Support » Alpha/Beta/RC » Second blog in 3.0 Multisite not there to view

  • Not quite the same as the others who are getting 404’s, but just installed 3.0b2, and the first blog is fine. Then set up Network/MultiSite and that’s fine. Created a second blog in a /blog2 subdirectory off the main domain, and the Dashboard and Super Admin sections show the 2nd blog as being created, but in actuality, no files are written into the /blog2 subdirectory, and I therefore get a 403 error when I try to view it. Is this a beta problem that’s just cropped up, or have I had a brain freeze on one of the install components?

  • I have the exact same problem.

    I solved the problem by using Filezilla to rename htaccess.txt to .htaccess as I could not rename it using Windows. The second blog then appeared…

    Checked my .htaccess file and it’s fine. (By the way mazzran, the way around that if you have to edit your .htccess file again is to do a “Save As” in Notepad and make sure “All Files” is selected as “Save as type” before writing the specifically named .htaccess filesave.)

    One thing I did notice is that when I attempt to write a new post in the second blog, it actually gets written to the first one, even though I’m in the second blog’s Dashboard when I create it. And to make it even weirder (but actually, more logical), each blog’s Dashboard list of posts increases by 1 every time a new post is created.

    Thanks for the tip jmarkj.

    I tried new posts in both blogs and it seems to work fine. I am testing it out using localhost with WP3.0 beta 1.

    “but in actuality, no files are written into the /blog2 subdirectory, “

    Just a note that no files ever will be created. The blogs are virtual, they only live in the database.

    How can I create two different databases, one for each blog?

    I’ve uploaded to the root of my hosting all wordpress files. I created a new blog in a subfolder. Thus I have:

    – mysite.com/ (default)
    – mysite.com/en/

    Can’t I modify the route (path) of my first blog, which is automatically generated by WordPress, and change it into “mysite.com/es/”?

    thanks!

    You don’t create a different database, they live in the same one.

    The multisite functionality gives you extra sites/blogs without adding extra files.

    ok “Don’t create different database” but…

    I created a new blog in a subfolder. Thus I have:
    – mysite.com/ (default)
    – mysite.com/en/

    Can’t I modify the route (path) of my first blog, which is automatically generated by WordPress, and change it into “mysite.com/es/”?

    thanks!
