Sub sites won't work in Subdomain network (4 posts)

    Hello!
    I have just installed a new subdomain based network (on an add-on domain if that matters) and everything seemed to work fine, but when I try to create a new sub site it just doesn't work (the dasboard, nor the site itself). It just says that it cannot be found.

    I just want to mention that I already run a seperate network (with wp 3.5.1 in the same hosting on my root domain) with absolutely no issues!

    Of course, before posting I've made a research and I can tell you what did not eork for me:
    AllowOverride All on .htaccess (as suggested on the link below) just caused an Internal server error
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/wordpress-35-multisite-can-not-access-subsite-dashboards

    The solution found on this link http://wordpress.org/support/topic/fresh-install-subfolder-multisite-infinite-redirect-loop-sub-blog-login did not work eather, but is talking about a subfolder network, not subdomain like mine.

    Could anyone help??

    P.S. I am not a developer, just trying to find my way arround...!

  2. but when I try to create a new sub site it just doesn't work (the dasboard, nor the site itself). It just says that it cannot be found.

    What does the error look like? Is it styled like your primary WordPress site or is it a generic server error?

    Thank you for your response!!
    No, it does not look like wordpress, it says that chrome cannot find the address, like the site was never created..

  4. Then the problem is NOT WordPress. Yay! Well... not yay, but at least we can tell you where to go :)

    The problem is you don't have wildcard DNS. You have edit your DNS so that *.yourdomain.com is listed with the same IP as yourdomain.com

    You also have to make sure your nameservers know what that means.

    If you don't know how to set that, talk to the company where you registered your domain (it may be your webhost).
