subdomain multisite on Amazon EC2 (7 posts)

    I am trying to install multisite with subdomains on virtual server.
    My site_url is an ip address.

    I do not want to direct my domain to the site yet ( its under development).

    How can I continue?

  2. You either hook up the domain name now or you mess with your hosts file.

    So I mess with my hostfile:  myfakedomain.com  *.myfakedomain.com

    What do I do with the IP in the DB?

    it should be with the real IP. isn't it?

    my.real.elastic.ip  my.fakedomain.com
    my.real.elastic.ip  *.my.fakedomain.com
  5. is your local IP, always. It's the same as saying 'localhost'

    So yes, use

    my.real.elastic.ip  my.fakedomain.com
    my.real.elastic.ip  *.my.fakedomain.com
  6. and use the real domain in the db at the IP address.

    it won;t work for visitors to the IP address, and it won;t interfere with the live domain. only you see the domain installed with that domain name at the new ip address.

    And that means I only access the site locally...

    Thanks for both you.
