Support » Localhost Installs » Multisite fail after moving to new server

  • Hey all,

    I’m having some issues getting my multisite installation running. I have 4 sites on my multisite server. I can log in to my “main” instance, but when I try to manage the dashboard on any of the “sub” sites, I get a 404 error: “The requested URL /somesubsite/wp-admin/ was not found on this server.”

    I’ve looked at the DB, and all the sites have entries there, as is evidenced by the tables that have “wp_1_posts”, “wp_2_posts”, etc.

    in the main directoy, I only see 3 directories: wp-admin, wp-content and wp-includes. Where would the supporting files for each sub-site be? Maybe something didn’t get copied over?

  • There ain’t no special or extra directories with a multisite except for the media uploads. Since the main site works my guess is the subsites are not mapped into the server in the case of a subdomain based multisite.

    On a subdirectory setup, I’d think everything should work.

    The only other place I could think to look would be the htaccess file. I imagine you copied that over verbatim though.

    So if the server was comparable and you duplicated the file structure the same then the only thing I could see causing this would be a subdomain issue.

    You did change the A record pointer for the wildcard and/or subdomains in DNS if you were running subdomains?

    also worth mentioning the .htaccess file. Did you copy it? On Linux/MAC it’s a hidden file, so you might have overseen it.
