How to configure multisite so other sub-domains non-wordpress work? (2 posts)

    I am using wordpress for my main website, I plan to install a new theme for support.example.com and configure my main site to use multisite sub-domains. While testing I lost access to a sub-domain I have admin.example.com which is not wordpress. Is it because of the wild card I setup in my DNS record? If so can I simply not use a wild card and point an A record to support.example.com so multisite will work for only the network sites I create, and still allow me to create any other sub-domain virtual host as needed?

  2. You can have both named and wildcard subdomains on your site, IF your DNS and host are properly configured. You may need to force an A name if your site has problems.

    I use 'em both all the time.
