WordPress Network on Dreamhost?

    Hi, dottavi, I’m both DreamHost’s resident WP guru, and a savvy Multisite master 🙂 So hopefully I can help you out!

    One of the more annoying problems that pops up with Multisite is that redirect loop. Normally this is actually a cookie problem.

    The fix is actually pretty easy, and there are three things to do.

    1) Edit your wp-config.php.

    Visit https://api.wordpress.org/secret-key/1.1/salt/ and get new salts/hashes. This should prompt your users to re-login and hopefully generate new cookies.

    2) Dump your cache.

    Sometimes, however, browsers are idiots and you have to flush the local cache. You shouldn’t need to dump caching plugins, since that doesn’t impact logins.

    3) Delete your cookies.

    I hate this one. Delete the cookies only for your domain if possible. Chrome hides this, but it’s doable for all sites.

    I don’t see an install on your server right now (I see three folders, but they seem not to be full installs), so I can’t look any further.

    Hi Ipstenu, really thanks a lot. Stupid me, I didn’t think of it. Yes I deleted everything, purged all the tables from the db, started from scratch again and now I’m up and running

    Really thanks a lot. Best,
    Alberto

    Not stupid at all 🙂 It really is a weird error.
