[resolved] Multisite on MediaTemple GS account? (4 posts)

    The only documentation I can find is incomplete at:
    http://wiki.mediatemple.net/w/(gs):Install_Wordpress_with_multisite

    When loading a subdomain in my browser though, it's loading files from a separate html directory than the primary domain which I have setup as multisite network.

    On a MediaTemple (GS) Grid-Service account, how do I get the sub domains to load files from the multisite?

  2. How did you set up your subdomains?

    You should be able to point them to the html direction where you installed WP.

    To do that on Dreamhost I would set the subdomain to 'mirror' the multisite domain using a pulldown in their admin interface.

    On Media Temple though, I figured out I have to manually create a sym link.

    I ssh into the account, deleted the folder MT automatically created, then ran a command to create the sym link like this:
    > ln -s domain.com subdomain.domain.com

    It's all working now.

  4. Ahh. Yeah, that's actually the correct, approved, way to do it :)

    Works the same for mapped domains.
