Support » Fixing WordPress » Network main site with and without www

  • Upgraded two WordPresses to 3.0.4 and networked them (not to each other). All went very, very well, with one teeny-tiny glitch.

    One of them works just fine with or without the “www” on the primary domain, while the other has decided that that’s a request for a rather hairy-URLed new subdomain:

    “The site you were looking for,, does not exist.”

    Poking about in the Apache shows they’re both configured the same. Poking about in WordPress, though, turns out that the problem child has this in the config:

    define( ‘DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘’ );

    while the other one has its domain with no www. So I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess that that’s my problem.

    Is there a simple way to work around this, or am I stuck search-and-replacing the domain in my whole database? And if the latter, is there anything weird I should look for in a networked install?

    (Naturally, the screwed-up site is the one that’s got www-less links all over the Internet.)

  • Same problem here.
    Did you find any better solution?
    Thank you

    Sadly, no. Ended up doing the domain name change. Worked fine, though of course there were a couple of instances of www’s that the name change docs didn’t catch. Darned if I can remember what they were, though, other than that they were relevant to the multi/subdomain config.
