Support » Networking WordPress » New install, all blogs report Page Not Found

  • Resolved Mr E


    Hi all!

    Working with a fresh install at The install was done this morning, directly into multi site.

    I performed the changes from Network as required after reference to my host, GoDaddy, and the install all seemed fine.

    When I attempt to add another site, the process goes fine and all links point to the subfolder(s) to be expected. Sadly, back and front end fail to respond.

    I did change the permalinks on the root by accident but changed them right back after I noticed that the pages no longer would display on the root. The pages worked, blogs do not. I deleted the blog and added it again to the root, checking the basic settings and folder paths, all looked normal. I removed it and added a fresh blog called test, it is still reporting to the root as there and working however it still will not come up in the browser for front or back end.

    Aside fresh install, any other ideas?

  • What is the content of your .htaccess right now?

    Mr E


    AddType application/x-shockwave-flash swf
    AddType application/x-bittorrent torrent

    Well. There’s one problem 🙂 When you setup a network, it tells you to add lines to our .htaccess. For subfolder it should be these:

    # 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

    I’m late to 3.0.x arg 🙂

    I do seem to recall adding them (somewhere) (cough cough user error alert) and to be honest I’d hoped your response would be ‘hurmm well thats normal’ as it didn’t seem normal to me LOL

    None the less, ran a backup (why site was down for a moment) and made the change. Works like a charm 🙂

    Hats off and my thanks to you!

    No prob 🙂 getting used to the weirdly different htaccesses takes a while.
