    Hello, I know many users have posted about this issue before but sadly I couldn't find a fix for that.

    I just installed the latest version of WPMU and all went good during the installation. Then I went through Matt instructions to add the wildcards since I'd like to have blogs like http://blog.domain.net and apparently everything's working as expected when it comes to registration of a new blog/user and activating it. So what's the problem?

    Well, the problem here is that the new registered user cannot login to it's admin space and everytime I visit http://blog.domain.net it redirects me to http://domain.net. I try to login via the frontpage http://domain.net/wp-login.php it redirects me to http://domain.net/wp-admin/?c=5 with the message You don’t have permission to view this blog. Please contact the system administrator.

    Now back to http://domain.net I can see the system recognizing me as a registered user and it shows me a link to SiteAdmin, Logout, etc. I try again clicking on SiteAdmin and same thing (You don’t have permission to view this blog. Please contact the system administrator. on http://domain.net/wp-admin/?c=5).

    I would really appreciate any fix for that since I've passed the whole night trying to figure out what's happening and even re-installed 3 times with new databases and files.

    WordPress MU version: 2.9.1.1

    If you want to try it yourself the domain is http://turostro.net

    Looking forward for a quick reply.

    TIA.

    Weird, no replies yet. This forum used to be too busy as I remember, wonder what happened.

    People might have been busy.

    Did you do all the wildcard work? Both for the DNS records and for Apache?

    Thanks goodness someone's alive.

    When I edit the httpd.conf file for the domain in question the site doesn't seem to work. I asked the tech support of my VPS provider they said the most important thing to set on for WPMU on their servers is the DNS wildcard and there is no need to edit the httpd.conf. Also, I can activate new registered blogs using http://blog-name.domain.net/wp-activate.php?key=<key&gt; but I cannot browse the blog itself. As I said on my original post, http://blog.domain.net will redirect me to http://domain.net

    Any ideas?

    You need to set the server alias or server name in the apache config file to *.domain.net

    If that isn't done then its just not going to work

    Well, I just added the stuff on httpd.conf and restarted the service. The result is shown here: http://turostro.net/

    Apparently it redirects the stuff to another domain hosted on my VPS.

    Any other ideas?

    Btw, thanks for your time Steve, I appreciate that. :)

    That would imply something wrong with the apache config for the VPS - maybe that domain has a total wild card in it?

    What do you mean by a total wildcard?

    If you are hosting more than one domain on the same IP then unless each and every virtual host is properly defined its possible for one to end up as a "catch all".

    You need to go over all the configuration items and talk to your hosting company.

    You just gave me a hint, I will change the ip of that domain to another one, and see what happens. I will feed you back when done.

    Thanks.

    Well, no results.

    Firefox returned the following message.

    The page isn't redirecting properly 
    
    Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

    I am having a similar problem. I have been through the complete installation like 8 times. I am not using wildcard domains. I am trying to use subdirectories.

    I removed .htaccess, figuring that this would at least give me a different error. There might be something in wordpress that is redirecting in an endless loop (with the php header() function, I imagine).

    It might be some setup in Apache though. I am going to look around in the forums some more. Ironically, the first time I installed, I forgot to move it from wildcard subdomains to subdirs and the whole installation went fine.

    Sigh.
