    I have networks activated for my wp site here: http://theelanceguide.com - I have networks setup to use sub directories, and I'm on a Godaddy server.

    All seems to be working fine, except for the theme is not showing for the sub blogs: http://theelanceguide.com/dparker/ currently twenty ten is active for this account

    Also wp-admin is not working for the sub blogs:
    http://theelanceguide.com/dparker/wp-admin

    Even as Super admin, after visiting sites --> dparker --> Backend I get the same ( Not Found ) error

    Any help is much appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Dick

  2. The .htaccess file is not being read properly. You may need to force it with AllowOverride FileInfo Options in the httpd.conf file.

    Yes, really. :) (This question gets asked a LOT) the htaccess file control all this on subfolder blogs.

    Thanks for your assistance, however I've already contacted Godaddy and they told me I can not make any modifications to the httpd.conf file due to me being on a shared hosting account.

    Below is the code from my .htaccess file, maybe you can take a quick look to see if I'm missing anything:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    
    # 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]
    
    # END WordPress

    Thanks

  4. That's the default it gives you. :) It's not reading the file, so the contents of it don't even matter... see? :)

    On shared hosts, you may have to get them to do it for you. Not sure GD even will, but there ya go. I do know if you're using the subdomain format they prefer you to upgrade your account.

    I'm using the sub directories format, GD said they will not make any adjustments to apache on my behalf due to the fact it will affect all other users on the shared host.

    Are you saying that the only way I can activate networks, is if I upgrade to a dedicated server? GD said this is the only way I can have control over apache.

  6. It's really a GD issue.

  7. You didn't update your .htaccess correctly.

    You were supposed to REPLACE, not add on to :)

    # BEGIN WordPress
    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).*) $1 [L]
    RewriteRule  ^[_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/(.*\.php)$ $1 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    hmmm - this is fascinating - so there is no one that has a GD shared account that has networks activated?

    Can you recomend a shared host that I will not have this problem with?

    Thanks so much for your assistance...

  9. A lot of shared hosts don't let you use MultiSite because it IS a bit more network intensive.

    I would search the forums/google and ask them which work (due to spam, we really don't do a lot of hosting rec's here, due to the amount of spam that they attract.)

    Also you'll wanna fix your .htaccess. See my post above yours ;)

    @ipstenu - your solution worked - I removed the additional information from my .htaccess and it works now

    Thanks

  11. Sure thing. Just keep in mind, GoDaddy CAN and DOES throttle sites with MultiSite. They don't like it on a shared site, and won't let you use SubDomains unless you pay more and get a dedicated IP. Subfolders should be okay.
