I'm trying to set up a multisite network that uses subdomains and domain mapping.
I successfully created the network (.htaccess and wp_config files were altered as needed). My provider does not allow for wildcard DNS so I manually created each subdomain I needed with my provider (Dreamhost). I added the sites in the network dashboard without any error messages.
But two things seem to be going wrong. Firstly, the sites that I created don't appear in the "My Sites" drop down menu at the top. If I click through to the sites page, the sites I created appear, but if I try to access their dashboard, I get a 404 message:
The requested URL /wp-admin/ was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
It navigated to the right subdomain URL as far as I can tell, but that wp-admin folder doesn't exist there. It's as if the site creation didn't complete properly.
I haven't actually finished the domain mapping part yet, but surely the subdomain URLs should work and I should be able to access the dashboards before finishing that, right?
Thanks for any help you can provide.
