[resolved] Strange Login problems with mutisite (7 posts)

    I recently set up multisite with subdomains. After some initial confusion, everything now works fine. (Originally my subdomain wouldn't come up, apparently because there were errors in MX settings, whatever that is.) Now subdomain site comes up fine.

    From the subdomain, I can reach the Network Admin panel, since my login is the SuperAdmin login.

    Sudomain site is: http://circle.glow.cc/

    The network-installed plugins do not show up in the sub-site. e.g. FS-contact, which I need.

    I can log into the main site fine.
    http://glow.cc is main site

    When I am logged into the main site, under "My Sites," I see the option of the Network Dashboard.

    However, when click on it, I am kicked out into a login screen, with a redirect and the screen does not accept my username and password. I even reset my password, to no avail.

    This is what I get when I try to reach the Network Dashboard from a current main site login:
    http://glow.cc/1wp/wp-login.php?redirect_to=http%3A%2F%2Fglow.cc%2Fwp-admin%2Fnetwork%2F&reauth=1 but the form will not accept my credentials.

    The network-installed plugins, such as FS-Contact do not show up in the main site either.

    And, yest, I'm the Network administrator.

    I'm stumped. Help would be appreciated.

  2. http://glow.cc/1wp/

    Is this installed in a subfolder?

    Yes, Mika, it's installed in the subfolder 1wp, according to instructions.

    You helped me work through some issues. See

    And I thought everything was working perfectly, until I ran into this issue. Seems weird ...

  4. What's in your .htaccess?

    In the meantime, the problem resolved itself (I think), and I can login to the Super Admin panel from the link on the main site bar. No idea why, but I'm not complaining. ;)

    .htaccess in public_html

    <Files 403.shtml>
    order allow,deny
    allow from all
    # BEGIN WordPress
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteRule ^wp-admin$ wp-admin/ [R=301,L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule ^(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) 1wp/$1 [L]
    RewriteRule ^(.*\.php)$ 1wp/$1 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    Now, what's the meaning of that top portion about <Files 403.shtml>? I left it in because I didn't know what it meant.

    My next project is to uninstall plugins and install again to see if they will show up properly on the site dashboards. Or are there better ways??

  6. That's fine, it;s just stuff for the server :)

    You may have had a network (ie. server not WP) glitch. They happen.

    Are they network activated?

    Yes, my plugins are network activated, and after uninstalling and re-installing, they are working too.

    Just wp-ajax-edit-comments does not work properly in a network install -- either the new or an old one. It wontsave settings,but it works fine on a single-site install. I am hoping the plugin author will address it, because it is a great plugin. I only need themove commentfunction on the Dashboard and there`s no way to turn the other stuff off at the moment.

    Thank you so much for all the support work you do on this forum! Hope they pay you enough. ;) ;)
