I was attempting a Network install. I followed all the instructions explicitly, but when I logged back into the WordPress admin area after Step 5: Enabling the Network, there was no super admin panel.
I then proceeded to research as much of this topic as I could. All of the WordPress "help" resources pointed me to double check everything that I just did. So I did that. The wp-config.php file is correct. mod_rewrite() is enabled through my hosting. The .htaccess file is 100% correct according to the instructions. The database tables exist and have proper permissions. The blog.dir directory exists and has proper permissions. But there is NO super admin panel that shows up.
The only thing I haven't tried is a re-install. If anybody can help me out with this issue, I will greatly appreciate it.
