WordPress MU Domain Mapping
[resolved] WordPress MU Domain Mapping direct to no WP Installation (6 posts)

    Hi,
    I've just set up my multisite on Siteground. All appears to be working well except for the Domain Mapping. I followed the Lynda Tutorial "Lynda.com Creating And Managing A Blog Network With WordPress" to the letter, but when I open my mapped site I just find the blank page with [DIR] cgi-bin/. (see it here at http://stephaniemcfee.com/ - the original created site was http://steph.skippycast.org). Before I mapped the site, the steph.skippycast.org was fine. Any ideas?

    I had the addon pointing to the wrong dir :/
    Sometimes you just need to sleep on it.

    I'm actually having this same problem. Could you go into a little more detail about what steps you took to fix the problem? Thanks.

    I actually went back and deleted my mapping and started again, but I think I know why I was getting an issue. When I set it up I pointed the subdomain to 'public_html/mysitename.com'. This was wrong. It should have been pointing to the location of the wordpress installation - in my case just public_html. Because it was directed incorrectly, when it went looking for the new location it defaulted to where the site used to be located, a folder called 'mysitename.com' in the main directory - That is why I got a bank page with directories as opposed to a 404 error. Does that make sense?

    If you are having major issues, just detail them and I will respond. I spent the last 2-days learning from scratch about mutisites and setting them up so it is pretty fresh.
