    Hey Rich,

    Sorry to hear you are having difficulties. Don’t worry, though, we’ll get this sorted. @zyniker offers some excellent advice for us to be able to troubleshoot and understand what’s going on. In addition to his suggestions, though, I have a few thoughts of my own.

And secondly, I’d be interested in what you have in the root of each the sites. It seems like there is something going on that’s unWordpresslike. But first things first, let’s have you update and if you can share the screenshots, that’d be great.

    Hope that helps!
