    Hi guys,

    I've recently attempted to install WPMU 2.6
    It seems to be working, but the login page isn't using the css files.
    Looking at the apache errorlogs, there is a / being added after the filename.

    [Thu Jul 31 16:20:13 2008] [error] [client 137.111.240.179] File does not exist: /home/www/ics/htdocs/wpmu/wp-admin/css/login.css/, referer: http://ics.mq.edu.au/wpmu/wp-login.php

    Additionally, when putting in any username or password, it redirects to the front blog page.

    Login can be seen here:
    http://ics.mq.edu.au/wpmu/wp-login.php

    Strange behavior, and I'm at a complete loss as to why this is happening. Any help would be very appreciated.

    Cheers!

    Your "file does not exist" error is being caused by the / after the file name. Apache interprets that to mean that the link is to a directory, not a file. In the absence of a file to look for in the directory, it then tries to find index.html (etc), and can't find it. That generates the error.

    The fact that you're always ending up on the front blog page suggests that the rewrite rules contained in your ../wpmu/.htaccess file aren't being executed.

    If you've upgraded from an earlier version, first thing to check is that you've remembered to copy over your old .htaccess file, and don't just have the default file (htaccess.dist) in there.

    And of course because .htaccess is in the business of rewriting URLs it may even cure the css problem. Good luck.
