Support » Networking WordPress » Subdomain Problem

  • I need to add a new subnmain to my network. I’ve previously added subdomains, without any issues. I am using the Domain Mapping Plug-in, which I just upgraded.

    I recently added the domain to my network and it’s parent site works perfectly fine. It’s the sub-domain site that’s not.

    Here’s the subdomain page http://vickilyn.papercapersdesigns.com/

    TIA!

  • not sure of the problem, but this works
    http://papercapersdesigns.com/vickilyn

    I want it to be vickilyn.papercapersdesigns.com What am I doing wrong?

    If when you added a subdomain in your hosts panel, and it made a physical folder, that’d be part of the problem.

    Currently I have consulting.thequades.com and it works just fine (I set this up back in August)

    I have wild cards set-up with my host. I did check there isn’t a folder named vickilyn in the root.

    http://vickilyn.papercapersdesigns.com/ gives me a server not found.

    Did you set upo the dns for it? Is it set up on the host end as well?

    papercapersdesigns.com works just fine and is set up with my host. I have added a “*” subdomain just like I have set-up with thequades.com which allows consulting.thequades.com to work.

    If thequades.com is the main install, then setting up a wildcard subdomain for the mapped domain is not going to work in the same way.

    How did you add it? In cpanel? Did you tell it to go to the same folder as your multisite install?

    thequades.com is the main domain name. I added the wildcard domains in the cpanel with them going to the root folder.

    If they don’t work the same way for other domains, what do I need to do?

    Thanks!

    Andrea,

    I might have found part of the problem… you can can tell me if it’s wrong. papercapersdesigns.com was purchased through Go Daddy, then the dns pointed to my hosting. Do I need to make a subdomain at Go Daddy?

    No they don;t work the same, and what you need to do depends on your host.

    If you wanted sub sites off your mapped domains, you woudl have been better off with a multinetwork plguin.

    You can still do what you want with just domain mapping though. You’ll have to set up a CNAME record at godaddy and send it to the thequades.com install.

    then you need to park that subdomain at your webhost, right on top of hequades.com.

    Since, I’m sure this won’t be the last time I add something. Which multinetwork plugin do you recommend?

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-multi-network/

    or one called networks+ which is paid, and mine. but try the free one first.

    you still need to do some server setup tho. 😉

    Where can I find the info on the server setup?
