Support » Fixing WordPress » MultiSite on Windows – CSS not being applied

  • I’ve just installed a fresh Multisite WordPress installation on to Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise. This is a test box and I’m using localhost as my root domain. I’m using subdirectories, which is what I’ll use in production. WordPress 3.1 is installed to the root (c:\inetpub\wwwroot) without it’s own directory.

    I am able to create sites but the themse I apply do not render. When viewing source and look at an element, say the header image on tentwenty, I see the path as:


    When I put that into a browser I get a 404 error.

    The detailed error information is:

    Module IIS Web Core
    Notification MapRequestHandler
    Handler StaticFile
    Error Code 0x80070002
    Requested URL http://localhost:80/content
    Physical Path C:\inetpub\wwwroot\content
    Logon Method Anonymous
    Logon User Anonymous

    There is no ‘content directory under wwwroot so I’m at a bit of a loss as to why it is rendering like that.

    Any ideas on what needs to be done to resolve this issue?

    Thank you!

  • I should add that there is no ‘test’ directory made either so when I try to add a post it throws a 404 on that as well.

    resolved! This issue was resolved by alter Rule 5 as suggested in a post elsewhere.

    Rule 5 should look like this:
    <action type="Rewrite" url="{R:1}" />

    kansascoder – Thank you for this, it was driving me nuts
