New registrations not working

  • The link /wp-signup.php is not working from the “create a new account” button or the signup button. I am getting an error with Firefox: “Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.” I checked the .htaccess file to see if there was anything in there that could be causing it but nothing turns up. I do have registration for new accounts enabled. I also have a bbpress integration and when a user registers for a new account there, it works no problem and creates the buddypress user as well. But on the homepage for the buddypress activity I can’t get the signup link to work. Any ideas?

  • Could this be the issue? … I had originally installed my wordpressmu under /wordpress-mu/ but then moved it to the root later. My config file says:

    /** The Database Collate type. Don’t change this if in doubt. */

    define(‘DB_COLLATE’, ”);

    define(‘VHOST’, ‘yes’);

    $base = ‘/wordpress-mu/’;

    define(‘DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘’ );

    define(‘PATH_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘/’ );

    define(‘SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE’, 1);

    define(‘BLOGID_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘1’ );

    Is wrong with editing by hand and chaning the $base = ‘/wordpress-mu/’; ?? Everything on my site works fine except registrations. I don’t even know if this is the cause.

    Possibly. There may be something else in the database with regards to the path. I wouldn’t recommend moving an installation, I’d personally always reinstall it.

    Are you using any custom slugs and when you try to register, is there anything in your web server log? Also please see

    There’s nothing in the apache logs. I’m not using any custom slugs. The config file has been updated. Is there anything else it could be before I go through the trouble of re-installing?

    I went into the database and updated the wp_site table with the correct URL. Now when I click on “Create Account” it no longer gives the error. It directs to a page with this URL:

    however… you cannot register there. You can only login. I do have registrations enabled for users but not blogs. Any idea what could be causing this?

    Safari error: “Too many redirects occurred trying to open “”. This might occur if you open a page that is redirected to open another page which then is redirected to open the original page.”

    I’m not sure how I would go about re-installing because I have my bbpress installation already integrated as well as buddypress operating with a couple users. Anyone know how to retain this data and reinstall?
