WP3 - MultiSite - Multi Domains? (11 posts)

    Hi all,

    I've WP3 with Multi-site:

    1. Entry point(Portal) http://www.domainA.com/
    2. SiteA: http://www.domainA.com/siteA,
    3. SiteB: http://www.domainA/siteB.

    Is it possible to point http://www.domainB.com to /siteB?

    Or is it possible to mirror two domains to the whole installation, so both http://www.domainA.com/siteB and http://www.domainB.com/siteB would work??

    Currently I'm forwarding domainB.com to domainA.com, and it lost all its index pages in google.

    hope I can find an answer here. Thanks for the help!!

    thanks Andrea, I tried everything I can, the domain mapping works without URL written. i.e. d domainB.com works on a siteB homepag, as well as domainB.com/?p=123

    But once I turn on the permalink, it will show a 404.

    Is there any way I can set both domainA.com and domainB.com pointing to the one installation? so both domainA.com/siteB & domainB.com/siteB will work?

    @fayenet, are you trying to point two domains to the same site or are you trying to map two different domains to two different blogs?

    AFAIK you can only domain map your blogs if you are using subdomains for the sites instead of directories.

    However, it should be possible using mod-rewrite and a .htaccess file to rewrite http://www.domainB.com to http://www.domainA.com/siteB.

    Doing it that way http://www.domainA.com/siteB will remain and continue to work.

    A small side effect of using mod-rewrite is that this really only applies to the initial entry to the site because after that they would have to use the http://www.domainA.com/siteB format as that is the actual site url.

    @snaxmuppet, there are plugins that allow you to map domains to subdirectory installs, but I don't think this plugin will allow you to map domains to subdirectory installs.

    Sorry josh... which plugin are you talking about? I was talking about using mod-rewrite of apache... not a plugin. I am confused!

    The plugin that was suggested above.

    Ah right... the MU Domain Mapping Plugin.

    Thx

  10. Sorry guys - the domain mapping plugin DOES work with subfolder installs. It used to not.

    Also, it doesn't work if the install is in a folder and has it as part of the address.

    But that is not the OP's problem.

    mod_rewrite needs to be enabled and working on the server, and reading the htaccess file. I went over this in the forum sticky.
