[Resolved] Network Admin Links Suddenly Not Working

  • I have a WP Multisite setup that was working great last week. Since then, no changes have been made, but I now can’t get into the Network Admin area. Everything else works great.

    For some reason, the URLs for the Network Admin section are redirecting to http//mysite.com/wp-admin/network/ (NO colon after “http”)

    They do this even if I try to enter them directly. Any ideas? Thank you!

  • Rename your plugins folder to plugins-old and see if that magically corrects anything?

    Thank you for the reply! Just tried that, but no change. Any other thoughts?

    You’re not running any cache plugins or server side cache, are you?

    And http://mysite.com/wp-admin/network/ redirects…

    Nothing weird in your .htaccess?

    No, no cache plugins. And the .htaccess just has the standard setup from the Codex (below). I’m just totally vexed because it’s a really simple setup, and was working great until it wasn’t 🙂

    # BEGIN WordPress
    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]
    
    # END WordPress

    A quick correction: The URLs are rendering like this —

    http://http//mysite.com/wp-admin/network/

    Rather than the way that I initially said. Not sure if that makes tracking it down easier.

    Check your wp_blogs table and make sure the sites have a domain like example.com and not anything else.

    That table looks normal, all sites have mysite.com domain in that field.

    That’s really weird. the only time I saw that was when someone had a broken version of W3TC running, or had a typo in the MAIN site’s http set up…

    Ipstenu, thank you for your input thus far. Still can’t find a resolution to this. Getting desperate — don’t want to have to take and reinstall. Any further help would be very much appreciated.

    So I can kinda reproduce this, but it has to do with how I’ve mapped domains in a weird ‘I’m testing stuff’ way. Are you doing any domain mapping?

    No, all the sites are just set up as mysitename.com/subsitename.

    I figured this out, in case it’s helpful to anyone.

    In the Multisite area of the wp-config.php, I had put a preceding “http://” in front of the DOMAIN_CURRENT _SITE url. Removing it fixed the whole thing.

    SHOULD BE:

    define('DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', 'mysite.com');

    NOT:

    define('DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', 'http://mysite.com');
