[resolved] Selfhosted CDN and Multisite (3 posts)

    I had been using a selfhosted domain with selfhosted cdn which worked fine. I had set up a subdomain, media.doamin.tld, with its own apache.

    I tried with simple domain mapping to have http://www.domain.tld and media.domain.tld with no ftp access (since the files would always be exactly the same), while the urls had been rewritten it did not appear to work for plugins like pagespeed, I suppose since it was the same server process that which serves them - but then I don't know that many details how these things work :D

    So I'll try to set up a subdomain which will be used as CDN, like cdn.domain.tld ... but how do I do that best.

    My main domain vhosts.com reads like
    Serveralias *.domain.tld

    I suppose it would also server cdn.domain.tld? How can I get around that, I hope there is a better way than having to list all blog subdomains individually.

    If I point cdn.domain.tld to the same directory, I can skip the ftp part by leaving the credentials out, correct?

    Thanks in advance,

    Thanks for the suggestion, if it was answered int he FAQ I'd have no need to ask it here :D
    And yes it was more a hosting question than directed at W3tc. I simply hoped someone using the plugin was running into the same trouble.
    My solution was to disable CDN.
