Wildcard DNS (6 posts)

    I'm testing on shared hosting which does not allow wildcards. Is it possible to use mu without the wildcard?

    if you go for this structure i.e. yourblog.com => yourblog.com/userblog_1 yourblog.com/userblog_2 instead of userblog_1.yourblog.com yes, then you don't need the wildcard stuff.

    Thanks Ovidiu - sorry if this is a dumb question, where do I go to find information on how to change the structure in that way?

    there was someone else asking the same question in the last 1-2 months.

    I remember my answer: its not easily possible, way easier to start the isntallation again, then during isntallation, chose the isntalation type that suits you.

    I think I rememebr the other answer too: its not impossible but hard.

    Sorry I can't help you out here, try searching or wait for someone else to give you better advice.

    If you haven't created any blogs yet, edit wp-config.php and change vhost=yes to no.

    Only created a test one (which I couldn't validate because of the lack of the wildcard) so presume that's still doable...

    Thanks for the help...
