    define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);

    logoin to my shared hostgator cpanel

    went to subdomain and add my domain


    and rooted to public html since i am using only one domain ..on my root

    i checked both of my site address in wp general section..both r same

    i install my wordpress in root

    i went to file manager then wp-content then add folder blogs.dir

    i copy wp-config coding+ httcces coding hence

    # BEGIN WordPress
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    # uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$2 [L]
    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?wp-admin$ $1wp-admin/ [R=301,L]

    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*\.php)$ $2 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    and for wp-config

    define('WP_DEBUG', false);
    /* Multisite */
    define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);
    define('MULTISITE', true);
    define('SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', true);

    My Questions
    Please make sure the Apache mod_rewrite module is installed as it will be used at the end of this installation.

    If mod_rewrite is disabled, ask your administrator to enable that module, or look at the Apache documentation or elsewhere for help setting it up.

    I am getting this message from wordpress…& I unable to comlete my installtion..Plz enable Apache mod-rewrite as soon as possible so i can complete my installtion

    And I need sir all this


    PHP 5.2.4 or greater

    MySql 5.0.15 or greater

    Apache_mod_rewrite module

    WordPress must install in root directory plz check if i am dome correctly or not

    also did you support wild card DNS?

    There Anwser:


    Yes, wildcard is enabled, mod_rewrite is also enabled by default on all our machine.

    Apache version 2.2.23
    PHP version 5.3.19
    MySQL version 5.1.65-cll

    Those information can all be found over cPanel.

    Let us know if you need anything further, we’ll be happy to help!

    You will probably need some module such as for handling mapped domains.

    The best way to got some help with your script is still to contact your developer directly:

    That isn’t a WordPress error, it’s a server error. You don’t have WildCard subdomains working, so WordPress isn’t even being called.

    Check your DNS on

    If the value is not 100% the same as the main domain, that’s the problem.

    removed screenshot for security purpose

    i talk to my host and they said my wild card subdomain is enable default on all over there machine

    Point them to

    Show them it’s not working. Ask them if there’s something else you need to do to make it get picked up.

    Until and unless you get a green checkmark for, your wildcard subdomains aren’t complete. The host should know there are two parts to that. One is the server and the other is your DNS. BOTH have to have wildcards.

    I had the same issue, I was able to get it fixed.

    I had the wildcard sub domains set up but I had to contact host gator to enable it for my domain.

    I have private name servers.

    Hopes this helps.

    I’m having the same issue but I’m still not able to get it fixed.

    I have the wildcard sub domain set up and when I contacted Hostgator the tech support rep told me it was set up correctly and it might take 8 hours for it to work.

    I’m wondering how newdon is getting along and wondering if there is hope for me. 🙂

    Check your sites on

    If the subdomains come up with red X’s, wait 8-10 hours and try again. If they STILL don’t work, hit your host and show them the results.

    This is not a WP error, however, it’s your server. There’s nothing more we can do to fix it for you 🙁
