Support » Plugin: WordPress MU Domain Mapping » Sunrise.php killed site?



    I installed plugin, everything was fine… when I uploaded sunrise.php and edited the WP-config file, immidiately aferwords the entire website became a blank white page, including the admin panel….. I turned off the settings in WP-config and it did not fix the issue…. I did nothing else other than upload the sunrise.php file, and edit the wp-config.php file…

    could it be an issue with .htaccess? I was playing around with that earlier…. otherwise I am uncertain, any advice? I can’t even fix the site at the moment….

    I am on a shared hosting dreamhost…. htaccess looks like this.

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.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).*) $2 [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*\.php)$ $2 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    Your .htaccess looks fine. If you delete the sunrise.php file, does it start working?

    If you;d like to provide your domain, I can take a quick look at your setup for you.


    *.tk is the domain…. the site was fully functional up to about 1 second after successfully uploading sunrise.php, creating the mu-plugins folder with the domain mapping .php file, editing the wpconfig file to activate sunrise.php, and refreshing the page…. no other changes were made during this time.


    I tried to delete it, no help… I may just have to reinstall the entire blog, yet I am extremely curious as to why this error has occurred…. any insight would be appreciated.


    This would to me imply that the activation of sunrise.php in the wp-config file allowed the script to make some change to a core file which caused the site to malfucntion…. I don’t know PHP well enough to know for sure, I am only guessing….. someone with better knowledge might be able to explain it.

    You need to remove domain_mapping.php from wp-content/mu-plugins/

    Also you don’t have to install the plugin there anymore. Just download it normally, leave it in wp-content/plugins/ and network activate.


    Thank you for being amazing, worked perfect…. I didn’t realize having an extra folder in the wordpress installation could cause it to crash.

    It’s not the folder, it’s just that anything inside that folder is set to run all the time 🙂 It used to be the only way to install a plugin that your other sites couldn’t see, but now a days, if you network activate the plugin, you get the same effect.
