Weird problem, wpmu 1.5.1 (11 posts)

    Just found out that old users cant create new blogs. If they try to create a new blog, it will tell them it was created and to login into it, but when visiting the new blog it will redirect to /wp-admin/install.php and that file doesnt exist so they get the main blog's 404.

    When I check the dashboard under my main account I can see that the new blog was added, but it does not get added into the database. I havent touched anything for weeks and it seems like it just broke yesterday >_<

    Has anyone experienced this? Why would it redirect to /install.php?

    Well, files donn't change themself either, so something had to change.

    And servers are run by your host, unless you have it in your house. Something very well could have been updated on the server - new cpanel code, new apache... something.

    Did your webhost run maintenance over the weekend?

    I have a dedicated box that only I have access to. There is nothing in the logs. I know files dont change themself, thats why I find it weird because it seems like nothing changed.

    Can things like cpanel and WHM update themselfs?

    Ok, just upgraded to 2.6.2 and now instead of the redirect I get this:

    The blog you have requested is not installed properly. Please contact the system administrator.

    VHOSTS is set to NO, db charset is set to utf8 and when I check my databases via phpmyadmin they are all set to utf8_general_ci

    New blogs are simply not getting added to the database :(

    Just checked the logs and there is nothing.

    I also tried another proposed fix that worked for another user here which removed the utf8 from the config file and was able to fix the problem, but this didnt work for me.

    Ok, got something in the logs:

    [06-Oct-2008 15:07:03] WordPress database error Unknown character set: 'utf-8' for query SET NAMES 'utf-8' made by require_once

    Now, what files are called when creating a new blog?

    Edit: nevermind, its not because of this. I dont know what to do, it just broke all of a sudden >_<

    Fixed! (I think)

    I am using the Multi-db solution, and had Statpress plugin running. I deleted the plugin and I can now create blogs again.

    Just a heads up for anyone in the same situation.
