So I've read through just about everything I can trying to find someone else who has had my same problem and I'm really, really, painfully new at all this, so please bear with me!
My problem: I can access my main site example.com. I have set up the WP MS, and went with subdomains instead of subfolders. I was not trying to covert a previously established blog or site, so the wp install is completely fresh. When I try and access EITHER the subdomain site eg: site2.example.com OR the admin panel for it, I simply get directed to example.com.
I've already checked with the DNS provider and ensured that wildcards are enabled for the domain name. What other things should I be checking, as well?
