.htaccess and permalinks (4 posts)

    I have an issue with permalinks. I am not really sure it is related to .htaccess, but here it goes

    - When I selece permalink to year/month/day in the main installation (mu) of http://www.mydomain.tld, it works fine

    - But when I select permalink in any of the subdomains, e.g. blogname.mydomain.tld, it does not work.

    I have transcribed the .htaccess below, which is the same as the htaccess.dist, so I dont understand why the permalink of the main site is working without changes in the .htaccess

    Thanks for helping,


    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /

    #uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/$ index.php [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !.*wp-content/plugins.*
    RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/(.*) wp-content/blogs.php?file=$2 [L]

    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^.*/wp-admin$
    RewriteRule ^(.+)$ $1/ [R=301,L]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule . - [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-.*) $2 [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*\.php)$ $2 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    <Files async-upload.php>
    SecFilterEngine Off
    SecFilterScanPOST Off

    Most probably a wild-card issue. Ask you service provider, is this support enable? If not, ask them to enable it.

    Thanks Tanvir,

    I have access to the server, and have activated in Plesk the following:

    * CNAME

    Is this what you mean about wildcard?

    Is this what you mean about wildcard?

    The readme file included with your download contains instructions on the wildcard. Have you reviewed them and the other instructions in that file?

    Anything in the webserver's error logs?

    Do the subdomains work in general?

    Could you please define "It doesn't work"? Are you getting a 404 page? Some other sort of error? Is the error produced by the browser, webserver or mu?

    Just for reference, you may want to review this debugging page linked to from the readme file. To be honest, if you're coping your htaccess file, not checking your webserver's error logs, and using mydomain.tld as your url, chances are you haven't:
