    we've had an existing install (root directory) up and running for a few years - and recently activated multisite - think we followed all of the directions (used Andrea's PDF) - can now see the admin in the backend but when setting up a new site (domain based) the site just redirects to our host's not found landing page
    - site is golfscene.ca and, for example, i have a new site biz.golfscene.ca set internally - i contacted the host and they say that everything that they handle works and that it is a wordpress install issue?

    HTACCESS

    # BEGIN WordPress
    
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    
    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteRule ^wp-admin$ wp-admin/ [R=301,L]
    
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule ^(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $1 [L]
    RewriteRule ^(.*\.php)$ $1 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]
    
    # END WordPress

    biz.golfscene.ca isn't pointing to the right place. BlueHost doesn't support wildcard subdomains last I checked, but you can tey this: http://www.designdelineations.com/2011/12/19/enabling-wildcard-subdomain-for-wordpress-multisite-on-bluehost/

    If that doesn't work, you can manually make the subdomain, but as those directions say: "For “Document Root”, type in the folder where your WordPress installation is located."

    worked after setting up sub-domain manually via cPanel - now to try and figure out this domain mapping stuff - thanks for the help and appropriate 'scolding' - much appreciated
