WordPress MU Domain Mapping
[resolved] Working with a local dev mirror (2 posts)

    On my development server, domain mapping brings up the live site on the front end. The admin area still works fine. I have the settings to "user entered url" and even then when typing the local address it redirects to the live site.
    Any ideas for a workaround?

    Thanks

    Its a bit crude, but I came up with a workaround for this.
    Keeping all settings active for the plugin I added a Transmit (ftp) rule excluding the 'domain-mapping' and 'sunrise.php' folder/files from the mirror sync and then deleted those files from the mirror folder structure. Now all the DB tables will remain the same (keeping the plugin turned on) but the dev environment will just automagically turn off the plugin due to missing files.

    Not the best, but its easy enough and gets the job done.
