Can't help you on the email :/ Check your spam folder, though.
I felt you were inconsiderate replying to a 7 month old post and thread-jacking it, following a conversation in that same post about how the person before you should make their own post. I guess no one's happy. Certainly not the guy who started the post and couldn't get help thanks to everyone stepping on his feet.
And you're also inconsiderate for posting in a second post something that should be posted here.
Let me help:
I did everything at the http://gmichaelguy.com/blog/2010/11/28/my-wordpress-3-0-multi-site-domain-mapping-with-godaddy/ site.
Still no joy. Whats going on here?
I have mymergemedia.com
I am trying to make, http://mymergemedia.com/imergeandsee
go to imergeandsee.com
I did all the steps, have gone through dozens of forum posts and no joy with anything.
I set up the sunrise in the wp-config.php (see below).
I copied the plug in file 'domain_mapping' to the mu-plugins folder.
I set up the DNS in the imergeandsee.com, as instructed the A Record goes to the I.P. Address 126.96.36.199 the CNAME 'WWW' goes to mymergemedia.com
It was a similar process for using the Google Blogger which I had working for the last 5 years, 'A' name in the Domain goes to I.P. Address, and the WWW points to the domain (for google it was ghs.google.com, the blogger address 'imergeandsee.blogspot.com') I assume the WordPress Domain plugin does this same thing on my "mymergemedia.com" domain.
So is something wrong with the plugin then? If so how do I fix it?
I have been trying to fix this for the past week, my imergeandsee.com has been down
* Change this to true to enable the display of notices during development.
* It is strongly recommended that plugin and theme developers use WP_DEBUG
* in their development environments.
define( 'MULTISITE', true );
define( 'SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', false );
$base = '/';
define( 'DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', 'mymergemedia.com' );
define( 'PATH_CURRENT_SITE', '/' );
define( 'SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1 );
define( 'BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1 );
define( 'SUNRISE', 'on' );
/* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */
/** Absolute path to the WordPress directory. */
if ( !defined('ABSPATH') )
define('ABSPATH', dirname(__FILE__) . '/');
/** Sets up WordPress vars and included files. */
require_once(ABSPATH . 'wp-settings.php');
The only other thing I can think is that I have sub domains entertainment.imergeandsee.com, lifestyle.imergeandsee.com are two of them. Right now the home page is dead and I am losing my traffic. I need a fix ASAP. I had a similar problem for 3 weeks with the multi site network I'm thinking, I'll have to dump the word press effort and go back to blogger. I'll suffer for a few more days but thus far the extra stress and effort has not been worth it.
Now based on ALL of that, you have
define( 'SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', false ); but you say you're also using subdomains. These are separate subdomains, not connected to your WP install, right?
Also is 188.8.131.52 the correct IP for imergeandsee.com? Have you tried pointing the CNAME and ANAME to that instead of to the domain?
Otto's tutorial - http://ottopress.com/2010/wordpress-3-0-multisite-domain-mapping-tutorial/ - mentions that he only pointed the A record to the IP, and not the CNAME at all.
