[Resolved] Wildcard dns warning although wildcard enabled

  • Hello,
    I have a wordpress site hosted on hostgator: http://www.nocturno.co.il.
    And now I want to install a network.
    So I created a subdomain ‘*’ pointed to the public_html directory (in order to enable wildcard dns), but when I try to install the network, I get a warning saying: “Warning! Wildcard DNS may not be configured correctly. The installer attempted to contact a random hostname…”
    I don’t get.
    The wildcard works, you can try it for yourselves.
    Am I missing something here?

    I haven’t found anything like this on the forums.
    I’d be very glad if someone could help me.

    I’m not sure if I need to post any more information about the site, but please tell me if any information is needed.

    Thanks!

  • Don’t worry about it. WP is probably trying out fakesub.co.il instead of fakesub.nocturno.co.il

    If it works, you’re good 🙂

    Hey, thanks for the quick reply!

    I ignored the warning and tried to continue with the installation.
    After I signed in again, I couldn’t find any network option on my admin panel.
    I was just in my regular site 🙁

    Could it be related to the wildcard warning, or is it a completely different problem?
