Subdirectory domain mapping

  • Hello all,

    I have successfully set up WordPress Multi-site on my server. I have faithfully followed every single step that was listed by WordPress.

    I am using the subdirectory install and everything is fine as of now except the domain mapping part.

    mydomain.com/site1
    mydomain.com/site2
    mydomain.com/site3
    mydomain.com/site4
    .
    .
    .
    works fine!

    Mapping http://www.xyz.com to mydomain.com/site1 throws a “403 Forbidden
    You don’t have permission to access / on this server.” error.

    I have followed this tutorial (and also installed that plugin):
    http://ottopress.com/2010/wordpress-3-0-multisite-domain-mapping-tutorial/

    Something to do with .htaccess? Here’s my htaccess:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [L]

    ErrorDocument 404 /index.php?error=404

    RewriteRule ^login$ /wp-login.php [L]
    RewriteRule ^signup$ /wp-signup.php [L]
    RewriteRule ^register$ /wp-register.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]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ – [L]
    RewriteRule ^[_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $1 [L]
    RewriteRule ^[_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/(.*\.php)$ $1 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    I have set up TWO A records on my domain manager for xyz.com to point to my server’s IP address.

    Address:xyz.com | Type:A RECORD | Points to: server IP
    Address:www.xyz.com | Type:A RECORD | Points to: server IP

    And still, it throws a 403 error on me. Any help would be much appreciated.
