Missing tools, mapping menu (3 posts)

    Just did a new multisite install v. 3.2.1 and when I go to one of my subdomains from the network/all sites/dashboard, I do not have the domain mapping option under tools. I only see import and export. Everything seems to be working ok so far in the network admin. How do I get this menu to map each subdomain?

    OK, making some progress here. I added a brand new subdomain, in which I can now see the tools, domain mapping menu option. The other 5 subdomains I have were single wordpress installs that I moved into multisite. I have not deleted those single installs, as Hostgator noted I should leave them alone unless there is a space issue later. I believe these 5 subdomains are mapped correctly, as I have can see the correct mapping in the network/all sites screen. I guess all is working ok. My only concern is the 5 installs, what will happen if I delete those single installs.

  3. You can't map the primary domain, just the subdomains.

    Uh. Yes, you SHOULD get rid of them. If the PSYCHICAL subdomains still exist then your webserver will use those instead of the same-named virtual ones. Either remove them (backing them up first obviously) or rename them. Also, if you had manually mapped those subdomains, you need to remove that mapping.
