In #29684 the idea of saving the main site id as a network option was floated. It has a number of briefs, including.

  • Ability to change main site id
  • Easy to find main site id using database query
  • Result is cached and never needs to be looked up.

When will the domain and path of the main site ID not match what’s in wp_blogs?

Doesn’t it put the cart before the horse to store this site ID in network meta, because wp_blogs needs to get queried to know which site and network to load anyways, and the network knows what it’s main site is?

Sorry to cut this off, and thanks for being proactive @spacedmonkey, but I think this ticket can be considered a duplicate of #29684, where the conversation about how best to determine the network's main site ID has been happening. That needs to be resolved before a ticket like this can be effective. And, if we do end up storing it as a network option, then the patch on #29684 should cover that initial storage as well.

@johnjamesjacoby There's a bit of back and forth around this on #29684. Can you chime in there?
