I am trying to set up a testing server on a wamp that matches much as possible my remote site which is on Linux. I've followed the multisite network setup directions as best I could step-by-step, but I've run into exactly the same problem that I had way back in April. Here are the links to those earlier discussions:
The error message I'm working with is
[Sun Aug 28 21:32:25 2011] [alert] [client 127.0.0.1] C:/Apache2/htdocs/Semantic Law/.htaccess: RewriteBase takes one argument, the base URL of the per-directory context, referer: http://localhost/Semantic%20Law/wp-admin/network.php
I don't really know what this means but I infer that it's telling me there should be only one “argument” but that there is some ambiguity which is causing the whole thing to stop and report a 500 internal server error. If there is more than one base how and where would I fix that?
What I'm asking for is someone to help me interpret this error message in plain English and then suggests some ways to get my testing server up and running. Thank you.
