WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've just installed wordpress on our Rackspace server - I've set wordpress up for Multisite as I have done many times before.

The main wordpress site at the root functions fine - however when I add a new site and click on either 'backend' or 'visit' I get 'page not found'.

Pages in the main site seem to work fine with the default permalink settings but not custom such as /%category%/%postname%/

I think this must be a server issue but am a bit stumped.

Any suggestions appreciated!

Do you have an htaccess file? –  Bainternet Feb 2 '11 at 19:07

Yeah the server is not reading the htaccess file properly.

may need AllowOverride FileInfo Options in the httpd.conf file for that vhost.

Thanks very much, I posted a ticket with rackspace and that's exactly what they did. Had figured it was to do with the htaccess just wasn't aware of the fix. –  tbwcf Feb 3 '11 at 10:01
