I tried to install WordPress Multi-Site. But I ran into some problems with the DB.

wp_1_posts: Table 'studioc_editionspanda.wp_1_posts' doesn't exist
wp_1_comments: Table 'studioc_editionspanda.wp_1_comments' doesn't exist
wp_1_links: Table 'studioc_editionspanda.wp_1_links' doesn't exist
wp_1_options: Table 'studioc_editionspanda.wp_1_options' doesn't exist
wp_1_postmeta: Table 'studioc_editionspanda.wp_1_postmeta' doesn't exist
wp_1_terms: Table 'studioc_editionspanda.wp_1_terms' doesn't exist
wp_1_term_taxonomy: Table 'studioc_editionspanda.wp_1_term_taxonomy' doesn't exist
wp_1_term_relationships: Table 'studioc_editionspanda.wp_1_term_relationships' doesn't exist
wp_1_commentmeta: Table 'studioc_editionspanda.wp_1_commentmeta' doesn't exist

What do I do?

  • "I tried to install", and how was that? – brasofilo Nov 1 '13 at 8:20
  • WordPress installed well. It's when I followed the instructions for multi-site setup that I received a error message with the DB. – jnbdz Nov 1 '13 at 15:47

You most probably only added one of the following in your wp-config.php file thinking they were the same, as m73mitchell and I had done:

define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);
define('MULTISITE', true);

I couldn't find any documentation why they have this counterintuitive setup, but just add the one you missed and it should work.
