    To fix the problem with registration, go to your Network Admin > Settings and select the appropriate option in “Allow new registrations”.

    Pippin: I cannot get into the Network Admin > Settings area to do this. Once I activate (install) the WordPress Network and attempt to Login, I get a blank page with “Registration has been disabled” message.

    Can you get to the Network Admin at all?

    Only if I revert my .htaccess and wp-config files to what they were before.

    I’m hunting online and learning that the problem may rely inside my .htaccess coding.

    Currently the code in my “.htaccess” is:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^$ [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [R=301,L]
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    # uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$2 [L]
    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?wp-admin$ $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).*) $1 [L]
    RewriteRule  ^[_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/(.*\.php)$ $1 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    I’ve added these lines:

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^$ [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [R=301,L]

    I added them because of this:

    But still no go.

    Did you setup the network install manually or with a plugin, such as Enable Multisite?

    I setup manually. I am using FileZilla to edit and upload my files.

    Going to this page triggers “User registration is not enabled”? /wp-admin/network/settings.php

    Having www in your domain name has always been squidgy with WP and especially with Mulltisite.

    If this is a brand new install, I would clean it out and start over, this time as, NO www. If its not new, I would delete the multisite stuff, change it to, and start over.

    It’s just less of a headache.

    Thank you Ipstenu.
    This resolved my problems. I can now edit multi sites by doing what you said.

    And thank you Pippin for trying to help.

    I too am facing the same issue as mdpdance. Ipstenu, how do I change my domain to from
