    So your main site is: http://waynefusco.com/w3/? That means you have installed a multisite network in a subdirectory. Right?

    But your classof79.waynefusco.com looks clearly like a subdomain site — not a subdirectory site.

    Is your multisite set up as a subdomain or a subdirectory type?

    I thought I set it up as a subdomain which is what I wanted to do.

    I read that you should not setup WordPress multisite in a root folder so I installed it in the /w3 folder.

    This is the multisite config
    /* Multisite */
    define( ‘WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE’, true );
    define(‘MULTISITE’, true);
    define(‘SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL’, true);
    define(‘DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘waynefusco.com’);
    define(‘PATH_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘/w3/’);
    define(‘SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE’, 1);
    define(‘BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE’, 1);

    Actually, for subdomain, you DO want to set it up in the root of the domain. Trying to do this from a subdirectory might be your problem.

    Do you have subdomain wildcards set up on this domain — and are you sure your host supports subdomain wildcards? And, you are letting the network set up the subdomains — you haven’t manually created classof79.waynefusco.com?

    Thanks for the help,

    Yes I have wildcards setup
    I am guessing it does – I am own cPanel and it, cPenel says it is (see screenshot)

    I am sorry, not sure what you mean by am I letting the network setup the subdomains. I set them up under sites –

    Sometimes people try to add the subdomains manually in cPanel. It sounds like you are just setting them up in the network admin — that’s the only place you should need to set them up.

    So because this is brand new, should I delete the network install and reinstall in the root folder? It no big deal if I need to. There is only sub on it anyway.

    I want to start off on the right foot..

    I think that will be easier than trying to make all the needed path changes in the db… especially since it’s a new install.

    So I reinstalled

    Did the network setup.
    Got a error that wildcard dns was not enabled for my domain – cPanel told me how to fix it.

    When I go to the dashboard of a site i added and get a 404 error. I can provide any info you need to help..

    Thank you

    What is the url for your mainsite & the subsite that gives the 404?

    Where is this hosted?

    GOT It… It was the cPanel setup there was no directory associated with the wildcard domain.

    Thank you for all the pointers so far…

    How do I change the site url?
    its set to http://waynefusco.com and it should be https://www.waynefusco.com..

    I think that you might want to just keep the non-www and add a snippet of code to your .htaccess to redirect www to non-www.

    This ought to work:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.waynefusco\.com
    RewriteRule (.*) http://waynefusco.com/$1 [R=301,L]

    Or you could create a CNAME record in the domain zone file.

    It will be way easier to to one of those than change the site URL….
