Can't map domain (6 posts)

    I've read through countless threads for days and am having no luck with mapping my domain. I simply want to redirect the url of my blog, which I can currently access at "http://localhost/" on my computer, to my registered domain from GoDaddy (animationordeath.com). This way, when anyone goes to animationordeath.com, it will show up as my WordPress blog instead.

    I installed WordPress through MAMP and I think I successfully set up multisite. However, in most threads I read through, it said after setting up your network and multisite, you should have a super admin panel after logging back in. I logged back in and my dashboard was definitely different because now I have a "Network Admin" option, but I do not see a super admin option. However, if I click "all users", the only user I have is titled "Lynn Campbell - Super Admin".

    While in the Network Admin, I have the options "Domain Mapping" and "Domains" under my settings panel. I set up the domain mapping with my IP address for animationordeath.com. But when I go to "Domains" and try to save a new domain, nothing happens. I also thought I might need to go to sites>add new, but this doesn't appear to do anything either.

    Please help me! I feel like simply directing my domain should be so much easier than this since it is a one-step process when using a wordpress.com free blog.

    Also, everything should be added correctly in my wp-config.php file. This is my wp-config.php file:

    I see it didn't let me put all the code there. Here is the important stuff at the end:

    define('WP_DEBUG', false);

    define( 'SUNRISE', 'on' );

    define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);

    define('MULTISITE', true);
    define('SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', false);
    define('DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', 'localhost');
    define('PATH_CURRENT_SITE', '/');
    define('SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1);
    define('BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1);

    /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

    Do I need to buy hosting from GoDaddy in order for this to work?

    yes you will need to buy hosting, but it doesn't have to be with any particular hosting company.. MAMP works as a local development server but it should not be used as live webserver for the Internet.

    See http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress for an outline of how to get your local installation cloned over to the server at the hosting company

    Thanks for the reply, but this link doesn't seem to go anywhere.
