    I have upgraded to 1.3 from 1.2.4. I deleted all folders and files except .htaccess, wp-config.php, and the directory /wp-content

    I have already referred to this post: and the suggestions there have not solved my problem.

    After adding new blogs, I do not receive notification from system, I cannot access the blog through URL or the backend. Accessing the URL either front end or backend leads me to to the blog leads me to

    I tried bumping up the sql version in /wp-includes/version.php but it did not help either.

    Any help appreciated.

    Any information about your server?

    This was noted in a recent trac ticket, although under a different set of circumstances, but a recent fix that's in the latest trac revision corrected a similar issue. As a side benefit, it also corrected this (which wasn't a widespread problem, but did cause certain version of mysql to bork).

    OK. made the following changes to the wp-config file

    define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf-8');

    changed to
    define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');

    THis seems to have had the following effect. I am now able to add blogs. But for some strange reason they are not listed on the home page (I use the list all posts plugin). Please see I have added the blog test but the same is not displayed on home page.

    Same problem here after upgrading from 1.3.2 to 1.3.3. A new user registered a blog. Right after entering the activation code he was redirected to /wp-admin/install.php. No blog-tables were created.

    Though an existing user registered a new blog and everything worked.

    Running a vhost-Install on Apache 2.2.3 and Mysql 5.x an PHP 5.1.x. I never had problems with db-charset utf-8.

    Mhh, I see this also now on a testblog, I wonder if this is plugin related.

    Is there any resolution to this? I am experiencing several issues with WPmu after an upgrade from 1.1.1 (to 1.3.3). Whenever a new blog is added, any attempt to access that blog redirects you to /wp-admin/install.php, which does not exist in this version of WPmu . I am running

    Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4
    Apache 2.0.59
    PHP 5.2.3

    I performed a clean install of the extracted files and selectively copied over old files (plugins, themes, wp-config.php)

    I guess this could answered by someone who knows if there is supposed to be an install.php in wp-admin, or if the browser is being incorrectly redirected.

    Plugins installed: NiceAdmin, SK2, Per User Themes

    Check and see if the tables exist in the database. My guess is not (I've had this error before).

  13. epheph

    No, no tables are being created. Although a row is inserted into the "wp_blogs" table.

    I figured it was the 'install.php' that created this since that is where I'm being redirected?

    Any ideas? It's going to be a problem real soon when we need to add more blogs.
