Support » Fixing WordPress » Multisite – Configuration – No front end site access to sub-domain

  • Resolved dasped



    Been using WP for a while now but this is my first Multi-site configuration and man, am I having a day of it thus far.

    Right, first up and explanation of my first issue (Now Resolved’ish) but it may help others.

    WP 3.4.2 – SubDomain Multisite config – CPanel

    I have access to my reseller WHM but not server files;

    I set up the DNS wildcard via WHM ‘edit dns zone’ simply adding * & server ip etc = No go!

    After more trouble shooting than I care to mention what I should have done is create the wildcard via the direct CPanel for the account.

    Why? Don’t ask, the only thing I can see is, that by doing it this way, it also adds a * TXT file to the DNS

    * 1440 IN TXT "v=spf1 +a +mx +ip4:<strong>SE.RV.ER.IP</strong> ?all" To be precise

    With this, I was magically straight into my sub-domain dashboard, no issues!

    Now onto my real reason for the post.

    I still can’t view the front of the site? All dashboard facilities are available at but takes me straight to

    htaccess reads:

    # -FrontPage-
    IndexIgnore .htaccess */.??* *~ *# */HEADER* */README* */_vti*
    <Limit GET POST>
    order deny,allow

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    Config reads:

    /* Multisite */
    define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);
    define('MULTISITE', true);
    define('SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', true);
    $base = '/';
    define('DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', '');
    define('PATH_CURRENT_SITE', '/');
    define('SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1);
    define('BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1);
    /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

    My head is a complete spin with all the posts I’ve read and I thought I’d nailed it with the dashboard access winning moment, however short-lived.

    Please help if you can.
