Here's the situation:
I have a 'baby' plan on hostgator which allows unlimited addon domains. The main domain on this account is entirely unrelated to my WP multisite install, which is on an addon domain.
I put up a wildcard dns for the addon domain (set it to correct document root, not just public_html) and started to add some subdomains to the network, http://www.writerswithhats.com is the main site on the multisite install, I added 3 more subdomain sites to that. I can access all of the dashboards and edit settings just fine, but I am having some weird problems with accessing the sites.
The main site works fine, as does one of the subdomains. However, 2 of the 3 subdomains redirect to the main site on my hostgator account (entirely unrelated to these sites). What I have also noticed is that these two sites doing this redirect have directories on the ftp like: writerswithhats.com/(site name), while the other one, which works just fine, doesn't have a directory there.
Sorry if I seem to be rambling and haven't used the right terminology, still trying to wrap my head around all of this. Any help at all would be appreciated, I can provide more information if needed.
