When setting up multiple Wordpress multi-sites, the "My Sites" Network Admin functions all point to the same base site.

I set up two seperate Wordpress on a newly-spun Ubuntu server following these directions:

Everything worked fine at that point, but I then enabled multi-site on the separate Wordpress installations. For that I followed the directions here:

I ran into the topic issue; while one installation works fine, when I try to access the “My Sites” functionality, as soon as I hover over any of the Network Admin links, the second site links to the admin functions of the first. All the links otherwise (except the circular refresh plugins icon at the top) on the second site work correctly, it’s just the Network Admin stuff.

Any thoughts on what would cause this?

In your wp-config.php files, what did you uses for DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE? The multisite tutorial that you linked to suggests:


That might cause a problem with two setups on the same IP address. Try using the domain names instead.
