Support » Networking WordPress » Domain Mapping is not working

  • I create a multiuser website. I installed the WPMU.

    I map my existing domain from goDaddy using A(host. I enter the IP Address of my WPMU website hosted by Bluehost. and I enter the domain name in the admin add domain name.

    But when I check the page using the domain name, the page is not displaying.

    My wordpress version is 3.0.3

    @priya you just linked to instruction over at wordpress.COM. those instructions have nothing to do with setting up domain mapping on your *own* host. those are only if your blog is hosted by wp.com.

    Hi Friends

    I am confused about domain mapping; here is the situation: I am trying to finish the initial preparation of my blog: http://www.successfulbychoice.com
    but would like to have VIDEOPRESS. My domain is hosted by HOSTGATOR and I want to leave it like that. How do I do domain mapping without loosing my present hosting? and would my URL be different and no longer: http://www.successfulbychoice.com ?

    All I want is to be able to up load video, audio etc. to post aread not just to side bar…

    Thank you

    Charleston – You should really make your OWN post.

    VideoPress is a plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/video/

    Unless you want to make a second domain, you don’t need anything to do with domain mapping, or subsites, and just read the directions on that plugin.

    Hi Ipstenu
    Thank you so much for a really quick answer. It was really fast; I could not answer because I had to run for an appointment and a little trip, but thank you.

    1. About making my OWN post: YES, I am writing my own post. Every article there is mine; I do not outsource my blog articles. Of course it is new and I am writing several articles to place there; I need a lot of them, but it is ok. I will get place them there soon. THANK YOU for reminding.

    2. DOMAIN MAPPING. You are right, I do not need it he he he. I ready a few articles and learned a lot. Thank you very much for the help. GOOD JOB. Take and have a great day.

    SHe means make your own post abut your problem here in the forums.

    Hi Andrea_r

    Oh! I am sorry! I realize now that I wrote into someone else’s post. So sorry… I am new into this, will be careful next time. Please forgive my intrusion. HAVE A GREAT DAY friends and thank you for helping people here in the forum.

    I did everything at the http://gmichaelguy.com/blog/2010/11/28/my-wordpress-3-0-multi-site-domain-mapping-with-godaddy/ site.

    Still no joy. Whats going on here?

    I have mymergemedia.com
    I am trying to make, http://mymergemedia.com/imergeandsee
    go to imergeandsee.com

    I did all the steps, have gone through dozens of forum posts and no joy with anything.

    I set up the sunrise in the wp-config.php (see below).
    I copied the plug in file ‘domain_mapping’ to the mu-plugins folder.
    I set up the DNS in the imergeandsee.com, as instructed the A Record goes to the I.P. Address 173.201.208.1 the CNAME ‘WWW’ goes to mymergemedia.com

    It was a similar process for using the Google Blogger which I had working for the last 5 years, ‘A’ name in the Domain goes to I.P. Address, and the WWW points to the domain (for google it was ghs.google.com, the blogger address ‘imergeandsee.blogspot.com’) I assume the WordPress Domain plugin does this same thing on my “mymergemedia.com” domain.

    So is something wrong with the plugin then? If so how do I fix it?
    I have been trying to fix this for the past week, my imergeandsee.com has been down

    *
     * Change this to true to enable the display of notices during development.
     * It is strongly recommended that plugin and theme developers use WP_DEBUG
     * in their development environments.
     */
    define('WP_DEBUG', false);
    define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);
    define( 'MULTISITE', true );
    define( 'SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', false );
    $base = '/';
    define( 'DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', 'mymergemedia.com' );
    define( 'PATH_CURRENT_SITE', '/' );
    define( 'SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1 );
    define( 'BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1 );
    define( 'SUNRISE', 'on' );
    /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */
    /** Absolute path to the WordPress directory. */
    if ( !defined('ABSPATH') )
    	define('ABSPATH', dirname(__FILE__) . '/');
    /** Sets up WordPress vars and included files. */
    require_once(ABSPATH . 'wp-settings.php');

    The only other thing I can think is that I have sub domains entertainment.imergeandsee.com, lifestyle.imergeandsee.com are two of them. Right now the home page is dead and I am losing my traffic. I need a fix ASAP. I had a similar problem for 3 weeks with the multi site network I’m thinking, I’ll have to dump the word press effort and go back to blogger. I’ll suffer for a few more days but thus far the extra stress and effort has not been worth it.

    imergeandsee – You should really read this whole thread before posting.

    Please make your OWN TOPIC.

    Guys I swear, I’ll send you COOKIES if you stop jumping in someone else’s thread 🙂 I’m closing this. It’s worthless to the OP who never came back.
