I have just completed a fresh install of a WordPress 3.3.1 Network (Multisite) using subdomains. It currently has 2 sites, the primary install and a subdomain. The Registrar is GoDaddy, but the URL has been pointed to the nameservers directly. I have added the DNS wildcard using cPanel. The server setup is comprised of the latest and greatest...
The .htaccess is configured with the rules supplied by the Network setup, and the wp-config file has been edited as per the setup instructions. I have cleared my DNS, flushed the cookies and given appropriate time for propagation.
I can view both sites (using the individual domains) and I can login to the primary install's Dashboard (using a super user account). I cannot, however, login to the subdomain's Dashboard. I am thrown to a redirect that doesn't seem to resolve. I can't even access it while logged into the primary Dashboard as a super user.
I have read countless posts, most refer to pre 3.3.1 framework that requires the MU Domain Mapping Plugin (although I did try it without success). And I have read the codex, but it too seems dated. This leads me to ask the following:
- Is the MU DNS Mapping Plugin necessary?
- If not, what do I need to start poking at? :)
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
