    Hi.

    i'm setup Multisite in hostgator follow the steps:

    - In Cpanel: create subdomain: *.mydomain.com
    - Add code in wp-config.php: define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);
    - In Wp-admin : Display all plugin
    - Go to Tools ยป Network Install is error:
    Warning! Wildcard DNS may not be configured correctly! The installer attempted to contact a random hostname (559093.www.mydomain.com) on your domain. This resulted in an error message: Couldn't resolve host '559093.www.mydomain.com' To use a subdomain configuration, you must have a wildcard entry in your DNS. This usually means adding a * hostname record pointing at your web server in your DNS configuration tool. You can still use your site but any subdomain you create may not be accessible. If you know your DNS is correct, ignore this message.

    Next: i'm add 2 code to wp-config.php and .htaccess

    Now i'm create sub domain site.mydomain.com but not running.

    How to fix it's.

    Thanks so much!

  2. What's not running? What do you see when you go to site.mydomain.com?

    The warning you quoted said this: You can still use your site but any subdomain you create may not be accessible.

    So if that's the problem, you have to either make a wildcard DNS entry on your server, or manually make a subdomain.

    Have you created this site in the WordPress network? In the Network Admin dashboard go to Sites --> Add New.

    Hi Patrick,

    I've created site : site1.vietan.tk in Network Admin but is not running to WordPress site. site1.vietan.tk/wp-admin is page 404 :(

    how to check my error.

    Thanks.

  6. Bump deleted. Please be more patient. You're getting help from volunteers, here. If it's a crisis, you should hire someone.

    Remember how I asked this?

    What do you see when you go to site.mydomain.com?

    I didn't ask about the wp-admin for a reason. site1.vietan.tk goes to a HostGator page - NOT a WordPress page. You need to set up the subdomains properly on your cPanel.
