Support » Fixing WordPress » Multisite issue with subsite new domain

  • howhuh


    I run WP 3.6 MU with a few subsites on subdirectory structure.
    All works fine, until I go to Sites > Edit site “x”, change domain from to

    The site is fully accessible using the new domain, including pages, posts and other site areas. Except for wp-admin. No matter if I try to access thru the Network admin or directly from the frondend, WP directs to “comsubdomain/wp-admin”. If I try to access wp-admin directly by typing I am redirected to comsubdomain/wp-admin as well.

    Tried several things including network deactivating domain mapping. Also tried changing back the site url to but that gives me a 404 on the frontend and a redirect of wp-admin to the mastersite admin panel.

    Please help!

    PS: This is my wp-config content:

    /** Allow Multisite **/
    define(‘WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE’, true);
    define(‘MULTISITE’, true);
    define(‘SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL’, false);
    /* define(‘DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘’); */
    define(‘PATH_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘/’);
    define(‘SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE’, 1);
    define(‘BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE’, 1);
    define( ‘BP_ENABLE_MULTIBLOG’, true );

    Commented out the CURRENT_SITE to solve another issue (as directed through WP Support Forums).

    Try double-checking the proper spelling of all your domains in Sites menu and also restore the commented-out DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE.



    Hmm, checked all and restored the commented line but too bad, no change

    What could be the cause of this?

    UPDATE: I got it working using a detour. For people running into the same problem, this is what I did:

    De-link the custom domain name
    De-activate the subsite
    Create a new subsite using the custom domain name
    Replace the new subsite install database tables with the old one’s

    Still wondering why this is happening. It’s not only this subsite, whenever trying to change the location of any subsite, thing get messed up… Hope anyone has a better solution

    Seems like a lot of work. Glad you got it fixed though.



    Yeah still waiting for the day WordPress doesn’t have so many flaws
