    After everything thats been done,

    Im still having problems creating sub sites in my network.

    Can somebody tell me how to do this the right way???

  2. I only found 2 posts from you on the issue. Here you say it was working.

    For us to help, you have to give us something more to go on other than, "it's broke! fix it!" ;)

    At the time:

    It was something I forgot to do.

    Until I tried it again then I gave up after that :(

  4. You don't have wildcard subdomains enabled properly on the server.

    Could you tell me how to do this the right way???

  6. Not without knowing the details of your server. That's a SERVER setting, not WordPress. It could be really easy (like make a subdomain in cpanel called * and point it to your /public_html/ folder) or REALLY complicated.

    Call your webhost and ask them.

    I give up once again!!!

  9. Could you tell me how to do this the right way???

    I did. I linked to the codex entry that has very explicit directions on exactly what needs to be done.

    There's only *one* "right way. Either Apache has it set up or it does not.

    And you need to describe fully what you're doing, as you are not giving us any details for us to help you.

    Now for *.vann-digital.com:

    Tried it with an A name

    Tried it with CNAME

    Tried creating the subdomain myself

    Nothing works.

    Trying creating the subdomain myself again now...

    hello, i have the same problem, but where did you find this document ?
    "virtualhost" exactly ? thank you

  14. Now for *.vann-digital.com:
    Tried it with an A name
    Tried it with CNAME
    Tried creating the subdomain myself
    Nothing works.

    It's an A record. Where are you creating it? At the registrar? At your host?

    It definitely has to be there and it may not work immediately. I always put the TTL down as low as I can.

    Then WAIT.

    @blowbackk what host are you on? the doc referenced above is in Apache, on the server itself.

    @blowbackk

    That was my own I put up there.

    @Andrea_r

    Im creating the A record at the host and what TTL you suggest???

    I use the average 14400.

  16. 600.

    Set it and wait.

    Just tried it and now waiting...Whens a good time to try creating sub sites again after this???

  18. Do an nslookup on a random subdomain of your domain. when you get a response, then set up a sub site.

    Just tried it again a few days ago...Still waiting on it to work like it supposed to...

  20. Did you do an nslookup, like Andrea asked?

  21. when i put in test.yourdomain.com, your main site just refreshes. This suggests to me something is not right, because what *should* happen is non existant blogs will be redirected to the signup page. unless you manually disabled that.

    So start looking for some wacky redirects, because I don't see anything above that would cause that action to happen.

    @Ipstenu

    DNS server handling your query: localhost
    DNS server's address: 127.0.0.1#53

    Non-authoritative answer:
    Name: vann-digital.com
    Address: 206.214.221.161

  25. Vann you said

    @Andrea_r

    Just figured out what the problem is since you done said all that.

    So I thought you meant that you HAD figured out what the problem was. Is this not so?
