[Resolved] domains are linked to main blog not specified blogs

  • pirate988


    Hey guys,
    I have a problem and i was looking in the old threads but couldn’t find an answer
    I was trying the wordpress multisites (3.4.2) and i read that it can’t be installed in it’s own folder
    and since i can’t put it on the root of my host because i have another website i installed it on a subdomain blogs.domain.com
    and i created the blog1 and blog2 as subdirectory so there links are
    blogs.domain.com/blog1 and blogs.domain.com/blog2
    then i bought the domains blog1.com and blog2.com and parked them in my cpanel
    then i installed the domain mapping plug in and did all the configuration and linked the blog1.com and blog2.com to their sites based on the site’s id (2,3)
    the problem is when i navigate to blog1.com i get my original website at domain.com
    so i thought since blog1.com and blog2.com are parked domain and wordpress on different subdomain so the plug in won’t be able to forward these 2 domains to my 2 blogs
    so i tried in the cpanel parked domains to forward blog1.com and blog2,com to blogs.domain.com where i have my wp network installed and i though that in this way the plug in will be able to link the 2 domains to the 2 blogs but that didn’t happen
    now when i navigate to blog1.com or blog2.com i get the blogs.domain.com which is obvious in general but my guessing didn’t work
    I tried to edit the DNS zone to make the parked domains points to blogs.domain.com instead of the ip as CNAM but i found that it’s not allowed
    Ain’t there any way to do that ?
    and does this plug in work with subdirectory mode ? or i need to change to subdomains mode ?
    Any help is highly appreciated
    Thank you

    Domain mapping only works when WP is installed in the root.



    Thank you

    What if you have more than one domain on your server?

    My server install goes like this:

    maindomain.org -> public_html

    addondomain1.org -> public_html/addondomain1

    On addondomain1.org I’ve a WP multisite install (subdomains), which is working fine for subdomains.

    Now I’ve some parked domains I want to map to subdomains of this multisite install on addondomain1.org. Is it possible?

    I’ve managed to install the plugin and configured the subdomain wildcard and such. But I can’t get the mapping to work. When I try to see my parkeddomain1.org, all I get is the default cPanel placeholder page.

    I haven’t seen any instances where domain mapping can be used in add on domains except wher it was a dedicated server and the site owner could edit the web server config manually.
