[resolved] activation link not working for new sites creation (13 posts)

    Hi,

    I am having a serious issue with making WordPress Network to work properly. I have followed all instructions on the WordPress site, however, I am trying in vain to add new site as sub-domain to work.

    I had set up my wordpress on my add-on domain and after installation was over, I tried to register myself for a blog as subdomain. I received an activation link to activate my blog and when i click on it, it brings up the default "Error Page 404 - page not found". And if I go onto the subdomain, I would find the default page provided by my web host but no blogs...

    I've un-installed WordPress twice and this time I even removed the add-on domain first and started all over again from scratch in order to ensure that it works fine. However, it is still not working.

    Please can anyone advise how I could resolve this issue?

    All help is the most welcome. Thank you.

  2. And if I go onto the subdomain, I would find the default page provided by my web host but no blogs...

    Then you did the subdomain mapping wrong.

    How did you map the wildcard subdomains?

    Well to be honest i am not sure i've done any mapping at all...i know i've set up wildcard subdomains in my CP. I followed instructions from wordpress website on how to set up WP Network and it doesn't talk about mapping. The site where WP is installed is http://www.mowebsite.com and this is an add-on domain, my primary domain initially registered with my web host being a diffrent domain. The wildcard subdomain *.mowebsite.com was set at the root folder. Is there anything that i should be doing please?

  4. Pali, dude, deleted your posts. Make your own topic. It'll be easier to help YOU that way :)

    Mr_K, go ask your host. Normally that should be fine, but some hosts don't let you wildcard an add-on like that.

    Thank you very much Ipstenu,

    I actually contacted my host provider and they confirmed that they allow wildcard, however, it was a dead end as they they can't seem to know where the problem is. They even advised me to remove everything and restart over....which i patiently did 3 times now :(

    So now i am turning myself to the wordpress community for further help.....

  6. Something's wrong in your wildcard mapping: http://testing.mowebsite.com/ should go to http://mowebsite.com/wp-signup.php?=testing

    So... where's your wildcard pointed to? And where is mowebsite on the server?

    It's an addon, so is it like /public_html/mowebsite ?

    Well I have checked CPanel and after clicking on the subdomain option, I have the following configuration:

    (1) subdomain.Root domain is: *.mowebsite.com
    (2) document root is: public_html/
    (3) Redirection: Not directed

    My primary account is logixtix.com and mowebsite.com is an add-on domain.

    I am not sure if this is the information you requested. If this is not, could you please guide to where i could get further information for you please?

    Thank you Ipstenu, much appreciated.

    Also after clicking on the Addon Domains option, I have the following configuration:

    (1) Addon domain is: mowebsite.com
    (2) document root is: public_html/mowebsite.com
    (3) Redirection: Not redirected

    Hope the above helps.....

  9. Wait...

    (1) Addon domain is: mowebsite.com
    (2) document root is: public_html/mowebsite.com

    and

    (1) subdomain.Root domain is: *.mowebsite.com
    (2) document root is: public_html/

    Do you see what I see?

    Make it
    (1) subdomain.Root domain *.mowebsite.com
    (2) document root is: public_html/mowebsite.com
