Support » Networking WordPress » Addings new sites and routing parked domains

  • Resolved wednesdei



    I’ve got the latest version of WP installed(3.0.2) with the domains mapping plugin setup. I’m attempting to get another domain added to my network. Heres what I am doing:

    1. Latest version of WP and MU domain mapping plugin installed with new sites as sub domains EG: have wildcard sub domain setup)
    2. Create new site which is setup at
    3. Everything works, I can navigate to that sub domain no problem, see wordpress going full steam
    4. Forward my domain name servers to my root domain name servers
    5. Setup the domain mapping plugin to associate site ID 2 with
    6. Attempt to visit and am redirected to not

    Am I misunderstanding how multisite and the domain mapping is supposed to work? How do I get it setup so that when I visit I am forwarded to the subdomain site, not the root.

    Thanks and regards,

  • Also, I parked the domain via cpanel with no redirect, do I need a redirect?

    Ok, so I am playing around and after disabling all my plugins and reinstalling the sunrise and domain mapping plugin I had some success. What is happening now is the following:

    I have a domain i want to add
    my main site is at
    I create the site, park the domain, map it via the plugin and set as primary.

    If I visit I can see the version of wordpress i’ve installed, but it is now at it is at is this how it is supposed to work? I don’t mind or anything, looks like it works fine just trying to understand what exactly i did…

    If I’m understanding correctly wordpress is using to pull the content from and via some trickery my browser is at but still connected to my network?

    Go to the admin area of to the tools -> Domain Mapping menu.

    Set as the *primary* domain for that site. otherwise, it won;t change the address.

    Hello Andrea_r,

    so right now i have the domain mapping plugin going to site ID 2 with as primary.

    When I visit it changes it to

    If I set site ID 2 to map to it sends me to the main site of my install, not to the site that I created.

    Is this normal?

    Set your server to answer to the www version of the domain, and also – pick one to be the primary.

    yes, and are considered two different domains.

    (not just by wordpress, by everything but humans…)

    So you have to map the www version as well.

    Hey there Andrea_r,

    You were right, adding that second map was the key. Currently, everything is working amazing just like it should. Thanks alot for all of your help.
