    I set up an new wp site and multi user on subdomain using wild card dns. I made the changes to the files in order.
    I have multisite function and access to the main site admin but I get a server error when I try to login to multisites admin or to view sites.

  2. What server error? 500?

    What happens if you go to notarealsite.yourdomain.com?

    Its the same error as below, just like I am not connected to the internet

    Server not found
    Firefox can't find the server at notarealsite.yourdomain.com.
    Check the address for typing errors such as
    ww.example.com instead of
    http://www.example.com
    If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
    connection.
    If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
    that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

  4. You don't have wildcard DNS set up :)

    You have to tell your name server to accept anything.

  6. Wherever you set up DNS in the first place.

    Do you know where your nameservers are? Your host's cpanel should have access to edit that.

    I set it up in cpanel in the subdomain section.
    Still no good.
    However my name servers are set by my host and entered in
    domain control at godaddy.
    Is this the same?

  8. It's not in the subdomain section.

    Cpanel has a zone editor for DNS. If you don't have that, ask your webhost how to make a wildcard DNS setting/
