[resolved] wordpress incorrectly receiving wildcard-when to throw in the towel? (7 posts)

    Apparently my subdomains aren't working with my MutliSite setup. They are configured properly (Per hostgator)but dont seem to wanna point to the right WP page.
    I think I can pretty much rule out DNS propagation as a cause since its been over 24 hours.
    This is my 1st experience with this.. I come from the design end... far end.
    Do I need to do (another) reinstall of wp? Or can I just back up to deleting the wildcard & subdomains?
    Site is at bloggingwithfamily.com
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]

    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteRule ^wp-admin$ wp-admin/ [R=301,L]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule ^(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $1 [L]
    RewriteRule ^(.*\.php)$ $1 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]
    define('WP_DEBUG', false);
    define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);
    define('MULTISITE', true);
    define('SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', true);
    define('DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', 'bloggingwithfamily.com');
    define('PATH_CURRENT_SITE', '/');
    define('SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1);
    define('BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1);
    define( 'SUNRISE', 'on' );

    Apache log is clean

    Have you made the required changes to wp-config.php?

    Yes.. I pasted the wp-config

  4. http://asasaas.bloggingwithfamily.com/ pulls up a page that is 100% a DNS problem.

    If I go here, I can see you have no DNS set for it: http://www.whatsmydns.net/#A/asasaas.bloggingwithfamily.com

    But compare that to this: http://www.whatsmydns.net/#A/bloggingwithfamily.com

    They should be the same. that they're not means you did not set up wildcard subdomains correctly in your DNS (you can compare that to asasdasd.ipstenu.org and ipstenu.org, which both point to the same place). Remember, there are two parts to wildcard subdomains. One is DNS (i.e. telling the world that whatever.yourdomain.com lives at your server's IP), and the other is on your sevrer (telling the server that whatever.yourdomain.com points to the data found at yourdomain.com). You probably did the second part, but not the first.

    This morning (about 4 hours ago) I deleted the wildcard & subdomains, turned off all plugins- except the wordpress mu domain mapping.
    I wasnt sure if anyone was going to reply on here and am getting a bit impatient since I have been trying to get this setup for 4 days now.
    So if I didnt do the 2nd part can you please let me know what that is?
    The only subdomain I set up this 2nd time was
    If its the domain mapping, I have the plug-in installed.. did the sunset file..in my admin panel I filled out the IP and options. Then I also filled it in under domains (site ID & domain).
    I dont know what else to do. This is where all of the tutorials end.
    Thank you

    Ok. I phoned hostgator this time and talked to them.
    Hopefully if someone else has this problem this will help them.
    Hostgator has to change the dns.. it isnt correct in their system they have to change something.

    Thanks again Ipstenu :)
