I've read that 99% of the time it is a user error that causes this to happen and have tried reading through the forums, but I still can't get my 'network setup' option in my 'tools' menu.
I followed the guidelines at:
Turned off all plug-ins and checked permalinks (set to post name)
Below are a selection of further user's solutions which I've tried:
Editing text in wp-config.php in a plain text editor (ubuntu text editor and Blue Fish) then uploading by FTP
Editing text in wp-config.php by hand (not copy and paste) then uploading by FTP
Using define('MULTISITE', true); instead of define( 'WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true );
If I try going to mysite.com/wp-admin/network I get 'You do not have sufficient permission to access this page' even though I've been giving main administrator's login details (I can delete all other users)
Perhaps the location of the WP install is an issue as it is located at /root/.aptitude/g/mysite.com/ ?????
The WP install was done by someone else on a VPS server, for which I am still yet to get hold of login details for admin panel.
Below is the later part of my present wp-config.php
/** * For developers: WordPress debugging mode. * * Change this to true to enable the display of notices during development. * It is strongly recommended that plugin and theme developers use WP_DEBUG * in their development environments. */ define('WP_DEBUG', false); /* Multisite */ define( 'WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true ); /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */ /** Absolute path to the WordPress directory. */ if ( !defined('ABSPATH') ) define('ABSPATH', dirname(__FILE__) . '/'); /** Sets up WordPress vars and included files. */ require_once(ABSPATH . 'wp-settings.php'); ?>
Is this still user error or is it time to contact the host?
Thanks anyone if you can offer help
