Hey everyone. Great post, tutorial, and plugin. Just want to say thanks all around.
One thing that seems to come up a few times in this discussion, but never really explained by the ninjas, is getting a subdomain that it mapped to work if someone types subdomain.com into their address bar.
Just so I can let you know all my steps:
A. I have my main domain as the main account on a shared host (hostgator with cpanel)
B. I created a subdomain and called it * and the root domain = maindomain.com and the document root is /public_html
C. In my wp-config.php I have this rule define( 'DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', 'maindomain.com' );
D. In my domain mapping options, I have it set to to server CNAME domain instead of the IP address (the ip doesn't go to my main site if I type it in my address bar) and I've entered maindomain.com
E. I've successfully parked 10 subdomains and added 10 subdomain.maindomain.com sites.
F. I've successfully mapped each subdomain to work at http://www.subdomain.com.
G. Here is where my trouble starts. If I navigate to subdomain.com or maindomain.com without the www I get an error "The page isn't redirecting properly Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete. * This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies." - This seems like a big error to me. How can I force an attempt to navigate to a non www site go to the correct http://www.site.com address?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
