[Plugin: WordPress MU Domain Mapping] Totally confused. Any help please
Hi I’m totally confused. I have a wordpress blog at http://www.mywebsite.com and that is fine. I have another blog through the network multi site option at http://www.mywebsite.com/subblog (sub folder installation). I have a domain http://www.anothersite.com which I would like to map to the blog at http://www.mywebsite.com/subblog
I want http://www.anothersite.com to exist in the address bar permanently so when some one clicks /news for that blog the address will say http://www.anothersite.com/news and not http://www.mywebsite.com/subblog/news even though technically that’s where they would be going to.
I have followed the instructions for installing the plugin manually.
I have set up an A record with the domain host for http://www.anothersite.com to point to the correct ip address 88.999.000.345 (which is the server ip address for http://www.mywebsite.com) . For good measure I have also set up a cname record for http://www.anothersite.com to point to http://www.mywebsite.com but not sure if I needed to do that.
When I go to http://www.anothersite.com it goes to a default apache server page, instead of the previous holding page set by the domain host. SO I know my A record / Cname record has done something but not quite sure why it’s going to an Apache page.
The primary address is http://www.mywebsite.com/subblog. If I change this so that the primary address is http://www.anothersite.com, then I lose the website and only see the default apache page when I visit either URL.
Is anyone able to detect what I am doing wrong with my set up? Have I set my A record or cname incorrectly? Should I remove the cname. I have tried different settings with the a record and cname but it takes 48 hours for each change I make to work and so cannot seem to get it correct.
Thanks very much in advance.
