Support » Networking WordPress » Multisite – No styles ?

  • Dmitriy Kabakov


    I need to create a WordPress multisite.

    But, all network’s sites running with no stylesheets.
    And I’m stuck here…

    Let’s say my current site:

    1. I’ve created a subdomain and installed a new version of WordPress (3.4.2):

    2. Using step-by-step tutorial (, I’ve created a multisite based on subdirectories.

    3. I have modified wp-config and htaccess file, then created a first site.


    define('MULTISITE', true);
    define('SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', false);
    $base = '/';
    define('DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', '');
    define('PATH_CURRENT_SITE', '/');
    define('SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1);
    define('BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1);


    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    # uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$2 [L]
    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?wp-admin$ $1wp-admin/ [R=301,L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule  ^[_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $1 [L]
    RewriteRule  ^[_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/(.*\.php)$ $1 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    Now dashboard or website itself have no styles.

    4. According to forum posts I’ve also modified a server part.

    <VirtualHost *:8888>
        DocumentRoot /var/www/multi
       <Directory /var/www/multi>
            AllowOverride All
        ErrorLog logs/multi-error_log
        CustomLog logs/multi-access_log common

    Can anybody help me with this issue?

    No styles means your .htaccess isn’t being read :/

    Try AllowOverride Fileinfo Options All (yes, I know)



    I was facing the same problem, and did copy the .htaccess code from here and it worked for me fine .. should work for you as well.

    I did try AllowOverride Fileinfo Options All, but caused 500 error.
