network

can't create sites

  • sienda_weblines

    See this screenshot.
    As you can see there are a lot of things I must set up.
    Is there any manual online?

    Besides, this is my .htaccess

    # Use PHP5 Single php.ini as default
    AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5s .php

    #BEGIN WordPress

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]

    # uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$1 [L]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    # END WordPress

    # Start CloudFlare:qoobix.net rewrite. Do not Edit
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^qoobix.net
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.%{HTTP_HOST}/$1 [R=301,L]
    # End CloudFlare rewrite.

    I created wildcard, but it doesn't work. There must be some parameters I need to setup.

    Is the issue what you describe in the following post?

    This:

    # Use PHP5 Single php.ini as default
    AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5s .php

    Is your server not using PHP 5 by default then?

    This is usually done when the default is PHP 4, it's done to force 5 instead.

    # Start CloudFlare:qoobix.net rewrite. Do not Edit
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^qoobix.net
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.%{HTTP_HOST}/$1 [R=301,L]
    # End CloudFlare rewrite.

    This is obviously something for CloudFlare. I couldn't comment on that as I don't use it myself.

    I can't comment on the rest of that htaccess as you didn't confirm:

    Which version of WordPress Multisite you on?

    And also please confim:

    Anything in your error logs?

    Thanks.

    Hi there!
    I have attached a screenshot about php configuration. It is version 5.2
    Do I have to change to 5.4, which one PHP 5.4 or PHP 5.4 (Single php.ini)?
    About Cloud Flare, do you suggest not to use it?

    I am using WordPress 3.4.2., to install multisite functions I followed these instructions http://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network

    Nothing in the log errors!
    I fear I am lost at sea.
    Best

    I have attached a screenshot about php configuration. It is version 5.2
    Do I have to change to 5.4, which one PHP 5.4 or PHP 5.4 (Single php.ini)?

    WordPress has a minimum requirement of PHP 5.2.4 or greater, so as long as you're on that version you should be fine.

    Other plugins or themes might however require a higher version but you'd most likely get some errors popping up if that were the case.

    About Cloud Flare, do you suggest not to use it?

    It's not something I personally use, so couldn't comment. Sorry.

    That said, whenever I get errors then part of debugging involves removing non-standard things whilst testing to narrow down the issue.

    I see you started again, you'll have to let me know how you're going with this.

    If you get internal 500 errors again then it would be best to ask your host to look at it. There should be an error somewhere to explain the issue.

    Take care.

  • sienda_weblines

    Nothing!!
    I am still getting errors.
    Wild card DNS is OK, but there are configuration errors I can't understand how to fix.
    All plugins disabled, new installation, followed the procedure step by step but I am still at sea.
    BlueHost support says it is just a misconfiguration problem, but I don't know what to do.
    I have got this long list from error logs

    Hey there.

    You can ask your host what is misconfigured. That could mean so many things. And ask them specifically what is wrong with the set and what they can do.

    Most of the errors there are that the files are missing or not readable.

    Request exceeded the limit of 10 internal redirects due to probable configuration error.

    That could be something like htaccess creating a redirect loop.

    If they could provide further insight that would help.

    Let me know what they say.

    Thanks.

    Hi there Tim!
    You're very kind.
    Look, I was literally getting mad and I've uninstalled all.
    I restarted, well, but nothing changed. BlueHost told me that it might be a problem of mis-configuration but they can't assist. Say, I purchased hosting with them because they are wpbeginner first choice, but although I configured wildcard and everything , and although I kept having trouble, they told me they do not offer any support about wpress. Now I've installed buddypress and some of your (wpmudev) plugins and it works, but I am not sure I can go without multisite.
    I tell you my project. The plan is to create a platform which allows businesses in general (small and medium) to post their AD and their offers (discounts, vouchers, etc.). This web project should be then published on 3 websites (English, Spanish, Italian). I am thinking about 3 websites because it looks like a very local service, and this could be easier by the time to retrieving content from (local) users.
    Yet, at the same time I don't want to create the nth social network, nobody needs it, there are no spare places at the social networks table, indeed. My project would be that of building a network so as to let businesses post their advertising messages (videos, images, text) and then make it easy for people to find them (all in one place), along with the function to spread that content through social networks and more platforms.
    Do you think I can do this without multisite, any suggestion?
    Best
    Bob

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
