    I've gone through and set up WP multisite. everything seems to be in place. My main site and new multi site are listed in My Sites menu. But when I go to the dashboard of my new site i get this message:
    Internal Server Error

    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

    Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@breathe.greggmcgough.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

    More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

    Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    Apache Server at breathe.greggmcgough.com Port 80

    When I visit the site I get this:

    Index of /

    Apache Server at breathe.greggmcgough.com Port 80

  3. Did you set up breathe.greggmcgough.com as a subdomain with it's own folder, instead of pointing it back to the public_html folder?

    Yes. And yes.

    Uh, I think. Explain please.

  6. Okay.

    When you setup a subdomain, by DEFAULT, it points to /public_html/subdomainname or the equivilent, sometimes it's /home/www/, but the important thing is that 'subdomainname' slug at the end.

    Multisite needs you to have it point to /public_html/, i.e. where WP is installed, so that all traffic for breathe is sent to greggmcgough.com, and WordPress magically translates it.

    Thinking may that WP isn't stored in my root directory. Any chance that I can send you a screen capture from Coda menu?


  8. If WP isn't in root, subdomains will never work.

    Post the image on cloud.ly or imageshack and link to it :)

    link to screen capture of wordpress imbed.


    Right or wrong for multisite use?


  10. WordPress is installed in the root (See the www? That's your root)

    Your subdomains need to point to that www location.
