The MU forums have moved to WordPress.org

Installation adds /php/ directory to blog address (11 posts)

    I ran the install file, everything seems to come together fine. However, when i try to go to the admin or login pages, Wordpress will add /php/ to the file name.

    For example: mydomain.com/wp-signup.php becomes
    mydomain.com/php/wp-signup.php which does not exist in the file structure, and does not redirect anywhere. Why would it add this directory???

    Can anyone help me with this problem?
    Should Wordpress-mu randomly add a virtual directory extension like /php/ to its addresses?

    FWIW, I had a similar problem post install of MU. My Url looked like mydomain.com/cgi-system/wp-signup.php but eas actually ‚ąömydomain.com/mu/wp-signup.php
    Here's how I corrected my situation.

    1) Used phpmyadmin to search for all instances of cgi-system and corrected the path that way.
    2) Edited out cgi-system from the wp-config file in my installation directory.
    3) Edited .htaccess which also had cgi-system in the path.

    This is really it but kinda took me a while to root out where that url was coming from. Hope it helps ya!

    I don't know if this is the same issue as reported at the link below (I thought that was fixed long ago), but it sounds very similar.

    What I did was use phpmyadmin to dump the database as an sql file. Open the sql file in a text editor (notepad will do) and do a search and replace. Yours would be something like:

    Find: mydomain.com/php/

    Replace: mydomain.com/

    Then go back to your database in phpmyadmin and delete all the tables and then import your corrected sql file.

    Not sure if this will work, because your problem is a little different that what was reported, but it's worth a try.

    I think he meant phpmyadmin...

    And there's a search tab in there. just plunk "php" in it.

    Great...fixed /php/ entries in the database tables, and I'm getting farther than before.

    Now if I can just figure out why the email feature is not working...I think I saw another posting about that...feel free to help me out or point me to the right post.

    I appreciate all the help so far!!!

    I had a similar problem in getting a WordPress MU installation up and going. I tried various things to get it working - but did in the end, manage to get a successful installation.

    I went ahead and put in a bug report for this : http://trac.mu.wordpress.org/ticket/502

    The ticket report contains a workaround that works for me. I don't know if this is the best place for posting the workaround - but I hope its helpful.
