[Resolved] 3.0 Multisite Domain Headaches – Mapping DNS to subdomain?
Ok, so I’m sure this is a straightforward problem with a simple solution.
I need to map http://www.domain.com to subdomain.anotherdomain.com, and domain-two.com to subdomaintwo.domain.com on my “Network” install. As in, I have multisites enabled…I realize that the lingo has changed from MU to 3.0.
I installed 3.0 because my next project is a series of WordPress-powered sites…around 6. While setting it up under 2.9.2, I realized how much time I was wasting setting up so any separate installs of wordpress when all of the sites are on the same server.
So I set up 3.0, enabled multisites, and spawned 4 sites.
I have a VPS, DNS Wildcards, and subdomains set up for the network.
So, I want to do the above: map http://www.domain.com to subdomain.anotherdomain.com, and domain-two.com to subdomaintwo.anotherdomain.com.
Seems like something that should be built-in with all the multisites options, but perhaps I’m missing something. Although, I guess the power of WordPress is the power of the plugin. 🙂
After searching a bit, I took a look at WordPress MU Domain Mapping, but I still can’t figure this out. I tried talking to my webhost about this, but they said they didn’t really have any clue and that I should ask for help here.
My main domain has an IP address for an A name, and the domain itself as a CNAME. So, do I set up Domain Mapping with a server CNAME address or IP address? On my second domain, which I want to map to the subdomain, do I set up the CNAME or A name to point to…what exactly?
So confusing. 🙁
I realize that I’m asking for help with the plugin and the general problem, but I was hoping to not have to resort to a plugin for a solution. It seems like an issue that I wouldn’t be alone in.
