    I am having the exact same issue? Started after the last update

    I got it to work.
    1. Downloaded the entire site from server. No clean install and then set up MU.
    2. Download DB and changed urls to local host.
    I originally had the MU site in a folder titled WordPress on my virtual server along with other sites. What seemed to work is putting all the WordPress files directly into the root folder, eliminating the wordpress folder throughout the site in the DB and wp-config.
    Works great. I hope this helps someone else in the future.
    Thanks very much.

    Did WordPress work before you copied the DB down? Yes, established good functioning MU
    Did you remember to edit your wp-config to tell it that you’re running Multisite? Yes, Because if I did not the site would not have functioned as a MU
    Did you verify all the DB information to make sure it’s valid?Yes, double checked manually and ran the script I got off

    If the DB is up, then the issue is WP can’t talk to it. Completely agree

    Your connextion info is wrong But if the connection were broken the initial WP MU install would not have worked.

    Will try running repair.

    Thank you. Will try again. Barb Quinn

    Hi Mike,
    Possibly I may have not been clear on moving the MU from server to local.

    Like regular WP I installed a “clean” WP on my localhost. Gave it a virtual domain and set up MU in the “clean” WP.

    Transfered the WP-content folder from server along with DB.
    Then replaced WP-content from server to “clean” install on localhost.

    Copy and pasted server DB into the DB associated with the “clean” install on localhost. After going in and changing the url from the server to local.

    That being said are you suggesting just downloading the entire site verbatim from server to localhost?
    then altering the config file to reflect the DB on localhost. If so, do I just go into MAMP and create new DB then import info from DB on server and change the urls?

    Thank you for your patience.

    Just realized the config file is fine, the DB was exported from the server and imported to the DB on the localhost the one that WP configured during install. So editing the config isn’t needed. When I try and login I receive the message
    Error establishing database connection
    If your site does not display, please contact the owner of this network. If you are the owner of this network please check that MySQL is running properly and all tables are error free.

    Could not find site Searched for table wp_blogs in database multisiteDB. Is that right?

    What do I do now? Read the bug report page. Some of the guidelines there may help you figure out what went wrong. If you’re still stuck with this message, then check that your database contains the following tables:


    I went into the DB and made sure I had all of the above. Any thoughts on this?
    Much appriciate your help.

    No great thought. Let me ask you though. Understand about PW and Username but the DB name will not be the one carried over from the current but rather the one on the Virtual Server. Yes?
    Thank you so much. Will check later today.
    Top Dog Design.
