My site go BLANK with the domain-mapping.php (5 posts)

    Hi, I'm having problems creating my multisite subdomain network. It works fine in directory install. I've installed it in the root, created my wildcard subdomain and redirected it to the blog domain. I've manually installed the mu-domain-mapping plugin. I created the mu-plugins folder under wp-content - but the moment I add the domain-mapping.php, my blog goes blank. once I remove it, my main blog is again visible, but my subdomain dashboard gives an NOT FOUND error message.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks June

    Have you updated the .htaccess rules to those required by multisite?

    You can also use domain mapping with a subdirectory network, which removed the headache of wildcard subdomains.

    I hadn't seen the other option you suggested about the subdirectory network - and I may have to go back to that option if I can't get this other figured out.

    About the subdirectory option, I guess the benefit of mapping here is for new domains? What I was hoping for was the ability to create my blogs as subdomains. I assume that mapping doesn't solve that problem, correct?

    - or maybe I could create the subdomains in cpanel and map to those? I'm not very tech savvy, so does that make any sense?

    Thanks, June

  5. Domian Mapping doesn't impact SubDomains. They're not actually related.

    In cpanel, try making a subdomain of * (yes, just * ) and point that to /public_html/ (or whever the root of your WP install is).

    If you can't make wildcard domains, then you can manually make subdomains. Create a subdomain
    name: foo.domain.com
    location: /public_html/

    The default location is /public_html/foo/ so you just change that :)
