I can’t get Domain Mapping to work for a WordPress (Version 3.4.1) Multisite using the popular Plugin “WordPress MU Domain Mapping” found here:
http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-mu-domain-mapping/

I am the Super Admin and there are no other Admins in the Network.

The WordPress install is hosted at WHH. The Domain is registered with another registrar.

The Multisite Network uses Subfolder Structure. I want to change http://networkname.com/blogname
to
http://blogname.com

The DNS at the registrar were changed to
ns1.webhostinghub.com
ns2.webhostinghub.com

The Domain was added in the WP MS with corresponding correct ID#.
______________________

Testing the URL blogname.com, no result in my Browser.

I contacted the WHH Support and was informed I had to add the Domain as an Addon Domain. Is this correct? Again I’m using the popular Plugin for Domain Mapping.

I added the Domain blogname.com as an Addon Domain with no Redirection.
______________________

Testing the URL blogname.com, I get a
Index of/cgi-bin/
for the folder created for the Addon Domain instead of a redirect to http://networkname.com/blogname.

What am I doing wrong? Thanks a lot!

Hello Rob_2012,

Sorry this took a little time to get an answer for you. I took a look at the installation and it does appear to be correct. However, I'm not sure why technical support had you create a separate domain using ADD-ON domains. Typically, the Wordpress multi-site setup allows you to have multiple sites using the same setup. If you want for each installation to be separate, then you should install separate for each installation that you require - using separately registered domain names.

Can you please specify how you're trying to use this Wordpress installation? This way, we can determine if the MU setup is correct.

If you have any further questions, please contact technical support or leave a comment at the bottom of the page.

Regards,

Arnel C.
