Subdomain subsites don't work, addon domain subsites do (5 posts)

    I'm having a problem creating new subdomain subsites.

    I create the site through Network Admin, it appears in the site list, the email goes out and the DB tables are created. However, when I try to access subdomain.domain1.com or /wp-admin/ I get an error saying "Could not find subdomain.domain1.com".

    I currently have 3 add-on domain subsites running without problems.

    So I'm not sure if it's a problem creating new subsites in general, or something specific to subdomain subsites. They worked in the past, so it shouldn't be the DNS wildcard, htaccess looks fine and I've confirmed with my host that AllowOverrides is enabled.

    Any ideas?

  2. They worked in the past, so it shouldn't be the DNS wildcard

    Wildcard subdomains worked in the past? For that add-on?

    Wildcard subdomains worked in the past, ie *.domain1.com. = ip.address

    I used to have test.domain1.com and one day it stopped working, I couldn't access it or /wp-admin/

    I've tried with and without plugins activated, no luck.

    Update: I just successfully created another addon/parked domain subsite... meaning the problem with subdomain subsites has to be with the subdomain wildcard, right??

  5. I would consider that the most likely suspect, yes.
