Create a site before the dns entry record created issue (2 posts)

    WordPress 3.3.1 installed in local computer (windows 7) for familiarisation purposes.

    I acidentally add new site before the dns record for the site has been created. Realising this, I then create the dns record.
    Next, I go to the new site: angrybird.myblog.com. Page not found error is displayed. But I am able to go to angrybird.myblog.com/2012/01/05/hello-world/ and also the dashboard angrybird.myblog.com/wp-admin/

    I can create any other side with no problem, test.myblog.com, demo.myblog.com, all show the expected page. The difference between these working site and the error site angrybird.myblog.com is I created the angrybird site before DNS record.

    I tried to delete angrybird site and recreate it. I still could not make angribird.myblog.com to show the correct page like the rest of the sites.

    1) Is the sequence order to create DNS record first before adding newsite in WordPress really matter?
    2) How do I correct this issue since recreating this problematic site (delete and add again) does not solve the problem. Seems like there are some unwanted traces left even after site deletion causing the issue to stay across recreation. If this is the correct behaviour then is there any manual way around it?

  2. If you leave it alone until DNS catches up, it'll work. Sequence should not matter, though that depends on your server and caching.

    You should be able to set up your DNS for wildcard subdomains to be kicked over to myblog.com, thus obviating the need to add 'em in manually every time.
