    I need help diagnosing trouble with my new WordPress 3.4.1 install. I am able to create new sites with the network feature, but when I use the "Visit" hyperlink I get a Not Found Apache error.

    This is a development install on new install of Ubuntu 12.04 server with nothing else installed. It is a local dev machine and I am root, so I can try anything. Just want to avoid re-installing if possible.

    Another sign of trouble with this install: If I click on the Archives link on the main page I also get a Not Found error.

    Would appreciate any ideas for diagnosing and trouble-shooting...


  2. If you installed as subdomains, then you need wildcards, which do not work on local host.

    Hi Andrea, Thanks for taking the time to look at my issue. I'm migrating personal content management from WikiMedia to WordPress, so I know I'm going to have to work on the transition.

    During the install I used all defaults so I'm pretty sure I didn't use subdomains. On the menu bar I see "My Sites". If I click on "Visit" for the original site the page comes up ok with the local IP in the browser address bar as such: Problem is, if I click on Archives I get a Not Found error and this in the address bar:

    A similar thing happens when I go to "My Sites" and click on "Visit" on one of the sites I was able to create. I get a Not Found error with the following in the address bar of the browser:

    Is there supposed to be something in the blogs.dir directory? It's empty. chmoded blogs.dir to 777 so I don't think there should be a permission problem.

    Good job WordPress Codex. I used this guide to solve the problem:

    The problem was: I had only changed the "AllowOveride None" to "AllowOveride all" in ONE place and not BOTH places inside the file: /etc/apache2/sites-avail/default

    Awesome. Things are working now... I'm sure I'll be back for more help later...
