[resolved] Domain alias taking me to wp-signup.php (13 posts)

    I have the primary domain of my network as domain.com but also an alias domainAlias.com that points back to domain.com. When I try to visit domainAlias.com, instead of taking me to the home page of domain.com, I get taken to this address:

    http://domain.com/wp-signup.php?new=domainAlias.com

    Any ideas? I'm not entirely sure this is a multisite issue but my searches so far seem to imply it is.

  2. An alias as in you want domainAlias.com to show up in the browser bar?

    Yes. Precisely. But entering that domain in the address bar takes me to the link I mentioned above which is weird.

    It seems by what I've recently read I need to do something with domain mapping to get it to work.

  4. No. Well ... yes but no because you cannot domain map the primary domain of your Multisite. You can do it for subsites, just not the main one.

    Ok what if I just want domainAlias.com to point to domain.com but domain.com is what shows in the browser bar? Is that possible? Because at the moment I'm getting that link I mentioned above.

  6. You can have DomainAlias.com redirect to domain.com, if that's what you mean, and that's entirely on your webhost's end.

    Yes. I already have it set up on my webhost end. But when I enter domainAlias.com into my browsers address bar, I get taken to this page:

    http://domain.com/wp-signup.php?new=domainAlias.com

    Instead of just to domain.com

  8. Do you have any domain mapping plugins installed?

    No I don't.

  10. Is it set up as a parked domain, a redirect, or what?

    It's a domain pointer set as an alias.

  12. That's why. It needs to be a redirect.
