    Hi,

    I get the famous error 404 when I try to activate via e-mail a blog. File htaccess.dist looks like this:

    °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /

    # Rewrite http://www.domain.com to domain.com
    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]

    °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°
    and activation link like this:
    http://blogname.mydomain.com/wpmu/wp-activate.php?key=615b2b4283e25b68

    Then I have tried to create it manually but I get the following (civispla_wpmu is my database):

    WordPress database error: [Table 'civispla_wpmu.wp_4_options' doesn't exist]
    SELECT option_value FROM wp_4_options WHERE option_name = 'wp_4_user_roles' LIMIT 1

    WordPress database error: [Table 'civispla_wpmu.wp_4_options' doesn't exist]
    SELECT option_value FROM wp_4_options WHERE option_name = 'blogname' LIMIT 1

    WordPress database error: [Table 'civispla_wpmu.wp_4_options' doesn't exist]
    SELECT option_value FROM wp_4_options WHERE option_name = 'siteurl' LIMIT 1

    WordPress database error: [Table 'civispla_wpmu.wp_4_options' doesn't exist]
    SELECT option_value FROM wp_4_options WHERE option_name = 'post_count' LIMIT 1

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

    Don't know what to do. Can anybody help? Let me know if you need more infos.

    Thanks

    Right there is your issue. You've installed teh software into a subdirectory and your trying to run subdomsins off of it. Can't do both. If you need to run subdomains, the software going into the root of the domain. I believe it says that in the install instructions.

    quitter.

    Did you try reinstalling and making sure to use the correct 'subdomain' or 'sub-directory' option?

    If the poster can't read the install instructions included in the download, gotta admit that WPMu is probably not for them.

    Agreed, Doc.

    Unfortunately, MU isn't for everyone, as bad as they may think it is.

    I'm not a quitter, that's why, after a couple of days I decided not to give up (and by the way I have read the instructions...9.
    So:
    1) I have installed wpmu in the root directory
    2) Choosed the subdomain option
    3) Tried to manually create a blog

    what I've got:

    1) Email message stating that blog was created and web address what exactly what i have chosen
    2)This error message:
    ======================================
    WordPress database error: [Table 'civispla_wpmu.wp_3_options' doesn't exist]
    SELECT option_value FROM wp_3_options WHERE option_name = 'wp_3_user_roles' LIMIT 1

    WordPress database error: [Table 'civispla_wpmu.wp_3_options' doesn't exist]
    SELECT option_value FROM wp_3_options WHERE option_name = 'blogname' LIMIT 1

    SELECT option_value FROM wp_3_options WHERE option_name = 'siteurl' LIMIT 1

    ==========================================

    But, if I go BACK with my browser and I refresh the admin page the blog is apperaring in the blog list. I have also checked with PhPmyadmin if 'civispla_wpmu.wp_3_options' table was there and it was.

    I don't know how to configure Apache.

    What I should do then. I'm lost...

    I thought so, but can't say for sure when, or if it didn't poke it's head back up.

    Well lets ask this. Did the blog get created? In the past the blog was getting created anyway and the error was moot.

    Also is this occuring when the site admin create the blog or when someone signs up?

    1) Yes, I get the error message listed above and, as I said, the blog is created (but not working).

    2) As Admin I get that long SQL error. As user I get the link for activation with the chosen subdomain but when I follow the link I get: "address not found...etc". In this case blog is not created.

    If you want to test it try to set up your own blog at http://www.civisplanet.com

    Ok, drmike...

    I set up WPmu as a subdirectory and when I go to the admin area to add a user, I get this...

    WordPress database error: [Table 'vineyard_blog.wp_2_options' doesn't exist]
    SELECT option_value FROM wp_2_options WHERE option_name = 'wp_2_user_roles' LIMIT 1

    A few things to note:

    Any suggestions?

    Preety much. I think you found the one thread where I didn't copy the answer to. Do a search for 'wp d e' spelled out I don't want to throw the search engine results any more than they are. Search for the three words in teh error starting with those letters as I copied all teh threads I could to teh fix for it.

    Hi,

    I'm having getting the 404 error from the activation emails. Also noticing that I don't actually see the subdomain created (when I browse it in my ftp browser).

    Host says wildcards are set and php settings are fine.

    However, I'm wondering if my problem is the domain root level.

    The domain is pointing to an essentially an add-on domain/subdomain (I moved it over from an old host).

    Is that just impossible to do with WPMU?

    Thanks.

    Yep.

    Make sure the domain points to root and you install in the root. About half the time, anything else screw MU right up.

    "I don't actually see the subdomain created (when I browse it in my ftp browser)."

    That's because they're virtual, and served from the database.

    If I "add on" the domain, but stick it in the public_html "root" level, will that work?

    No, it won't.

    "That's because they're virtual, and served from the database."

    Meaning: They don't physically exist.

    Sorry, my addon domain question was regarding the install itself and andrea_r's most recent post.

    "Make sure the domain points to root and you install in the root. About half the time, anything else screw MU right up."

    So going back to my question:

    If I "add on" the domain (via cpanel), but stick it in the public_html "root" level, will that work?

  27. lunabyte

    It should, yes, because that parked domain would point to the site root (along with your primary domain tied to your account).
