    Hi there, I upgraded both the wp-hive (0.6) and to WP 3 and now I am unable to login into the sub-directory admin areas of the various sub sites

    any chance of steering me in the right direction, please?



    You should refresh your .htaccess file by saving your permalinks on a root site’s wp-admin (non-subdirectory).



    thanks for the reply .. I shall work on this later

    all the site admin areas give the same

    so needs a little work



    this is the permalink .htaccess I should refresh manually

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>

    RewriteEngine On

    RewriteBase /

    RewriteRule ^index.php$ – [L]

    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?wp-admin$ $1wp-admin/ [R=301,L]

    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $2 [L]

    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*.php)$ $2 [L]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d

    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]


    is there anything else that should be in the .htaccess, please?

    Thanks for everything



    Yes – this is exactly what .htaccess should contain.

    You should then be able to log into your wp-admin using:


    Let me know how it goes.



    when I go to under the main admin it sends me to a page


    which states

    No Upgrade Required

    Your WordPress database is already up-to-date!

    then I click continue and it takes me back to


    I am not sure whether I am missing something somewhere

    Thanks again



    OK .. some further feedback .. I added a new site /mobiles via wp-hive and I can login to the new sites wp-admin

    but not the old sites, somehow it is looking to upgrade the old sites

    I hope this helps

    Thanks again, I was on the verge of giving up


    ps.. as mentioned in another thread

    I am interested in whether this would also be achievable – so if we were to create WP3 multi in subdomains and run wp-hive in sub-directories without conflict you would fully justify wp-hive (for me)



    Please check that the ‘siteurl’ and ‘home’ options are both set to the full URL of the site.

    Because you don’t have access to wp-admin right now, you will need to to this by manually editing the options in the database. Here is a page that discusses this procedure. You will need to check both siteurl and home, for each site that you are having this issue with. Each site will have its own options table, beginning with a unique prefix.



    As for the second request: At this time, Multisite and WP Hive are not compatible. It appears Multisite will ‘take over’ the installation, so you will not have proper access to any WP Hive sites if you activate Multisite.



    thank you .. went through the process and can now login to each admin area

    many thanks




    I just upgraded WP Hive on my site and after messing around and following the troubleshooting I still can’t login to the older Hive sites I set up. I can view them on the site but can’t get into the admin. I get a redirect back to the root install.

    My siteurl and home are the same. And when I create a new Hive site it works just fine.

    Any suggestions?



    I figured it out.
