Support » Networking WordPress » Multisite Domain Mapping problem

  • Hi everyone,

    I’ve installed a fresh WP installation with multisite in DirectAdmin.
    Installed the WordPress MU Domain Mapping plugin.

    The admin pages on the subdomains are working correctly, see the sites and mapping:

    All the domains are on the same hosting and have the same DNS IP Adres.
    When i activate the mapping and use the ‘view site’ in wordpress it goes to the right place: (
    goes to
    [ redundant link removed ]

    But it won’t let me see the wordpress page, it just let me see the placeholder.

    How can i fix this? Sorry for my bad english ^^

  • That error you’re seeing isn’t from WordPress but comes from your server itself which makes me think you have the domain names pointing to something other than the webroot where your WordPress resides.

    BTW, you probably don’t need the domain mapping plugin anymore as that is built into WordPress after version 4.5 and may even make things more difficult.

    I don’t remember how to make domains, subdomains, and add on domains point to the proper webroot in Direct Admin but your host or else Direct Admin’s documentation should be able to help you.

    Once the domain is pointed properly you’ll get the requests for that domain being handed off to WordPress where the site mapping will then redirect to the proper subsite.

    I can’t find anywhere to enable it without using the plugin? Every how to tells to use the plugin.

    I know the 403 is because of the root of my domain is empty but i want to show the wordpress page there :p

    Without the plugin it’s easy. Set up the new site as a sub-domain for a start, and when it’s set up, edit it’s details and change the URL to the correct one that it should be. That’s really all there is to it. 🙂

    If the root of your domian is empty, that’s what you’ll see. What did you expect to see? If you have WordPress installed somewhere else on the server you’ll need to point the new domain to that folder and not it’s own seperate (empty) folder.
