Thank you for your time.
The Multisite networkname.com works and the Site blogname has been created.
I want to change
I’m using Subfolder Structure, no Subdomains, do I need to set up a Wildcard?
I have taken these steps already:
Settings at Domain Name Registrar
The Domains are using the hosts DNS:
Domain Mapping Configuration
The IP in the field Server IP Address: is the same as the Multisite/Network
WordPress (Plugin) New Domain Dialog
Added the corresponding name and ID# of the Blog, Primary Checkbox checked.
When trying testing the URL
http//:blogname.com in a browser, the page doesn’t load (as when entering a nonexistent domain).
I contacted the host and was told I had to additionally add the domain blogname.com in their cPanel as an Addon Domain which created a new folder for the Addon Domain.
This seems illogical to me, is it true that I have to do this? I chose no Redirect when adding the domain in cPanel.
Now when testing blogname.com I get a
Index of /cgi-bin/
most likely to the newly created folder.
What am I missing?
Thank you so much!
I read through the instructions on how to use the Plugin “WordPress MU Domain Mapping” for a Multisite including the somewhat outdated Ottopress post and the WP Multisite 101 ebook. I’m stuck between asking my host and asking in the WP forums and can’t get it to work.
