[resolved] Multisite install on secondary domain loading primary domain... (5 posts)

    I have two separate websites hosted in a shared hosting account on GoDaddy. I set up my primary domain name (http://praticapartners.com/) and installed wordpress several years ago. I recently set up a new website as a secondary domain (http://tomorrowslemonadestand.com/). As part of this site, I want to allow users to set up subdomains (ex, http://jane.tomorrowslemonadestand.com/). In order to do this, I installed wordpress multisite on the second domain. I was able to successfully install multisite on the second domain, but when I try to create new subdomain sites, they all go to my primary domain (http://praticapartners.com/).

    My question is: how can I make it so that new subdomains of tomorrowslemonadestand.com do not load praticapartners.com, but rather a fresh subdomain site of tomorrowslemonadestand.com? I think my problem is caused by the fact that this multisite install is on a secondary domain rather than the primary domain. Is there a workaround for this or do I need to set tomorrowslemonadestand.com as the primary domain?

  2. Is tomorrowslemonadestand.com a subsite of praticapartners.com ?

    No, tomorrowslemonadestand.com is hosted in the same GoDaddy hosting account, but other than that, unrelated to praticapartners.com.

  4. Huh. So my GUESS is that you're getting the redirect because it's an add-on domain, but if not, this is a question for GoDaddy since I know not their server configs for DNS redirects.

    Thank you. I called them and think that I got it worked out.
