  • Resolved lobotomys


    hello, i tried everything to make it working , and i’m getting crazy after 3 days.
    even the support of that i spent one hour with didn’t succeded to make it working andd suggested me to ask help here.

    my domain names are hosted by Dreamhost , and are pointing to hostgator.

    main domain name is who has the installation of WordPress MU network on it, site is running, super admin panel, etc everything is working including my website on it.
    it’s set as a primary domain in MU. in Cpanel of hostgator, wild card is set so .. * at

    i wanted to add a second blog to my MU WordPress.
    domain name : hosted by dreamhost too.
    i followed all the instructions , i did the Mapping using MU Domain mapping, and followed the instructions … it’s not working. the hostgator support failed to make it working too.

    the only thing i didn’t do, because i don’t know what to do with dreamhost DNS, is the REcord Cname or Aname stuff who is explained on some blog.

    here the list of everything who has been done :
    main domain name : (dreamhost)
    website installed at the root of my hostgator webhosting in MU Mode.
    second domain name :
    point from dreamhost to hostgator server too.

    wildcard in Cpanel has been done for *
    in WP MU , is mapped to
    with : ID 2.

    the support from gator told me that there mustn’t be a addon name on the Cpanel for to work with a WordPress MU installation and they removed it.

    since then, i’m blocked … help please !! thanks !
