WP 3.0 MultiSite Error 404

Setup WP 3.0 MultiSite as detailed in the WPMUDEV Manual.

I am using a SubDomain structure...Mydomain.com/munetwork/

Everything is work as a MU site, I created my first site and even received the site creation notification email to the Site Admin email.

However, when I browser the new site URL: http://mydomain.com/munetwork/testsite
I get a 404 error:

The requested URL /munetwork/testsite was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

I logged into my Cpanel and I do not see a subdirectory created for the new site under my
parent directory /munetwork/ or in the subdirectory /blogs.dir/ . There are zero folders or files.

The parent MU site is functioning and I can see all of the MU Super Admin interfaces in wp-admin.

    Hiya!

    First off, welcome to WPMU DEV! We're glad to have ya here :smiley:

    I want to make sure we're on the same page on a few things and then I think we can help ya get this sorted.

    I am using a SubDomain structure...Mydomain.com/munetwork/

    Actually, this would be a "Sub-directory" structure.
    Sub-domain looks like this: http://testsite.mydomain.com
    Sub-directory looks like this: http://mydomain.com/testsite

    However, when I browser the new site URL: http://mydomain.com/munetwork/testsite

    I would think the expected URL would be something like one of the two I mentioned above. I'm curious as to why the 'munetwork' part is in the URL.
    My hunch is there's either an issue in your wp-config file or in the database itself.
    Check the following in your wp-config file:
    define( 'DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', 'example.com' );
    define( 'PATH_CURRENT_SITE', '/' );

    Should look something like above.
    Then you'll need to check your database (through PHPMyAdmin in cPanel) and look in your wp_options table for the option_name 'siteurl' and 'home'. Both of these should be the exact same value as the information in the DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE above.

    Let us know if all of that matches up. If it does and things still aren't working, we'll check the .htaccess next.

    I logged into my Cpanel and I do not see a subdirectory created for the new site under my parent directory /munetwork/ or in the subdirectory /blogs.dir/

    You won't see subdirectories created outside of blogs.dir. In this directory there should be a list of numbered folders (one for each site). If these are not created, check the permissions on this directory. Should be set to 755.

    Thanks. Let us know how it goes! :smiley:

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.
