Support » Networking WordPress » Unable to Login to Mapped Domains

  • On my multisite install, I mapped subdomains e.g., mysite.com/blog1/.

    It seemed fine. I can access the sites in my browser via their domain names, e.g., blog1.com

    However, I cannot access these subdomain sites via sites under the superadmin dashboard. When I attempt to click the backend, I get a 404 error and the site is showing up in the browser as mysite.com/blog1/

    If I try to access the admin panel through blog1/wpadmin, my username and password are not accepted.

    I have a feeling it might have something to do with my .htaccess file as, for some reason, it was completely blank. I had to manually add code to install several plugins. Here’s what it consist of:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [L]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_METHOD} !=POST
    RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} !.*=.*

    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?wp-admin$ $1wp-admin/ [R=301,L]

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

    If anyone could help, I’d really, really appreciate it!!! I’m stimied

    Care to clarify this part? I don’t see a subdomain here 🙂
    Or did you map some subdomain like test.test.com *to* mysite.com/blog1 ?

    And no, .htaccess has nothing to do with domain mapping.

    Same issue in this thread:

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/broken-permalinks-with-domain-mapping?replies=10#post-1651208

    It’s quite possible now that, yes, the htaccess *IS* actually interfering, becasue there are two extra lines for subfolder installs. I’d be tempted to remove them to check and see if the subdomain permalinks then work. It’d knock out the subfolder links, but then we’d narrow it down.
