I would like to setup the following scenario using Multisite, but have been unable to find a setup process on it.
WordPress setup at primary: domain.tld
Multisite activated to allow subdomains: sub.domain.tld
Visitors receive domain.tld with registration page when attempting to visit a non-existent site (standard setup).
Non-WordPress related subdomains utilized for outside services: support.domain.tld
This is to allow me to use third-party tools or dedicated sites which are not using WordPress.
I am using a dedicated IP and CPanel. I have tried various scenarios, but to no avail such as:
Created wildcard * in CPanel, pointing to main WordPress install. Created support. subdomain and pointed to appropriate folder (outside main WordPress install). Verified DNS zone was properly populated with support listed before * for A records. -- This sometimes redirected properly, but was very random for release prior to 3.5.
Can anyone point me in the right direction for this type of setup? I am looking to have a few subdomains setup for various services outside of WordPress, but cannot seem to get it working properly.
