I've set up a WordPress multi-site installation and am having trouble getting the images and permalinks working in my subdomain sites.

My understanding is that this problem could be a conflict associated with being on a shared hosting plan since the image location is written as the server IP.

Can anyone speak to whether this sounds like the source of the issue?

The problem was a missing .htaccess file. There is a .htaccess file (the one that is 502 bytes) that may have a space or invisible character on the end of the file name in your app's directory. A correctly named .htaccess file was not present. We created a new one with information from your most recent backup. The contents of this file are needed so that WordPress can correctly redirect to the individual site directories.
