    Follow instructions as given:

    • Install plugin
    • Network Activate plugin
    • Create sites as subdomain or subdirectory

    Now map domains to sites as follows:

    • IMPORTANT NOTE: You can not map domains to the main site!
    • For each subsite, map by ID as Super Admin under Settings -> Domain Mapping
    • For each subsite, go to Edit -> Settings and change Siteurl to the mapped domain. Do not change Domain, Path, or Subdomain under Info!
    • Enjoy your mapped domains.

    For each subsite, go to Edit -> Settings and change Siteurl to the mapped domain.

    The point of the DM plugin is to allow you to map a domain to the site without editing the site (specifically the URL options).

    Using 3.6 and sites in subdirectories, the mapping did not work until I changed the Siteurl.

    Is it possible something else about my host configuration is causing the problem? My host is asmallorange.com, and I have additional domains as addon domains using cPanel. I installed WordPress with multisite enabled using Softaculous.

    Yes.

    It would really help if we could get some more clarity with some examples for each of the configurations and settings with a more updated tutorial/ instructions.

    E.g. My WP MS Install:
    Main Site: d1.org
    Site 2: d-1.org
    Site 3: d-1.com
    Site 4: ax.com
    Site 5: ay.com

    How will each of the settings affect aspects of these sites and domains?

    I understand the instructions in an abstract way but some examples with variations would help understand those settings better.

    doublerebel - I am also using asmallorange ASO and I was wondering if you were able to move forward and resolve your situation. If so, how have you done things.
