    I've got a problem that's just cropped up in recent days and I have no idea what happened. I'm hoping that someone could point me in the right direction.

    When new users sign up, their blogs appear in the Site Admin interface, but when I go to take a look at them, the following error appears:
    It doesn't look like you've installed WP yet. Try running install.php.

    This has just recently started happening, and I haven't made any changes to the code since making the Premium Plugins work. I've had some splogs appear since then, so I'm somewhat sure that that's not the culprit.

    I didn't find anything after a search except for year-old posts which all advised updating to the then-latest code (my codebase is from January). Any ideas?

    Actually I'm having this issue as well. I can't dupe it though. I'm wondering if somehow the site is being "created" before the account is verified.

    I tried creating a new blog, and I got a page full of this:

    WordPress database error: [Table 'MY_DB_NAME.wp_23_options' doesn't exist]

    I'm wondering if a plugin might be the culprit, but I don't know which one because I did test several over the past few days. They didn't work well with WPMU (or at all) so I removed them before making them live. I'm currently looking at the last few plugins I downloaded, but I'm not too sure where to begin looking.

    What might cause this error?

    How are you creating this blog? If it's via the Site Admin interface, that's a known issue, has been much discussed already, and a search will turn up threads on the topic. The blog does get created.

    The issue I'm having is with folks from outside signing up for blogs.

    By using wp-signup.php

    my site had this same problem,

    after registered fromwp-signup.php, it just didn't creat the mysql tables...

    so, errors will be :

    It doesn't look like you've installed WP yet. Try running install.php.

    and, if you click install.php to install,

    the url will turn into a loop:

    from: http:://yourdomain/wp-admin/install.php
    to: http:://yourdomain/wp-admin/wp-admin/install.php
    and then: http:://yourdomain/wp-admin/wp-admin/wp-admin/install.php

    Just noticed that my error logs are filled with /wp-register.php calls. I'm wondering if we have a misnamed file yet again.

    Issue still exists. Getting a "Blog Object failed to complete activation." error in my error log. A search for that error doesn't turn anything up though.

    I go through the entire process (ie sign up, get the email, click on the link) and stops within the wp-activate.php file. last line kicked out is the:

    </style>

    The next line is the checking of the key within the URL.

    Any ideas?

    Not a clue. Mine works fine. :(

    Silly question but how many characters are supposed to be in that key within the "Click on me to confirm" email?

    edit: The annoying part if that error message is not listed in the code anywhere.

    Solved it on my end. It was that avatar plugin. Deleted it and everything's fine now.

    Of course we don't have avatars....

    drmike,

    what do you mean? my site doesn't have this avatar plugin,

    new users still can't register a blog,because the mysql tables won't create.

    Have you installed any new plugins recently? You may want to try turning them off to see if it works then.

    Upgrading to 1.2.1 appears to have fixed the issue. I'm no longer getting signup issues and the spammers now on my WPMu install are happy once again.

    Okey I think the update on wpmu-functions.php file is what causing this. So I reverted back to an older build and the problem is not happening.

    I reverted back to build r910.

    I updated wpmu from 1.0 to 1.2.3 and I'm having same trouble as you. When someone tries to register a blog, the same error appears: "It doesn't look like you've installed WP yet. Try running install.php".
    I'm desesperately because tried to reinstall previous versions but not luck :( I tried all I read from you but don't work.

    What can I do??

    -I updated from 1.0.0 to 1.2.3
    -I checked .htacess and all is ok
    -I ran the upgrade tool from administration several times
    -wp-config.php is ok and I uploaded right files.

    I logged in to the siteadmin and tried to delete all the blogs created for testing, and i got a long list of errors like:

    WordPress database error: [Table 'gathacol_nublogs.wp_105_options' doesn't exist]
    SELECT option_value FROM wp_105_options WHERE option_name = 'wp_105_user_roles' LIMIT 1

    WordPress database error: [Table 'gathacol_nublogs.wp_105_options' doesn't exist]
    SELECT option_value FROM wp_105_options WHERE option_name = 'blogname' LIMIT 1

    WordPress database error: [Table 'gathacol_nublogs.wp_105_options' doesn't exist]
    SELECT option_value FROM wp_105_options WHERE option_name = 'siteurl' LIMIT 1

    WordPress database error: [Table 'gathacol_nublogs.wp_105_options' doesn't exist]
    SELECT option_value FROM wp_105_options WHERE option_name = 'post_count' LIMIT 1

    WordPress database error: [Table 'gathacol_nublogs.wp_106_options' doesn't exist]
    SELECT option_value FROM wp_106_options WHERE option_name = 'post_count' LIMIT 1

    And so on with each blog.

    At the end of the page it says:

    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/gathacol/public_html/wp-includes/wp-db.php:135) in /home/gathacol/public_html/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 334

    Does this help in anything?

    What version of wpmu are you using?

    Can you provide a link to your wpmu install?

    im using 1.2.3 downloaded yesterday, now im really scared, my home page displays an error 500 but other blogs keep working, also i am now getting AN AWFUL LOT of core dump files everywhere. (in the root directory and in /wp-content/plugins/)

    I downloaded and installed again, removed all plugins and mu-plugins and i can't create new blogs.

    my installation is at gathacol.net an example blog is radioblog.gathacol.net

    Could this be a problem in the database's tables? something like a new table created by a plugin that don't let MU create new blogs?

    or this just isnt possible?

    I have a similar problem.
    I installed MU 1.2.3 in the folder /blogs/ when new users creation its Blogs everything seems OK, (create de User register, the activation email is sent)

    However: blog is not create, for example:

    if TESTE blog was created, then blog does not exist or it cannot be had access in:

    http://dotthost.com.br/blogs/TESTE/

    Somebody has the solution?

    Sorry my English I use Altavista Translator.

    "Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/gathacol/public_html/wp-includes/wp-db.php:135) in /home/gathacol/public_html/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 334"

    This means there is whitespace at the end of those files. Edit them and scroll to the very bottom and make sure that there is NOTHING after the last ?>
    That should clear some errors anyway.
