    Hello Guru's

    I have a site [www.mydomain.com.au]that also has a multisite and I need both to go live.
    I am lost as to how to do it

    Obviously my 1hr 30 mins searching has got me frustrated :-)

    Help please.

  2. I don't have any idea what you mean by "go live" - how are they not live right now?

    Thank you Mika, lol, the site cannot be seen as yet, everything is still in the WP sub Directory.
    I need to be able it to be seen by everyone.

    I hope that makes sense.

    You have a normal install of WordPress, and a multisite install of WordPress installed on your webhost? If they are installed on your webhost, then they are already live. Unless you have a maintenance mode plugin installed, anyone can already access it. Also, a link to your site would help us better understand your problem.

    Thank you Marc.

    I had to copy the index.php file from the WP Folder to the Root Directory and do an edit in it ie: Change the line that says:
    require( dirname( __FILE__ ) . '/wp-blog-header.php' );
    to the following, using your directory name for the WordPress core files:
    require( dirname( __FILE__ ) . '/wordpress/wp-blog-header.php' );

    I have done just that yet when I type in the www address it does not load and only will load the site when I place the Directory that has the WP Install.

    http://www.dartsaustralia.com.au gives nothing and loads this:

    Many thanks guys, if I can get this part to work I may be a happy little vegemite again :-)

    When I visited http://dartsaustralia.com.au/, I got an "Error establishing a database connection" error. But, http://dartsaustralia.com.au/dartsauwp/ loads ok.

    Also, have you tried reinstalling WordPress via the updates page.

    Thank you Marc, I will try that, or it looks like I may have to start all over again :-(

    I thought that I was getting the DB error because of how I have set up the multisite.

    I appreciate you at least trying to help me Marc, much appreciated.

    Alright. Tell me how it goes.

  9. Just FYI, you cannot (easily) do that with Multisite.

    Are you really running multisite in a subfolder and trying to move it to look like it's running out of the root folder like v ia this? https://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory
