Networks for WordPress
Dns and server configuration (5 posts)

    Hi there this must be the greatest plugin ever if I can get it to work! I made all the required changes except for:

    1) DNS should resolve each desired domain to your web server.
    2) Configure your web server to direct requests for each desired domain to the same site (e.g. via ServerAlias directives or Host Headers)

    How exactly do I do this? Got access to both dns and server but simply don't know what these two points mean...

    Thanks!

    Nick

    I think the easy way out if through your webhoster cpanel which there is a setting for it.

    Hi nmvddjr -

    1 - all domains (hostnames, really) should resolve to the same address (your web server). You can make other domains a CNAME of the first domain to make sure they're the same.

    2 - requests for both domains should be served by the same set of files. If you are using Apache, this is best accomplished by adding other domains as a ServerAlias to the VirtualHost for the first domain.

    Viscosity is right: if your host uses cPanel, you can use the feature "Park Domains" (I think that's what it's called) to accomplish both of these things at once.

    Feel free to post back if you have any other questions!

    -I apologise in advance for my newbieness, sometimes it takes me a while to get things. I'm determined though, your efforts won't go to waste!-

    Thanks for your replies fellows! Can we brake this down even more? I have worked with dns (mapping) and server config before but have trouble with the lingo.

    A) made a new multisite installation (subfolders): jaaadesign-networks.nl
    B) network activated Networks for WordPress
    C) made a new network: jaaadesign-networks.nl/droomdagboek-netwerk
    D) this shows up beautifully but any sites added to jaaadesign-networks.nl/droomdagboek-netwerk gets assigned to jaaadesign-networks.nl/
    E) in all ways i can check the config is good but in the end the permalink doesnt show the new network (jaaadesign-networks.nl/newsite instead of jaaadesign-networks.nl/droomdagboek-netwerk/newsite)
    F) I added the 'verifying network report' in the bottom, 'testnetwork' is the name of the new website made on the droomdagboek network.

    1) I don't have a c-panel
    2) 'All domains/hostnames' => do you mean jaaadesign-networks.nl/ and jaaadesign-networks.nl/droomdagboek-netwerk?
    3) 'adding other domains as a server alias' => which domains? And how do I do that?

    This page will perform some basic diagnostics on your Network to uncover common configuration errors. This testing is by no means exhaustive, and it is still possible to break your Network and pass all these tests.

    Checking wp_site table for selected Network by ID:

    Passed.

    Checking wp_site table for a unique combination of domain and path:

    Passed.

    Checking for super admin(s):

    Passed. Found 1 super admin

    admin
    Checking DNS for this network:

    Passed.

    Checking hosted sites for correct Network-related values:

    Site 4 (www.jaaadesign-networks.nl/testnetwerk/) has an invalid path setting.
    correct: this should be jaaadesign-networks.nl/droomdagboek-netwerk/testnetwork

    Site 5 (www.jaaadesign-networks.nl/netwerktest/) has an invalid path setting.
    correct: this should be jaaadesign-networks.nl/droomdagboek-netwerk/testnetwork

    Checking hosted sites for correct Network-related meta values:

    Site 4 (www.jaaadesign-networks.nl/testnetwerk/) has an invalid meta value in fileupload_url. This may prevent access to this site or disable some features.
    again, ofcourse

    Site 4 (www.jaaadesign-networks.nl/testnetwerk/) has an invalid meta value in home. This may prevent access to this site or disable some features.
    again

    Site 4 (www.jaaadesign-networks.nl/testnetwerk/) has an invalid meta value in siteurl. This may prevent access to this site or disable some features.
    yep

    Site 5 (www.jaaadesign-networks.nl/netwerktest/) has an invalid meta value in fileupload_url. This may prevent access to this site or disable some features.
    well, you get the idea...

    Site 5 (www.jaaadesign-networks.nl/netwerktest/) has an invalid meta value in home. This may prevent access to this site or disable some features.

    Hi nmvdvjr -

    It looks like you tried creating a network in a subfolder of an existing network. I'm not 100% on this, but I don't think that WP will recognize that second network.

    Did you test with the "Check Network Settings" button when you created your new network?
