Unable to create new sites in multisite

I installed multisite as per instructions. Added the code both in wp-config and htaceess.

added a wildcard domain *.buycartisrael.com

But when I make a new site and visit: http://jewishnews.buycartisrael.com/ This is not the template. When I go to dashboard I get and 404. Same goes with posts and manage comments.

Code entered in wo-config:



* The base configurations of the WordPress.


* This file has the following configurations: MySQL settings, Table Prefix,

* Secret Keys, WordPress Language, and ABSPATH. You can find more information

* by visiting {@link http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php Editing

* wp-config.php} Codex page. You can get the MySQL settings from your web host.


* This file is used by the wp-config.php creation script during the

* installation. You don’t have to use the web site, you can just copy this file

* to “wp-config.php” and fill in the values.


* @package WordPress


[removed database info and auth keys]


* WordPress Database Table prefix.


* You can have multiple installations in one database if you give each a unique

* prefix. Only numbers, letters, and underscores please!


$table_prefix = ‘x3g_’;


* WordPress Localized Language, defaults to English.


* Change this to localize WordPress. A corresponding MO file for the chosen

* language must be installed to wp-content/languages. For example, install

* de_DE.mo to wp-content/languages and set WPLANG to ‘de_DE’ to enable German

* language support.


define (‘WPLANG’, ”:wink:;


* For developers: WordPress debugging mode.


* Change this to true to enable the display of notices during development.

* It is strongly recommended that plugin and theme developers use WP_DEBUG

* in their development environments.


define(‘WP_DEBUG’, false);

/* Multisite */

define(‘WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE’, true);

define(‘MULTISITE’, true);

define(‘SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL’, true);

define(‘DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘buycartisrael.com’:wink:;

define(‘PATH_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘/’:wink:;

define(‘SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE’, 1);

define(‘BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE’, 1);

/* That’s all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

/** Absolute path to the WordPress directory. */

if ( !defined(‘ABSPATH’:wink: )

define(‘ABSPATH’, dirname(__FILE__) . ‘/’:wink:;

/** Sets up WordPress vars and included files. */

require_once(ABSPATH . ‘wp-settings.php’:wink:;

Code in htaccess:

# BEGIN WordPress

RewriteEngine On

RewriteBase /

RewriteRule ^index.php$ – [L]

# add a trailing slash to /wp-admin

RewriteRule ^wp-admin$ wp-admin/ [R=301,L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d

RewriteRule ^ – [L]

RewriteRule ^(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $1 [L]

RewriteRule ^(.*.php)$ $1 [L]

RewriteRule . index.php [L]

# END WordPress

Please advice

Thank you

    Hi @david,

    I won’t be able to offer much help here, as support for issues other than ones with our plugins is limited to Gold members.

    From what I can tell here, something is not right with your wildcard subdomain. It’s not pointing to your WordPress installation. You may be able to check with your webhost about this. Your wp-config.php and htaccess look fine.

    You’ve just posted your password, so I’m going to edit it out.

    Best regards

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
