hi, i may be being some kind of dunce here but i'm having a really hard time getting my head around how to set up domain mapping for my network...
"A" names and "C" names are pretty confusing as is the order in which you're supposed to do stuff. are you supposed to park a domain or addon a domain? seriously, i know a fair amount about web design and development and i'm quite happy poking about on servers but this plugin and all the tutorials out there that are supposed to walk you through it aren't really all that helpful.
is there anyone on here who can put together an absolute, step by step idiot's guide to configuring this bad boy?
my main confusion arises as to when i should point my domain to the new blog and what ip address i should use as the one defined as "A" name on my domain registrar is NOT the same as the one defined in my cpanel dashboard. confusion reigns.
sometimes i'll find a forum thread somewhere where someone's had the same issue and they've figured it and helpfully declared it solved without bothering to tell anyone how they did it!
any help on this would be greatly appreciated, i've got a couple of issues to resolve with this plugin and buddpress/s2member registration set up and then i can hopefully go live. :D
thanks in advance, jack.
