I'm fairly new to WordPress and am a bit stumped with migrating my Blogger blogs over to my WordPress Multisite. They have been existing as subdomains on my own domain for several years.
I've gone through the steps for migrating blogs to WP (on one blog and several test blogs). There are no issues with the "New Sites" created through WP. E.g.: http://test.musespeak.com/
However, when I create a site using one of my existing subdomains, that's when I hit snags. The subdomains were originally created in my Parallels Pro Control Panel 10.3.4.
I moved one blog back to blogspot to facilitate the move - http://themusicalmuse.blogspot.ca/ . I set up the New Site on Multisite, but now I get the 404 page not found error: blog.musespeak.com . I can't even see the dashboard. Until this is resolved, the other blogs are staying put.
My DNS settings point to my web host account. The CNAME for blog.musespeak.com is set to ghs.google.com 60 min - as per Blogger's redirection to your custom domain settings. Question 1 - does that need to change?
I followed the instructions regarding regarding the multisite login loop - just to be safe: http://halfelf.org/2012/multisite-login-loop/
Question 2: Is there anything else I'm missing? I have a feeling that I'm skirting closer to the answer but am missing a few steps. Unfortunately, my web host isn't sure how to help me with this. I asked them about wildcards and they assure me that mine are set up properly.
I suspect part of the problem is that my web host uses Parallels Pro Control Panel 10.3.4. PLESK is the closest thing I've found in the threads and I noticed a few "quirks".
Any help is greatly appreciated.
