How do I add sites to the network? (.Com's)

I cannot add sites to my network. Yes the network is set up properly.

I just don’t get it. It cannot be this hard. What is wrong with me?

There are TONS of videos here. But none that address this problem. I am not here to get videos so I can white-label them and teach people.

I am here to learn how to set up and run a WPMU network. And the are zero videos on that?


Thank you.

    Hey there, Xochipelli

    Lets check a couple things and make sure that your network is setup correctly.

    First of all, there are some good tutorials available one being at the codex.

    But lets just check a couple things right off the bat.

    1) What is the exact text you are putting into the box’s on this screenshot?

    2) is wordpress installed at your root?

    3) could you paste a copy of your .htaccess file (the one in the folder holding the wordpress install.

    4) does your server support mod rewrite? Who is your host?

    5) In your screenshot here, Could you please clarify what the text in the green box is saying or meaning? I’m sorry, I don’t quite understand what you are saying here?

    6) would it be possible for us to have a link to the main site?
