WordPress 3 subdomain installation
Will WP3.0 work installed in a subdomain (
http://wordpress.mydomain.com) or must it be installed in a primary domain (
http://www.otherdomain.com), for the multi-site features to work?
I have an existing website in (Apache)
public_html/, a WP2.97 blog in
public_html/blog, an add-on domain (
I want mydomain.com and addondomain.com to have a blog (either
blog1.mydomain.com and blog2.addondomain.com, or
mydomain.com/blog1 and addondomain.com/blog2).
I have wildcard DNS configured for my main domain, WP3 installed in a subdomain (
wordpress.mydomain.com) and Donncha’s “WordPress MU Domain Mapping” plugin installed.
The “Create a Network of WordPress Sites” page says to add lines to wp-config.php file in
/home/username/public_html/wordpress/, and update .htaccess file in
/home/username/public_html/wordpress/, and I have done that.
The Add Site page asks for
No error messages, seems like it should work, and yet when I create a site, it doesn’t display. When I create a blog “chess”, and browse to
http://wordpress.mydomain.com/chess/, it displays my main blog (
http://chess.wordpress.mydomain.comgives “Oops! Firefox could not find chess.wordpress.mydomain.com”.
