Support » Plugin: WordPress MU Domain Mapping » Trying to map a subdomain into another subdmain

  • Hi,

    I’m trying to create a site on a Multisite WP platform (installed on a subdomain) but it doesn’t work.

    My MS-WP is installed on and from there I want to have another site that goes like: I’ve follow all the instructions:

    1. New site on
    2. Added the IP Address on Domain Mapping Configuration
    3. On panel set the primary domain to (already created with cpanel)
    4. When I change the siteurl to on multisite administrator panel I’m getting this error when I load that url: Template Error: The template file must be given (or the template could not be opened)

    Can anyone give me a hint? Thanks!

    Don’t do that. The point of the domain mapping plugin is it allows you to map the domain to the existing site.

    Thank you for your reply!

    I already did it that way. But I keep receiving the same error. Maybe it’s something related with cpanel configuration. There I’ve created a subdomain on ‘’ called ‘’ that goes on ‘public_html/two’. I don’t have a wildcard set. Should I have it?

    Remember my WP structure is installed on another subdomain: ‘’.

    I’ve have another MU WP site installed on another server – on the root address – and never had such problems. 🙁

    Thanks again.

    Then what you should do next is put the old URL back.

    Now I’ve spoiled everything. My main site @ ‘’ is showing ‘index of’ and the folder ‘one’ cpanel’s filemanager is saying ‘this directory is empty’. Is everything gone? Damn!

    I was just trying to install a buddypress on the side of the main website, with a different theme/address.

    Probably not. You’ll have to contact your hosting support to see about fixing your hosting account.
