    I am wits end....been trying to figure this out all day with no luck....really hope someone can help.

    I installed the multisite successfully. The main site works great. I have installed the them EASEL.

    I have created a second site, but I can't apply a theme because it wont' let me access the dashboard...I get the following error:

    The page isn't redirecting properly

    Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    The site is hosted by GoDaddy.

    a few questions: did you...

    • add the wildcard subdomain?
    • add the specified lines to your wp-config.php file?
    • add the specified lines to your .htaccess file?

    On-demand domain-based sites require the wildcard subdomains method. You can create additional sites manually in the same network using other methods.

    Whichever methods you use, you will need to configure your DNS (to map the domain name to the server's IP address) and server (to map the domain name to the WordPress installation directory). WordPress will then map the domain name to the site.

    WordPress must be installed in the root of your webfolder (i.e. public_html) for subdomains to work correctly. They will not work from within a subdirectory.

    dohman,

    I did not install in the root folder....I created a folder named "wordpress" in the root directory and installed it there.

    Think that is the problem?

  4. You can't have subdomains while WP is installed in a subfolder.

    It's POSSIBLE that you can if you make WP run 'in root' (i.e. installed in public_html/wordpress, but running from domain.com) but I don't know anyone who's done that yet.
