First of all, I'm a total noob it terms of web-developing. I'm way over my head, I can tell you that much.
I'm trying to set up a Multisite, following this wiki: http://wiki.dreamhost.com/WordPress_Multisite
I choose the sub-directories option since I'm in a shared hosting plan.
After step 6 I try to log in to no avail. It doesn't even tell me the password is wrong, it just redirects me back to log in. (http://mysite.com/wp-login.php?redirect_to=http%3A%2F%2Fvolkazan.com%2Fwp-adm in%2F&reauth=1)
If I restore the wp-config.php and .htaccess files I can log back in. If I drop a few tables (wp_blogs wp_blog_versions wp_registration_log wp_signups wp_site wp_sitemeta) in my mysql database I loose the "a network has been detected" warning if I try to start again.
Funny thing is, I got it to "work" once, with sub-domains (it didn't actually work, but I was able to log back in). I've reinstalled wordpress quite a few times since then. I've even re-hosted the domain and change the ftp user since then.
I messed it up, that seems obvious. I can't just figure out where.
Thanks in advance to anyone trying to help me.
