I’m having a big problem setting up domain mapping in multisite. I have the install, I have one subdomain already established. What I want to do, is bring another domain which was registered with Dreamhost into my network. What I did was this:
Turned on the WPMU Domain Mapping plugin.
Put my IP Address in the ‘Server IP address’ in the Domain Mapping Configuration page. Checked everything on the Domain options section.
Set up a subdomain.
Added the domain, associated it with the subdomain site with the ID, as per the Domain Mapping instructions.
Pointed the domain’s DNS to my IP address.
Yet, it doesn’t work. the site comes up as the original subdomain – yet if I go to the site super admin, the site has the domain name, not the subdomain.
All very confusing.
I don’t know much about servers and how to configure them. I have a private hosting plan with Datagram. Support has not been that helpful. As far as I understand, this should be a simple process. If anyone has a clear step by step process of how to import a domain name into MU, that would be great.
