  • Is your wordpress install in the root or in a folder?

    I want to spit in frustration, but mom always told me that’s rude. So I’m just going to ask for help. I’ve researched for three days trying to find the solution to the most basic of domain mapping scenarios.

    Nothing I do works. I swear I’m not stupid. is my multisite (Hosted @ GoDaddy) is a second domain I bought to forward to

    As per the instructions, I changed the @ record on to forward to the ip address listed in the @ record of I’m using the Domain Mapping plugin as per the tutorial by Otto.

    I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. Please help!

    I hate to always blame GoDaddy, but they don’t have cpanel so half the instructions are irrelevant.

    And I can;t remember where in the GD panel you tell your second domain to go to the folder of your wordpress install.

    It appears that my second domain is pointing to, but i’m getting a blank page… What does that mean?

    Hey there

    i got domain mapping working today with my host — in the UK

    sounds like you have the same situation.

    I guess you have a shared server … you brought your new domain and pointed it to the correct IP or CNAME

    what you need to do is either pay for a static IP OR go to your CPANEL and add an ADDON domain

    normally an addon domain gets its own directory like home/addon_domain

    but what you want to do is edit this BEFORE saving your addon domain so the addon domain has its ROOT folder as


    i dont use GD – but im going to write up my own experience with CPANEL tomorrow if that helps


    @damina – that;s not the answer at all. I appreciate you;re trying to help, but please try and make sure the answer is *correct*.

    Blank page = errors. Every. single. time.

    Did you remove the twentyten theme? are all your plugins disabled?

    Also, I found the post I was looking for. It should help.

    My WordPress 3.0+ multi-site domain mapping with GoDaddy

    Thanks for the advice everyone.

    @andrea, do you prefer the paid plugin?
    Also, should I have deleted the TwentyTen theme? I’ll try disabling the plugins a bit later tonight.

    Also, should I have deleted the TwentyTen theme?

    Oh, HECK NO. ๐Ÿ˜€ Some people have been, thinking if there’s only one theme there, the new blog will default to use it. that;s not how it works.

    @andrea, do you prefer the paid plugin?

    Well, it’s mine & ron’s so I’m biased. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    If you want admins to map the blogs themselves, use the free one.
