[resolved] Domain Mapping enabling Problem - WP in root, using cpanel (11 posts)

    Hi everyone,

    Facing problem in enabling domain mapping .
    I've gone thru docs and support posts, otto's article several times. but I'm possibly missing something - in IP/Cname, Site Domain/ Path etc.

    Have already done:
    New Site under development. New WP installed in root (of bizwebx.com). Multisite network created using Subdomain option, Wildcard Subdomain created thru cpanel and pointed to root.
    Domain mapping plugin activated, have parked my domain I want mapped (domain.com) thru cpanel, have entered my shared IP in wp domain mapping page, entered domain name as domain.com, path as /testsite.bizwebx.com

    I'm not very sure on DNS. i saw thru my cpanel - My domain.com already has A record pointed to IP.

    I'm unable to enter site (of domain.com) dashboard - says it doesn't exist.
    Pl take a look. I may have done something wrong or missed some steps. Pl suggest specific steps.
    Thanks in advance !

  2. Domain mapping plugin activated, have parked my domain I want mapped (domain.com) thru cpanel, have entered my shared IP in wp domain mapping page, entered domain name as domain.com, path as /testsite.bizwebx.com

    Wait, where are you putting in that Path and why?

    The domain mapping page has a field for site ID, not path.

    Hi Mika,

    Thanks for your response.

    Sorry, I didn't explain properly -

    To add my first mapped domain site, I first went to >Network>Add Site.
    Under Site id: I enter in subdomain portion "testsite", (Subdomain is my chose option for multisite).

    Under Network>Settings>Domains: I enter:
    - Site id as 2 (its my second site as confirmed from >Network>Sites.
    - Domain as domain.com
    - primary - checked
    Saved

    when I see under >Network>Sites

    It shows in table as second site: domain.com

    I open domain.com (edit) - it shows :
    On Top: Edit Site: domain.com/testsite.bizwebx.com
    InfoUserSettingsThemes:
    Doman: domain.com
    Path: /testsite.bizwebx.com
    "Update Siteurl and home as well" is check (or ticked).
    (bizwebx.com- is my root site).

    Now under >network>Sites the table shows in second row:

    Domain: domain.com
    mapping: domain.com

    I guess something is wrong...perhaps very basic..
    I do hope I've done something correct so far !

    Pl guide. :)
    Thanks so much for reading thru :)

    Best

  4. On Network>Add Site you mean you put in testsite for "Site Address" (if it actually says SiteID, we have a problem).

    Site id as 2 (its my second site as confirmed from >Network>Sites.

    Confirmed how? The numbers aren't listed.

    Go to

    /wp-admin/network/settings.php?page=dm_domains_admin

    You should see something like this:

    Is that what you have?

    Yes, when I open the link (/wp-admin/network/settings.php?page=dm_domains_admin):

    - I see the table the way its in ur image - I've only one site listed and under first column "SiteID", it shows 2. Under Primary, it shows yes.

    And earlier, under Network>Add Site,
    In Site Address: I had gotten option to enter a subdomain. So I'd entered my subdomain, testsite.bizwebx.com

    And I just saw, Under: /wp-admin/my-sites.php, it only shows my main (root) site. So my added mapped domain site (domain.com), does'nt show up in this list.

    Does it give a clue ?
    Or something else is wrong here in my settings..?

    Thanks for your support.

    Best.

    [No bumping, thank you.]

  6. In Site Address: I had gotten option to enter a subdomain. So I'd entered my subdomain, testsite.bizwebx.com

    Did you put in the whole subdomain, or just 'testsite' (this matters a LOT).

    And I just saw, Under: /wp-admin/my-sites.php, it only shows my main (root) site. So my added mapped domain site (domain.com), does'nt show up in this list.

    It should show your subdomain OR the mapped site actually... Can you share a screenshot?

    Thanks Mika.

    I entered only sub-domain (testsite)as rest of it is already present outside the entryfield as .bizwebx.com

    Screenshots - posted both screenshots one which shows table of domain mapping status, and other of all network sites. (http://bizwebx.com/test-page)

    Also, in mapping screenshot, it is showing under column mapping the same domain that needs to mapped. Should it be like this ?

    Besides, Is there anything else that needs to be checked ?
    I hope it gets sorted out..

    pl take a look.

    Thanks

  8. Removed Kevin2012's post (please make your owwwwn topic ;) )

    I cannot read those screenshots, they're too small, man.

    Hi Mika,
    I seem to have got this sorted out. I was creating mapping thru super admin.....my mistake.
    Thanks so much for your time and support.:)
