Support » Fixing WordPress » switching blog to a subdomain mapping

  • wpuser100


    My blog is currently pointing to the root of my domain. Let’s call it I’d like it to be a subdomain (e.g., The WordPress blog is hosted on GoDaddy. Note that I don’t want which is what the help page describes. This is what I did.

    I first changed the wildcard (@) A NAME in GoDaddy to the IP address I want to use for the main domain (which is a different server). That worked fine. Then I added an A NAME entry for “blog” and entered the IP for the WordPress site (the one that used to be associated with “@”). (BTW CNAME didn’t seem to work either)

    Then I went into the wp-admin dashboard and changed the WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL) settings to “” instead of “”

    After making these changes, navigating to “” did not get to WordPress, the page simply echoed “pageok.”

    I’d appreciated any help. Thanks
