I have a single AWS instance, and purchased the bitnami Wordpress image and configured a very simple starter Wordpress site.
Then the need came to have additional domains, but with different static html content.
I would like to enable Wordpress multisite and continue to use a single AWS image to host several dis-joint sites, as they each have minimal traffic.
I believe I followed the directions at from the doc
steps I followed
1) back everything up
2) bn config
sudo ./bnconfig --machine_hostname our-planets.com
sudo mv bnconfig bnconfig.disabled
3) edit htdocs/wp-config.php and inserted
4) on the site admin page navigate to
I do see the following on the network setup page
"Warning: An existing WordPress network was detected.
Please complete the configuration steps. To create a new network, you will need to empty or remove the network database tables."
I paste the two blocks of code into wp-config.php and .htaccess
5) I clear the cookies for the site in chrome
6) I can see the main site index page
7) but if i try to log in via .../wp-login it redirects me to 127.0.0.1
seems I am getting into a redirect on wp-admin like this poster.
I am not sure I understand the suggested resolution.
I tried pasting the contents of
onto the end of
then tried to login to the wp-admin but it still redirects.
If I revert wp-conf.php, .htaccess, and htaccess.conf then the main single site and wp-admin access is restored.
So I am getting goofed up somewhere along the way
I did try a bunch of other steps that google turned up but am still stuck.
Could be I am not doing what the warning suggested in step four...
If so exactly what needs to be done? I am not experienced with WP admin
