[resolved] Can not access subdomains from new network install (2 posts)

    I am not able to access the sub domain sites from a fresh network install on an existing single WP site. The existing install is 3.5.1 that was undeveloped with no content.

    The network set up went very smooth with no issues and everything seems to function properly, but I keep getting an error when I try to go to the sub domain site or its dashboard.

    Error: Server not found at subdomain.mainsite.com

    I did not make any DNS changes while enabling mutisite and after seeing some info about setting up DNS wildcards I was wondering what that was about and if that could be the problem?

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

  2. You didn't set up wildcard subdomains correctly.

    Check at http://www.whatsmydns.net/

    if the subdomain and mainsite don't match, that's what's up :) You have to add the wildcards to both DNS and your server's vhost.
