Support » Networking WordPress » Domain-based Blog Network

  • Resolved trejder



    I have several domains binded to my server and all of them points to the same place — fresly new WordPress installation.

    I would like to create a network of blogs but fully operated on domains.

    I have installed WordPress, enabled network in configuration and now I’m about to install a network using Tools menu in Admin Panel. But all I see to choose is either subdomain or path type of network. No support for mutli domain.

    Is there anyway I can have a few domains like:,,, operated through one control panel (one WordPress installation), without revealing user of one blog (domain) that the same engine also hosts other blogs.

    Currently the last one fails. Even though I accessed blog from different domain, all links point to main domain, where WordPress was initially installed, before creating a network.

    This is not accessible as all my blogs run through the same engine should offer a complete separation. No links, no names, no nothing. If user access page with x.domain, it should never and nowhere see y.domain

    Is such thing possible? If yes — then how to get it.

    WordPress 3.0: Multisite Domain Mapping Tutorial

    Thank you so much! I thought, I can handle this myself, by reconfiguring add-ons domains in my cPanel configuration for my host. But it turned out to be in-effective. So, blog entry, you mentioned and plugin, it refers to seesm to be the only option. Thanks!

    Just one important notice for others.

    Otto’s guide is TWO AND A HALF YEAR OLD. It is now nearly completely out-dated. Plugin has evolved by that time and has been updated many times. That is, why you see some many differences between those screenshots and messages there and real plugin. For me, instructions at installation tab of plugin itself:

    was enough for me. I was able to setup all the things and get it all working.

    If, after clicking activate (either network-wide or site-alone one), you see a message about fatal error about redeclaration of some functions, then this 99,99% because I have read (and did) whole OUTDATED Otto’s blog and copied a file into mu-plugins directory. This is DEPRECATED, you don’t have to do this anymore. Keep yourself with installation guide on plugin page and forget about all this mu-plugins stuff!
