Using a subdomain of a mapped domain (4 posts)

    I've got a mapped domain on a multi-site install that is working fine. I'm trying, however, to use a subdomain of that mapped domain for another application (a listserv). In WPMU 2.9 I was able to do this. I was using the mapped domain plugin and I just added the domain on to my host and then set up a subdomain. When I installed the application in the corresponding directory, it worked.

    However, since upgrading to 3.0, I can't get this to work. The main mapped domain is working fine, but when I try to access the installed application at the subdomain I get the following message:

    "No site defined on this host. If you are the owner of this site, please check Debugging a WordPress Network for help."

    Any ideas how to fix this?


  2. Move the record for the subdomain up higher in the apache config file.

    Yes, I know, that's technical. :)

    Basically, the subdomain request is going to the network install before it bothers looking elsewhere on the server.

    your webhost may be able to help fix that.

    Once again you rule, and so you know, we submitted the request to our server admin like this:

    Could you please modify apache configuration on umwblogs.org
    <http://umwblogs.org> so that the domain share.teachumw.org
    <http://share.teachumw.org> has a virtual host declaration that points
    to this folder /home/umwblogs/public_html/share

    Sometimes sharing the terminology of how to ask can be just as helpful as understanding something, which i don't claim to :)

  4. No, YOU RULE! *high fives*
