[resolved] MU 3.3.1 Sub-directory - Dashboard 'Visit site' goes to Index of / (4 posts)

    Hi guys,

    Need some help. The feature was working, but after parking domains the feature stopped and a don't understand why.

    Background: I'm using WordPressMU 3.3.1 and have sub-directories for my sites. I've parked domains on my domain name containing wordpress(noro.com.au) and used domain mapping in WordPress so that http://www.aardvark.net.au points to site id2 which is noro.com.au/aardvark. All this works as expected.

    Problem: Not long after parking the domains (within 2 days), the link in my wordpress dashboard My sites > Aardvark Internet > Visit site now takes me to an index page showing:

    Index of /aardvark
    Parent Directory

    The link always used to work and take me to the real home page. Can someone please help fix this annoying problem?

    I read through a few posts and tried adding DirectoryIndex ... to my .htaccess file but that made no difference.


  2. Is there a folder called /aardvark on your server?

    Perchance did the domain parking install that? You may want to ask your webhost how to point a domain at the root of your site, instead of it's own folder.

    Ahh, thank you muchly, problem fixed.

    There was a folder called aardvark. Not sure how or why it was created but I renamed the folder and voila, noro.com.au/aardvark works as intended. It is possible my business partner was playing around with domain redirects and he may have tried creating a domain redirect to noro.com.au/aardvark and that may have created the folder.

    FYI, the domains are parked on the root using the cPanel 'park domain' feature.

  4. Yeah, that'd do it :) Watch out with domain redirects.
