Support » Fixing WordPress » Subdomain redirects in WordPress multisite

  • Resolved Andrew Ledwith


    I have WordPress 3.0.3 with multisite setup on my domain, Currently I do not have any subdomain sites setup. But in my host’s cPanel I have three subdomains set to redirect to other pages. They have not worked since I enabled multisite. Is there something special or specific I need to do to keep these redirects from breaking?

  • How did you set up Multi-Site? Did you modify anything in your cPanel to do so?

    The only change I made in my cPanel to setup multisite was adding a wildcard redirect. I setup multisite “by the book,” so to speak. I used the directions given me in WordPress when I enabled multisite in my wp-config file.

    Try removing your existing subdomain redirects and then re-adding them. I’m not 100% certain, but I think in most DNS configurations, the wildcard/implicit (*) subdomain has to appear first, then explicit subdomain definitions have to occur after the wildcard definition.

    Go to dashboard Super Admin > Options – Registration Settings > Banned Names. Add names of physical subdomains to avoid conflict

    Removing the existing subdomain redirects and re-adding them seems to have worked. Thanks for the help.

    I also have these subdomains listed as banned names.

    You’re welcome. Happy Holidays 🙂
