its own admin area and can be called fine.

    So the only problem is, that the tables of the new sub-blog are not created in database, when creating the blog in the super admin area.

    Has anyone an idea, why and how to get a better solution than copying in phpMyAdmin tables?


  3. Not really, I can't reproduce this. I know it *should* be working as expected, but obviously in your case it isn't.

    Are there any other plugin running?

    oh yes, Andrea, thanks for that hint! I had some plugins enabled. I disabled them all and then I could create new blogs like before the mapping.
