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
