Three problems, can someone help (10 posts)

    I know that I had this as a reply to another thread but since I noticed there are three issues I thought I'd create a new thread and hope that someone can help.

    1) If you go to old blogs (for example) you get "No WPMU site defined on this host."

    2) New blogs now sign up as

    rather than

    3) old blogs 'blog name' in the admin panel just shows up as / and nothing more.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this.

    Should I wait to resolve this or upgrade to 1.5.1 now? (Don't want to lose the blogs)

    It looks like your MU installation has switched from sub-domains to directories.
    Have you done a new installation or upgrade recently?

    Yeah he did. I remembered where this is set (I think). Check the htaccess file and look for vhost=true

    thanks for the replies.
    Do you mean in WP_config? because that's where vhost is.

    In .htaccess there isn't that line.

    Do I just add vhost=true ?

    I thought that just upgrading should be straightforward (since I always have) it just seems that the past to updates haven't been going as smoothly as they used to go.

    Anyway, here's my .htaccess

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    #uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/$ index.php [L]
    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]


    Here's my wp_config at the moment. (the first lines.

    define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');
    define('DB_COLLATE', '');
    define('VHOST', 'VHOSTSETTING');
    $base = '/';

    If I change

    then at the top of the control panel I see this
    "p'); ?>"

    And it doesn't fix the blogs issue.

    I hope that isn't your database information and if it is, edit the thread ;)

    sorry if I'm bumping the thread but I just want to update it with my changes in case some kind soul needs it to help me out.

    I changed

    define('VHOST', 'VHOSTSETTING');

    in Wp_config


    define('VHOST', 'YES');

    Now the subdomain blogs work, however the images in a blog do not work.

    See for an example.

    Some blogs don't work though.

    There also is

    "hp'); ?>"
    on top of the working blogs.

    After having some issues with upgrade, I deleted all files and run the installation once again (database untouched).
    As for now, don't have any issues.
    All blogs and domains working.

    so you suggest to delete EVERYTHING, and run a fresh install and just leave the database settings the same?
