[resolved] Multisite gone, then Warning: An existing WordPress network was detected (3 posts)

    I am (was) a happy user of Multisite WP. Installed through Fantastico, enabled multisite, then eventually upgraded until 3.1.
    Fantastico reported WP was out of date and proposed to update. I clicked on OK (id it on other occasions, no problem - besides, the hoster requires all Fantastico update warnings to be taken care of).
    Disaster: users complain their blogs is gone. I can log on to the blog, but is single site. DB has been restored, users are therz, but I can't see the sites.
    .htaccess for multisite still in place.
    I added "define( 'WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true );"
    And now WP detects the existing network, but I don't know how to access it - add it to the site again etc.

  2. Blame Fantastico - it has no idea about multisite.

    Go visit the Tools -> Network settings again. no, you do NOT have to set it up again, you just have to put the stuff back in the wp-config.php file and the .htaccess file.

    Hi Andrea,

    Thank you! I took a deep breath, added everything to the config file, and the blogs are back.
