Server Requirements

  • What are all the server requirements for multisite?

    For example: I have a site at http://www.downtownchathamcentre.com

    mod_writes are enabled and overrides all is set

    However, if you test the site, you cannot get to any of the internal pages, as if the re_writes are not working.

    I would REALLY appreciate some feedback on this.

    Thanks 🙂

    Same as regular single site.

    Interestingly, http://www.downtownchathamcentre.com/?p=1 redirects you (correctly) to the pretty name. Can you try resaving permalinks?

    If by resaving permalinks you mean going to permalinks and clicking ‘Save Options’… Didn’t help.

    Here is my htaccess file is that helps:

    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]

    I did my migration by doing find and replace, could I have caused this in the database?

    On my localhost it was in a subfolder localhost/dcc but on the server it is in the public_html directory. I replaced localhost/dcc with nothing.

    I’ve never experienced this problem, but I’ve never worked with multisite either.

    I replaced localhost/dcc with nothing.

    well.. .considering the install will reference the saved domain in the database multiple times, then yes. this is your problem.

    You needed to replace localhost/dcc with the actual live domain.

    oops I don’t know why I said that, i replaced http://localhost/dcc with http://www.downtownchathamcentre.com

    The answer is still … Maybe?

    I’d doublecheck for localhost anywhere in my database.

    And I’m still getting a “can’t find the server” for that domain.
