WPMU subdomains not working - any httpd.conf hints? (5 posts)

    On a fresh WPMU install, if I choose subdirectories, everything works perfectly.

    But, because I'd like to domain map some blogs later, when I install with subdomains, I get a Page Load Error when trying to visit a subdomain.

    This is not a WPMU problem, (probably httpd.conf), but thought this info would help others with the same problem.

    My experiments have all failed. We have a dedicated server, so I can do anything to it.

    Thanks so much for any hints, leads, tips, or links.

    Here is the VirtualHost section of my httpd.conf file:

        ServerAlias *
        DocumentRoot /home/dvctv/public_html
    <Directory /home/dvctv/public_html/>
    AllowOverride FileInfo Options
        <IfModule mod_suphp.c>
            suPHP_UserGroup dvctv dvctv
        <IfModule !mod_disable_suexec.c>
            User dvctv
            Group dvctv
        BytesLog /usr/local/apache/domlogs/
        CustomLog /usr/local/apache/domlogs/ combined
        ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /home/dvctv/public_html/cgi-bin/

    You have to ad the wildcard subdomain to your DNS records as well.

    I'm trying to do this as well, how do you put a wildcard in your DNS? I'm using and I'm trying to figure out how to get working the right way.

    You need to talk to your hosting company.
