    Domain mapping is for mapping domains vs mapping domains & paths. Due to the way DNS works you cannot direct paths to a site.

    For what you are trying to do you need to use something like squid or varnish to front end the path and use a WP install to be the back end.

    Hi Ron,

    Thanks for your quick response.

    I think I will look into setting up Varnish, or nginx, as I’m using Bitnami and it looks relatively easy to setup.

    Do you have much experience with these tools? It seems for nginx I can use the map module.

    Thanks again Ron.

    I’m in process of migrating to my third nginx server. The previous two had 2 – 2 1/2 years each.

    If you work through the process of setting up, then you could direct a specific folder to a different upstream provider.


    Thanks again for the quick response. Yep, I’ve looked at that link already and it will probably be my next port of call.

    I’m a bit confused though. If I go to the URL, this is routed to my MU server.

    Couldn’t I just check to see if $_SERVER[ ‘HTTP_HOST’ ] is somedomain, and if so route that to ?

    Really appreciate you time,
