The MU forums have moved to WordPress.org

Newly created blogs on fresh install give 404 error (11 posts)

    Hello,

    I've installed MU and have the initial blog running fine. I can create new blogs in the Admin settings, but when I click on the link to view the new blog, I'm presented with a 404 error. Everything seems to be working except that new blogs are not being installed, despite messages telling me they've been successfully created.

    Any ideas where I might have gone wrong?

    Thanks
    Joss

    Did you follow all the steps in the readme file?

    Yes, and I've double checked again.

    I've not done any of the Virtual Host or DNS changes mentioned as my Apache is not configured for Virtual Hosts.

    I'm running it like this:
    http://example.com/blogs/1
    http://example.com/blogs/2
    http://example.com/blogs/3

    At the moment, only

    http://example.com/blogs/

    ...works.

    I'm still stuck. Thanks for any help.

    Joss

    check apache setting, under... symlinks I think.. AllowFileOveride All.

    Because it's not reading the htaccess file is why.

    new blogs are not being installed, despite messages telling me they've been successfully created.

    First, we need to confirm that they have been created, even if you can't view them.
    Are they listed under Site Admin / Blogs? If so, you can Edit one to see where WordPress thinks it should be (Domain and path). Check if that's pointing where you expect.

    I have the same problem. In site admin under blogs it says page is created and there. When you hit view I get a error that the page doesn't exist.

    The site URL in Site Admin / Blogs shows the expected path. /blogs/joss

    The domain and path settings are the same.

    See my post above. If permalinks aren't working and you've tried everything else, that's the last thing to check.

    See here for reference:

    I have this in the apache config:

    <Directory />
    Options FollowSymLinks
    # AllowOverride None
    AllowOverride FileInfo Options
    </Directory>

    as directed by the Wordpress MU README file.

    Not sure what you're saying about the htaccess file.

    Is this relevant?:

    #
    # AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess files.
    # It can be "All", "None", or any combination of the keywords:
    # Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
    #
    AllowOverride None

    There's no .htaccess file in the wordpressmu directory.

    Thanks for your help.

    Got it working :-)

    Changed this:

    #
    # AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess files.
    # It can be "All", "None", or any combination of the keywords:
    # Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
    #
    AllowOverride None

    To this:

    #
    # AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess files.
    # It can be "All", "None", or any combination of the keywords:
    # Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
    #
    AllowOverride All

    The blog's previously created are now displaying.

    Thanks andrea_r
