[resolved] Sub Domain Issues (5 posts)

    Hi,

    I have installed wordpress multisite on my main domain http://www.thefalconwing.com. The main site is working fine.

    My issues have arose when trying to add additional sites via subdomains.

    I have added a new site using wordpress to create nba.falconwing.com. I configured the A record for the domain which now includes "nba" in its record and pointed it to my IP.

    When i try and go to the nba site i get message saying there is no website configured at this address? When according to wordpress there is.

    I can also not access the site dashboard for the nba site.

    Have i missed something? Bluehost indicated it was nothing on their end.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Have you setup your wilcard subdomain at Bluehost? Here is their helpdesk article on how to do that:

    I have done so a few hours ago and tried again from scratch on a different subdomain f1.thefalconwing.com.

    It has made some difference, Now i just get the bluehost standard landing page instead of the site?

    And now when i try and access the /wp-admin i get an internal server error?

    Just to make sure i have it right this is what my .htaccess looks like

    # Use PHP5 Single php.ini as default
    AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5s .php
    
    # BEGIN WordPress
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    
    # uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$1 [L]
    
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]
    
    # END WordPress

    and this is what i have put into the config.php

    /* Multisite */
    define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);
    
    define('MULTISITE', true);
    define('SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', true);
    $base = '/';
    define('DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', 'www.thefalconwing.com');
    define('PATH_CURRENT_SITE', '/');
    define('SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1);
    define('BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1);
    
    define( 'SUNRISE', 'on' );
    
    /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

    Appreciate the help.

    Unless it's specific to BlueHost's configuration, you may want to try removing the AddHandler line from your .htaccess file. In most cases, unless they force PHP 4 by default, it's not needed.

    Try using:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    
    # uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$1 [L]
    
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]
    
    # END WordPress

    Your .htaccess looks fine otherwise, though I have seen that line be the cause of errors in the past with various configurations where it's simply not needed.

    It seems to be working now. My issue was when installed the wildcard onto the DNS i did not delete the "wilcard" folder so it can installed on that instead of the root folder.

    Thanks for your help.
