[resolved] wp-admin access problem - second root (6 posts)

    I am having problems accessing wp-admin on my second root of my cPanel using multisites. I am using subdomains setup.

    Setup on same cPanel=:

    Root-1 TLD-Domain_1, Parked-TLD-domains_1+2+3
    --Root-2 TLD-Domain_2, Parked-TLD-domain_4

    I can access front and back-end Root-1 for TLD-Domain_1 & Parked-TLD-domains_1+2+3

    I can access the front-end and backend for TLD-Domain_2, also I can access the front-end for Parked-TLD-domain_4, but I cannot access the back-end admin for Parked-TLD-domain_4

    When accessing Parked-TLD-domain_4/wp-admin, I am redirected to
    -> http://TLD-Domain_1/wp-signup.php?new=Parked-TLD-domains_4.TLD-Domain_2

    I created a htaccess file in Root-2 and entered the required info from the install.

    My thinking is either multisites does not support what I am trying to do, or I have a misconfiguration, can anyone see where the problem could be?

    Thank you

  2. Parked domains in cpanel normally go tp the main domain of the web account.

    If the second root (root2) is in a folder off of root1, then that;s why.

    It's not multisite, it's the config. If you;re trying to domain map Parked4 to TLD2, don't park it, use the add-on domain feature and change the doc root to root2.

    Thanks Andrea,

    You are correct, the Root1 domains are parked under parked domains, Root_2 is a folder with addon TLS's domains mapped to it.

    It looks like I have done this correctly, and from your comments WordPress should accommodate this.
    I have almost certainly an error in my setup or config.
    Everything works except wp-admin, I guess I may have to seek out a reliable support partner.

    Any recommendations?

    Thanks Andrea,

    Knowing that WordPress supported what I was trying to achieve, and also that my mapping was OK helped me track down my mistake.

    I read further, my DB was OK so I looked on.

    I unchecked this option, no idea what it is, but I can now access my admin pages.

    Redirect administration pages to site's original domain (remote login disabled if this redirect is disabled)

    Thank you, hope this helps someone else with the same problem.

  5. Redirect administration pages to site's original domain

    In english, this says

    "Do you want the wp-admin area of the mapped domain to use the mapped domain address or the original subdomain/subfolder address?"
