Support » Networking WordPress » Multisite Subdoman Dashboard Issue

  • Within my multisite setup, I’m currently being redirected to my main website’s dashboard, instead of being sent to a subdomain dashboard.

    Here are the steps that I take:
    1) I go to the “My Sites” tab
    2) I go to “Main Page” and click on dashboard
    3) I am directed to the “Main Page” dashboard
    4) I go to the “My Sites” tab
    5) I go to “Another Page” (will end up being mainpage.com/anotherpage) and click on dashboard
    6) I am directed to the “Main Page” dashboard

    Why am I being directed to the “Main Page” dashboard instead of being directed to the “Another Page” dashboard?

    Side info:
    I am a super admin and I’m an admin on all the other pages that I’ve created.

    I’m not sure if I pulled a wrong move during the install, but any advice or help would be much appreciated. Thank you!

  • Hey!

    You write:

    instead of being sent to a subdomain dashboard.

    and then:

    will end up being mainpage.com/anotherpage

    Have you installed the network based on Sub-domains or Sub-directories? Do you have this issues also in the frontend or only in the backend? Could you please post the contents of your .htaccess?

    Cheers

    5k9m, thanks for being willing to help out!

    I set the multisite to be based on sub-directories and it seems that I have issues on the frontend and backend. Evenstill, I set this up previously and got differing, correct results.

    Here is the code in my .htaccess file:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [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).*) $2 [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*\.php)$ $2 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    Hey!

    Sorry for my late answer – was a long day at work yesterday.
    Well, as your .htaccess setup is right, my best guess would be a wrong wildcard subdomain setup. Your host might not allow to register subdomains on the fly, therefore, redirects all invalid calls to the main domain.

    I would suggest talking to your host – at least that’s the only reasonable issue I can think of in your case.

    No worries! Thank you so much for following up. I’ll definitely shoot a message to my host and see what’s up.

    Again, thank you for the help.
