Hello all. I am so far unsuccessful in getting Networks for WordPress to function as it should. I have it installed and configured as per instructions up to step to of the FAQ...
Configure your web server to direct requests for each desired domain to the same site (e.g. via ServerAlias directives or Host Headers
I have no idea how to do this or where to even begin. Actually I think I might have an idea that you need to modify the httpd.conf file but I'm told by my hosts (I've tried both HostGator and Network Solutions) that my package doesn't allow access to that file and that I need VPS or dedicated server which is more money than I was wanting to pay.
I have pointed my domains at my hosting IP and when I test the settings in the initial network set up all of the tests are passed. When I go to the domain I get a 404 error.
I know I'm missing something but I don't know what it is.
Extra information, I have been able to successfully create a network of sites at the root domain after setting up wildcard DNS. (root, site.com and subdomain sites, testsite1.site.com, testsite2.site.com).
Should Networks for WordPress work in the same way as this, as in when I create a new network is it as simple as clicking a few buttons on the WordPress dashboard?
