After activating multisite the non www site url redirects to signup

After activating multisite on a single WordPress installation the non www site url redirects to sign up. Tried default htaccess and remove everything from the wp-config except default codes. Nothing worked.

    Hello Chris Beaudrie

    The issue is not with the non-www version of the site, rather that it is related to SSL certificate setup. When SSL was set up on your server, there is a redirect from non-www to www and that works well with your site. For example, if you visit https://site.com (notice, it's https) then it correctly redirected to https://www.site.com. But the problem starts when you type site.com (that is same as http://site.com, http version) and then it doesn't get redirection rather it is pointed to the site directory. So it falls under a indefinite redirect loop.

    Would you please ask your host to configure in such way so that the non-www with http version doesn't just point to the site directory, rather it gets redirected to the www version?

    As a side note, it was working in single wordpress site as in single site, wordpress considers the www and non-www version as the same site and set a redirect automatically. But on a multisite, www version of the site can be a subsite url or just site.com can be used as mapped domain for a subsite keeping www version as the main site. That's why multisite tends to ignore this auto redirection.

    Hope it helps! Have a nice day!

    Cheers,
