I have a godaddy Linux Deluxe account, this allowed me to create
multi site under one account. I have a primary website, then created 2 new domains under this primary.
I called godaddy to ask them how to install wordpress on these two sub domains. They said “easy..” First lets backup your DB and word press files on the primary wp site. DONE!.. Now lets install WP into the two new domain sub folders.. DONE! Now lets just do a restore from the primary database into the 2 new sub databases. DONE! Now lets copy (via my ftp backup) the primary wp files in the new sub folders. DONE! Went to both new sub domain sites and BOOM! There they are prefect copies.. I said thank and hung up the phone with godaddy.
Now granted, when I set these new installs of wp, I created new database names and password like I was told.. (I kinda had a feeling this would cause issues) but I want to follow her (Godaddy) steps. I mean I wanted the same site but need to just make small changes to the new domains.. Some text, picture and logo edits. So I needed separate admin logins (That I made during install)
Well tried to login to the admin to the two new wp copy domains and WILL NOT Let me login to these admins.. I get errors, they try to redirect me to the primary login, etc…
So I called godaddy, the said “OH, you need to edit afew of the php pages on those two new installs and something in the database tables on the new ones.. But we cant help you have a nice day.. EEEKKKE
Can anyone help me here.. Im sure it has something to do with some changes to wp-config, admin folder and maybe the new database. So what I did was removed the installs and removed the folders.. now I’m back to start. I’m sure the first part was correct.. Install the WP app on the two new sub domains.. but that’s when I need help.. copying over the wp folders and fixing the links to admin and user/password
Thank you so much!!
