Support » Networking WordPress » Subdirectory Multisite problem

  • For some reason, everytime I try to create a new site in my wordpress multisite, I get the 404 Not Found Mesaage.

    I created a multisite using the following directions:

    It worked perfect, and I was able to get the new dashboard and everything. I double checked to make sure I follow the “Network Setup” instructions under tools and everything. I setup my site to do Sub-directories and everything. The one and only thing that I didn’t pay attention to was the permissions for my /var/www/wordpress folder. Are the default permissions what is blocking me? What chmod should I set for files and folders?

  • Did you update your .htaccess?

    Yes, I updated everything as ordered.

    Is there a chat where I can talk to ppl live for wordpress?

    IRC, but just as here, it’s free volunteer based support.

    What’s the content of your .htaccess file in /var/www/wordpress

    my .htaccess file has:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /wordpress/
    RewriteRule ./wordpress/index.php
    #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).*) $1 [L]
    RewriteRule  ^[_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/(.*\.php)$ $1 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    And thanks your help and telling me about the IRC :).

    RewriteBase /wordpress/
    RewriteRule ./wordpress/index.php

    That should be

    RewriteBase /wordpress/
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]

    Even with that chage, it still does not work :-/. I also noticed that my sample page stopped working. Even though I can get in to the administrative dashboard and look at homepage.

    I also noticed that my sample page stopped working.

    What sample page?

    Can you provide the real URL for your site?

    I would prefer not to post it online, since it’s a test site for when the real thing comes. Do you have and e-mail I csn send you the site to, or can I send you a message?

    I don’t do email support for free. Forums (and IRC) are free 🙂

    So works works … works? doesn’t work

    Is that right?

    I see. Most of what you said is correct. work works 404 Not Available 404 Not Available

    What might be the problem?

    Sorry, that’s not a sample.php, but sample/

    I’m having a similar problem. Was bounced off of my hosting and now trying to re-establish.

    I can access the admin.php of the main site

    But when I try to access the subdirectorysite ( I get a 404 message.

    Am thinking it could be an issue with a dedicated IP address, but not sure.
    Any ideas?

    Super grateful for any help.

    slaats – Make your own topic, please. It’s really hard to try to follow two debugging threads at once 🙂

    monserratem – What happens at ?

    And have you tried resaving permalinks for

    I get this:

    Not Found
    The requested URL /wp-admin/network was not found on this server.
    Apache/2.2.22 (Ubuntu) Server at Port 80

    What is meant by resaving? I’m a little knew at this, so I am not sure how I would resave (other than just making a page).
