Comment(by gazouteast):

 @duck_  Many thanks, now at least I know where it's created, but cannot
 make head nor tail of it.  The line you highlighted looks nothing like
 either the 2.9.2 version (that worked) or the version I copied from the
 forums, possibly that is the problem source for sub-blogs not displaying
 post content, and for admin pages not listing post details.

 I also noticed (the ex WPMU site I'm trying to get working) that I have no
 Network menu option anywhere, and that the media settings screen does not
 have the uploads path settings shown in the screen shot at

 So the question now kicks in that, as this was a WPMU site under 2.9.2
 rather than a WP standalone, and was auto upgraded to 3.0 ms, has the
 update script missed a whole chunk of stuff?  I re-ran the updated from
 Super Admin and from Dashboard just to be sure, but that did not resolve
 things either.

 So, returning to Duck_'s reply - if the version I've grabbed off the
 forums is for a sub-directory install, what should a DEFAULT multi-site
 3.0 htaccess contain, and why is this not documented anywhere (believe me
 I have searched relentlessly for it) and why is no
 sample_htaccess_subdom_ms.txt and sample_htaccess_subdir_ms.txt included
 in the download package?

 My original bug statement stands - in relation to htaccess upgrading the
 package is incomplete, and that incomplete condition has stopped me from
 further developing, or putting live, a bunch of sites - hence the blocker
 status I assigned to it.

 Back to forum trawling in the hope of finding a full htaccess content for
