New networked site not showing dashboard (10 posts)

    I just set up a multisite network and set up a new secondary site. The new site appears under the sites list but I cannot get to its dashboard. I get an "this is embarrassing page not found" error message and a page with unstyled content. From that page I cannot get to the dashboard, there is no WP menu bar, and no "Howdy username".

    An earlier thread started to cover this (6 mos. ago) but the person gave up before the issue was resolved.

    It was suggested that it could be a problem with the wp-config. I've checked my wp-config file and it has exactly the code shown in the codex for a sub-directory network. I'm on localhost and the primary site seems fine--I have full access. I am the super admin and no one else is accessing the network. I'm running MAMP on localhost if that gives any clues.

    Judging from the previous thread, it seemed that others were having exactly this problem, but the solution was not identified. I'm stumped. Thanks for any help you can offer.

    The network is set up as a subdirectory network or subdomains ?
    If you do subdomains and you get the page not found, have you actually created the subdomain in your local server ?

    The install recognized localhost and only allowed subdirectories. I then created the new site from within the new sites menu function in WP. I'd like to do subdomains at some point but am happy to just have a testing environment that allows me to have multiple sites for now.

    Here's what I found in the Apache http.conf file. Your excellent tutorial indicates it needs to be changed, but what i have is not quite what you show. Please take a look before I make a mess of it!

    <Directory "/Applications/MAMP/cgi-bin">
        AllowOverride None
        Options None
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
    </Directory>

    Do I simply delete the "none" and "deny"?

    Thanks.

  5. That's for CGI bin.

    Are you using Multisite on localhost?

    Yes this is a MAMP server on localhost. Network set up for subdirectories.

    There was a small site present on my system when I set up the network. It shows by its full name on the dropdown under the my sites tab, but on the My Sites>Dashboard>Sites>All sites page where it shows the path to each site the path for the main site is just the slash, "/".

    The secondary site's path is shown as /secondarysite/. Don't know if this was useful info. Oddly, this morning the secondary site's page is still unstyled but the "it's embarrrassing" error message is gone. Dunno.

    Thanks.

  7. Moving to Localhost for one. That actually matters ;)

    Look for Directory "/Applications/MAMP/ NOT cgi-bin

    There was a small site present on my system when I set up the network.

    What do you mean? Did you have a WP install and then acticate MultiSite?

    Yes I had WP installed and running one site when I set up the multisite network. Nothing in the codex instructions said that this would be a problem.

    In the Apache http.conf file there are several NOT cgi-bin codes

    <Directory "/Applications/MAMP/Library/icons">
    Options Indexes MultiViews
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
    </Directory>

    <Directory "/Applications/MAMP/bin/phpMyAdmin">
    Options Indexes MultiViews
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
    </Directory>

    <Directory "/Applications/MAMP/bin/SQLiteManager">
    Options Indexes MultiViews
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
    </Directory>

    <Directory "/Applications/MAMP/bin/mamp">
    Options Indexes MultiViews
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
    </Directory>

    Is Andrea's markup change supposed to be applied to one of these?

    i'm having this same issue. i setup Multi-Site, and i'm able to add new sites, they show up under the "Sites > All Sites" menu, however on the top menu under "My Sites", it's only showing my main site.
