User Sites (Blogs) showing the data however themes nor dashboard working!

    Hey Everyone,

    I just migrated my WordPress Mu/Buddypress from one server to another. Everything seems to be working ok and pointing to the new server. However, when I checked the users blogs… the info from the database is populating however, the theme/css isn’t showing and then I tried to log onto the dashboard and that isn’t working either! At first I thought it had something to do with the fact that I upgraded to WPMU 3.0 but I believe I’ve ruled this out. My main site is working perfectly… just not sure why the users blogs aren’t working.

    The reason that I think I’ve rule out a WPMU error is because I’ve check a bunch of settings and end up thinking it might be in my wp-config.php (the fact that MULTIUSER was set to false)… but changing it to true didn’t do anything.

    I’d really appreciate some help since my community is really looking forward to updating their blogs.

    Thanks!!!!

    Silly question, but did you upload the theme and activate it on the blog?

    that’s the thing… the themes are all activated sitewide but I’m not able to enter the dashboard for these specific blogs in order to modify the theme. So it’s kind of a double whammy problem. None of my users can access their dashboard, nor see their themes on their blog.
    In my database, I modified all instances of http://joliepapeterie.com/wordpress-mu/ (old server) to point to the new server http://myindiejunction.com/
    So I know the links are pointing in the right direction since the info is showing up… just the ability to manage the blogs has disappeared?

    It looks as though wordpress isn’t installed for any of the extra users. There’s no dashboard, login… nothing! So would this in fact be a buddypress issue or should I be contacting WordPress.org?

    According to Boone, user themes are broken in WordPress 3.0:

    does this mean that BuddyPress is not compatibe with WP 3.0 ?
    Will the BP-GroupBlog-Plugin still work ?

    Just re-reading Boone’s blog post and I think the link I provided isn’t applicable to viau5’s problem.

    Disregard what I wrote.

    Looks promising… but it didn’t do anything for me. I mean, I did step 3 and 4 (couldn’t find userthemes.php anywhere in my install). So it’s still not working. I really think that my issue is that somehow, wordpress isn’t installed for any of my users (the main WPMU is working but not the added install on the backend for all my users). I’m wondering if I should somehow downgrade back to WPMU 2.9?

    Check your htaccess file. I’m guessing it’s missing or not being read by the server.

    @andrea_r is right. There is a manual edit you’ll need to make to your .htaccess file after upgrading to 3.0. Wp-content/blogs.php to wp-includes/ms-sites.php I believe? Not at my computer at the moment to say for sure.

    I’m wondering if that might be the issue though because I did make the change. Could it be that I removed the blogs.php and that’s where everything was pointing to. I was under the impression that I made all the necessary changes. This is what I changed it to.
    # BEGIN WordPress

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index.php$ – [L]

    # uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$2 [L]

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

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ – [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $2 [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*.php)$ $2 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    # END WordPress
    this is correct…right?

    Yes, that looks correct. But the only change related to image location, it wouldn’t have knocked out the blogs themselves.

    Often when you move to a new server, either the htaccess file gets left behind (it’s a hidden file remember) or the new server isn’t reading it.

    Ask your webhost. tell them you have an htaccess file that isn’t getting read.
