Support » Networking WordPress » WordPress MU Domain Mapping works with subfolder?

  • Resolved Sampheap

    (@sampheap)


    I tried WordPress MU Domain Mapping with my Multisite /blog/ but it only show: Warning! This plugin will only work if WordPress is installed in the root directory of your webserver. It is currently installed in ’/blog/’.

    How do I use it with folder like that?

    You don’t.

    If you want to map a domain, put WordPress in /, not /blog/.

    Thanks for quick response. I might be confused, but I read the discussion here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-wordpress-mu-domain-mapping-domain-mapping-ms-subdirectory-installations
    and it said about park? Can this really be tweaked or none to zero change?

    That’s not the same thing.

    You can map a subfolder install (i.e. domain.com/sitename)

    You cannot map a sub-subfolder install (i.e. domain.com/blog/sitename)

    That’s just a problem with how webservers work.

    I have also looked everywhere and seem to find no solution, but I found another paid plugin: http://premium.wpmudev.org/project/domain-mapping

    Do you know if this plugin can do the job? If not, how do you recommend me moving it to root where I already have my main site installed?

    Sorry to ask many questions, but I am pretty new to dis multisite.

    Where is WordPress installed?

    Where is the MAIN WordPress site?

    If WordPress is installed in domain.com/ you’re fine.

    If you installed it so the main site is domain.com/blog/, then no plugin will help you.

    my main site already installed at mydomain.com and the multi site is at mydomain.com/blog

    You’re doing this wrong.

    If your MAIN site is mydomain.com, then you turn on Multisite there and build child sites off mydomain.com directly. You do not make a second installation of WP to run as Multisite. Defeats the purpose 🙂

    Thanks a lot for all answers. Yeah, I kinda crazy about this 🙂
    Will just convert my main site to mutlisite then.

    Again, thank you Ipstenu.
