Support » Localhost Installs » WP Multisite installed locally (MAMP): Subsite "not found"?!?!?!

  • hi,
    i finally installed a multisite version locally on my imac via MAMP. i changed my localhost to port “80” and the multisite-installation worked fine. when i login to wordpress i can navigate through the main site (dashboard and site) with no problem (i also see the “my sites” menu at the top)…
    example: http://localhost/wordpress/wp-admin/ –>works fine!

    but when i try to go to my subsite (subdirectory) the site shows “not found” for both front- and backend!!!
    example: http://localhost/wordpress/subsite/wp-admin –>not found!! 🙁

    any ideas?

    thanks and cheers,
    Jochen from Germany

    Did you update your .htaccess?

    You may need to twiddle with your MAMP’s httpd.conf file to set AllowOverride to All.

    i updated my htaccess like how the multisite installation process told me… or do i have to add something more? how do i add allowoverride to the httpd.conf? thanks so far…

    Moving this to Localhost where localhosters host.

    Open /Applications/MAMP/conf/apache/httpd.conf and look for it.

    it says:
    # AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess files.
    # It can be “All”, “None”, or any combination of the keywords:
    # Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
    AllowOverride All that seems not to be the problem?!?!
