Support » Networking WordPress » No Dashboard on new sites

  • My network dashboard says:
    You have 1 site and 2 users.

    I have set up 3 sites and my original and have 4 users.

    I cannot get the /wp-admin/ to open for any of the sites I added. Example: gives me the error message

    “The page isn’t redirecting properly.
    Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.
    This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.”

    I cannot get the Dashboard to open on any of the additional sites.

    Any suggestions?

  • I got the same problem of not accessing the site dashboard after copying my multisite installation from to

    Although I don’t have problems with the number of site nor the number of users.
    Flushing Firefox cache did not work. I will open a new ticket in order to avoid polluting this one.



    I got it fixed by copying the following lines into .htaccess, as indicated in the ‘Network admin’/’Dashboad’/’Settings’/’Network setup’:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [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).*) $2 [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*\.php)$ $2 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    Do not hesitate to ask for any precision.

    Thanks Jp but I have all of that in my .htaccess file from the start of setup but still cannot get into the dashboards of the new sites. Not sure what else to do.

    I don’t know how you did create your multisite installation but mine was in a sub-domain and everything was fine until I moved everything to
    Then I had to change the tables wp_options, wp_sites, etc. and the wp-config.php file.

    Then I got the loop problem on the site. So I did :
    . delete the cache from Firefox
    . try with Internet Explorer

    Then I changed the htaccess file and it works.
    Not sure it can help but don’t hesitate to ask for any precision.

    The cache is usually the issue.
