Please help, I’m getting gray hairs over here.
I’m trying to install a fresh install of WordPress multiuser. I’ve done the following:
1. Installed wordpress (plus databases etc). It’s located on public_html/multiuser (as an example).
2. Added the multiuser-true-part in the config.php.
3. Added a wildcard subdomain via cpanel. It says *.multiuser.com and points to public_html/multiuser, the same path as where the config.php is located. When I check dns records in cpanel there is a wildcard dns setup there, which points to my webhosts server.
BUT! When I login into the wordpress installation, and click network settings, choose subdomains and then clicking install, that’s where it all goes bad. I get the an error message saying that my joker-dns probably wasn’t setup right since wordpress tried to create a test-subdomain and got a “could not resolve”-error.
This error only comes once, if I click on network configuration again I get another warning saying that wordpress already found an existing network.
I tried going through with everything, including adding the stuff into .htaccess and config.php, but when I try to add a new site via the register-button, the install says everything was finished, and I get a welcome-email, but nothing was created and I get a “page not found” when trying to access the recently created site (for example testblog.multiuser.com).
PLEASE help, I don’t know what I’m missing. I’ve read the codexes on wordpress.org several times.
