Support » Networking WordPress » Network Setup

  • I have read the network setup section of the codex pretty carefully. My problem at the moment is that when I click the “Tools” icon on the dashboard, “Network Setup” is not among the options I see. It did show up after I first installed wp, and I clicked it, but something went awry after that. It’s not showing up now, and I’m not getting a Network Admin page, either. I suppose I made some mistake in my initial effort to set up the multisite, but am uncertain what it was and how to get it straight. I did try the catroom of my host server, and while they’ve been helpful with many things, the network setup is outside their area of expertise.

    Any help is appreciated!

  • Hi blabberpen,

    are you still having trouble with this?
    if so here are a few things to try

    It generally sounds like your wp-config.php file is missing the multisite directives,

    To enable the Network Setup menu item, you must first enable multisite in the wp-config.php file.

    Open up wp-config.php

    this is what you need to check for. if these two lines are missing than you will not be able to visit the network setup page.

    /* Multisite */
    define( 'WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true );

    if they are indeed there then it may be an issues with your “.htccess file”
    if they are not there than add it to the file above where it says:

    /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. *

    so firstly check to make sure that

    define( 'WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true );
    is present in this file. if not add it as described above.

    let me know how it goes if you still need help

    hello, I have the same problem. I already have

    define( ‘WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE’, true );

    on my



    /* That’s all, stop editing! Happy blogging. *

    but whenever I go to my wordpress site,

    network setup

    is not one of the options. I have been trying to find a solution for a couple of days now but I can’t seem to make my website a multisite, no matter how hard I try. and i’m starting to get frustrated. Please help!
