Request-URL Too Large (11 posts)

    I have set up multisite on an exisiting WP blog. After a few difficulties I managed to create a new sub-blog. My problem now is that I can see the new site but not login to the site admin (from any direction). Any attempt to go to .../WP-Admin just creates a huge url which eventually give the following error:

    Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

    Then says:

    Request-URI Too Large
    The requested URL's length exceeds the capacity limit for this server.

    Any thoughts anyone?

  2. The request too large I THINK means that your site is redirecting over and over until the URL gets too long.

    Are you using subfolders or subdomains, and what's In your .htacess?

    Thankyou. Yes, I am using subfoders and have set up one new blog using that.

    The .htaccess files contains:

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

  4. Okay, that's the right .htaccess file.

    Just checking: You did NOT create a manual subfolder (that is, there's no actual folder on your server under domain.com/subfolder ) - There should NOT be, so don't create one :)

    Is that all that's in your .htaccess? Do you have any redirection plugins on WP or in your domain setup?

    This isn't an addon domain within a cpanel account, is it? That adds to the length of the url as well. If it is, it;s a good idea to install wp/wpmu within the webroot of the account.

    I don't think so. I think this is a re-direction thing.

    Actually, this is the link thats being generated why trying to access the WP-Admin:

    I went to the wp-admin url
    I got to the log in page eventually and it was obvious

    I just deactivated my login plugin (simple login) but no change.

    Then I tried deactivating another plugin (theme my login) which creates a members login page from my Thesis theme, and that did the trick!

    Brilliant ! Thank you very much Samuel.

    I suppose I have to abandon the "theme my login" plugin for good.

    1st try activating the theme my login by itself
    then activate simple login
    may not work
    I use theme my login and it works well - do you need both?
