I'm asking you your help because I created a network websites :

  • example.com/site1/
  • example.com/site2/

The installation was done and the tab "My Sites" is available with both websites. I applied the same Alpine theme to the websites.

However, I don't know if i must to upload some file in the directories /site1 and /site2 to the FTP server. The directories are empty.

If i open the url http://www.example.com/site1/ I got this :

a busy cat

On the site1 Dashboard, a page is created and configured to be displayed by default as a static page :

a busy cat

Thank you very much for your advices (and sorry for my poor english!).

Best regards, Lionel

    There should not be a site1 and site2 folder on your server. Those sites are served via rewrite rules

1 Answer 1


You have site1 and site2 folders on your server, so Apache is serving those hence the file listing.

Multisite however is trying to serve those sites using URL rewriting, so deleting those folders should fix the issue
