So I know how to set up mufti site, its not hard, a baby could do it. but what I am wondering about is this error i have gotten and a clients strange request:
A) the issue is when setting up multsite i get this warning which does screw everything up and i have to recreate a data base and everything.
warning wild card dns may not be configured correctly.
the installer attempted to contact a random host name on your domain. this resulted in an error message "couldn't resolve host 'x'"
you can still use your site but any subdomain may not be accessible. if you know your dns is correct ignore this message.
but if you read B) then does this error really need to be fixed? and if so then were both screwed because their is no way to create a wild card on his hosting service that i have found under domain tools.
B) when you do subdomains, is their code to change so that instead of site1.basesite.com, you can just go to site1.com with out loosing that multisite touch? the client wants to use multi site to keep his 250+ domains in one area to make upgrading the blogs and bla easier but he doesn't like sub directory or the way subdomain looks...
note: he's a relater hence the amount of domains.
