[Plugin: More Privacy Options] The requested URL /wp-activate.php was not found on this server.

  • I installed this plugin and set privacy options for one site in my network to registered members only. I created a new user and sent the activation email. Upon clicking the activation link, I get a page on my site (subdirectory site) that states “Your account is now active!” and successfully lists the username and password. However, the title of the page is “Page not found” and there is an error that reads “The requested URL /wp-activate.php was not found on this server.”

    I’d like to solve this error. Is this a more-privacy-options issue with redirecting to the correct url or is this a WP MS issue? I’d appreciate being pointed in the right direction.

    By the way, the activation link looks like:
    http://www.site.com/subsite/wp-activate.php?key=a1fb5af2656d60fb

    Thank you

    Huh.

    I’ve never seen any conflict with the user activation while the privacy plugin is active. I can’ t reproduce the error with what you have written.

    Are you sure you only get a 404 when the plugin is active?

    I’m having a hard time reproducing it myself. Instead of going to:

    http://www.site.com/SUBSITE/wp-activate.php?key=a1fb5af2656d60fb

    links are always going to

    http://www.site.com/wp-activate.php?key=a1fb5af2656d60fb

    for login, activate, etc. When it’s linked to the main site I get no error messages and everything looks fine. I suppose it’s more of a WP MS issue when activate.php is trying to be called from a subdirectory.

    Thank you for your help.

    I’m having a related problem. According to Andrea_R (part of the development team), the redirect you speak about is supposed to happen.

    What’s happening for me is that it’s not happening, and therefore, users are getting a Page Not Found error.

    I still haven’t found the root of what’s causing this, and I’m wondering if this behavior can be controlled through sunrise.php.
