I am having a problem with my multiSite where I get the following message when I try to start a new site. It seems that I go through the process and the site shows up on my list of sites but when I try to edit the site or go to the dashboard I get "site not found" and these are the details:
The server at rmsc.catrinasgarden.com can't be found, because the DNS lookup failed. DNS is the network service that translates a website's name to its Internet address. This error is most often caused by having no connection to the Internet or a misconfigured network. It can also be caused by an unresponsive DNS server or a firewall preventing Google Chrome from accessing the network.
Other browsers have the same problem.
Some added info that may or may not be related:
The main site and all of the old sub sites seem to be okay.
I have had some recent hacking but I think my site is clean now.
Around the time that this started I was trying to change my user name. This is a separate problem but I mention it in case it may be related. I was reading about how you should not use admin (I don't use that but my user name is the same as the name of my website so I thought it would be more secure to use an obscure user name). I was not successful at changing it because it says the super admin user name is tied to the e-mail address and when I make a new super admin it seems I have to use a different e-mail because the first e-mail is already in use by the other super admin. I talked to my host and they tried to change it in the database but they said they put it back the way it was.
I made 2 other users for the new site that cannot be found and those users are getting the same message.
I did try to delete it and start over and get the same results. I also tried a different unrelated new site and it seems that all new sites have the same problem.
I will try and check the database on the server and see what e-mails are associated with what users. However, if this was the problem wouldn't the old sites be messed up too?
