    Links inside MU default to the format but always fail while if I remove the www to simply the links work.

    How do I fix this? I'm installed into the subdirectory b of course.

    are you with dreamhost?

    If so, change your set up to always remove it (remove the www).

    I had that issue with an old host (Hostgator), I moved hosts.

    Might help us help you if you told us what yout .htaccess file looks like, what changes you're done to your DNS, etc.

    You have some serious issues though. actually reloads to

    When you click the 'b' subdirectory, we do get the WPMU install but it appears your themes are broken since no CSS loads.

    edit: Something must be wrong with your install since I can't even get to load.

    I've done NO changes to dns.
    Files outside of wordpress resolve with or without the www. Only wordpress files fail to work with the www. format.

    .htaccess is as follows
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /b/

    # Rewrite to
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.(.*)
    RewriteRule ^(.*) http://%1/$1 [R,L]

    #uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^(.*)?/?files/(.*) wp-content/blogs.php?file=$2 [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]

    I deleted the .htaccess file and it seems to work now. Does anyone know why my installation at would work without the .htaccess file whereas normally this file is apparently required (created during the installation)?

    Wrong! When the .htaccess file is deleted then the admin/main login, page, theme, and everything works normal. However, user pages can't even be found.

    I have 2 ordinary users defined which are dgwade and pappaw. With the .htaccess file as installed these weblogs work successfully. But the admin user works strangely if at all (only with, never with

    With the .htaccess file removed, the admin user works fine BUT the ordinary users don't work at all (not found, and can't login).

    Still need help here!

    If it helps, I got the following in the error.log when installing:

    [25-Aug-2006 15:16:08] install_blog - ID: 1 URL: http://com/b/snapblogger/ Title: Your WebLog Community

    Notice the http://com/b/snapblogger/ where com should be and snapblogger was never intentionally specified as a subdirectory or path beyoud /b/ . The installation was intended to be and using that url works whereas using does not work.

    Not really resolved BUT after deleting the existing install and installing under a single subdomain as in my.domain.tld it seems to work successfully now. I did this because simple domain.tld/b/ worked but http://www.domain.tld/b/ did not work. Installed as my.domain.tld there is only one domain which removed the complication.

    I'm having a similar problem as dgwade. Everything works if I go to , but if I include the www and go to it forwards to (which doesn't exist). The automatically created .htaccess file must have some problem...

    I wanted to add that I had to delete the htaccess file, as well. My situation is that I have aliased to and when someone would enter the htaccess file was causing them to go to and that was causing an internal server error.
