The never-ending subdomain story... (4 posts)

    I can't make my WP MU work with subdomains although I've checked twice with my host that wildcard DNS is ON.

    I've read many posts about this issue but most of them refer to wildcard settings not being turned on. What else might cause such problem?

    Btw. here is my site - -just in case you have never seen newly installed WP MU before :-)

    do you have acces to your httpd.conf file?

    when i first set mine up i could do everything but set up a new blog i would get the email activete ...etc and do all that but then couldn't actually go to the newly created blog...

    I had to edit the httpd.conf file on my server to allow overide all instead of none

    <directory "blogroot">
    AllowOverride All

    I used subdirectories for my installation but they are still "virtual" subdirectories in that new blog is where the directory test/ doesn't actually exist on the server but is made by wpmu and is simply a value stored in the database, I know that it handles subdomains similairly.

    If this doesnt help more info about what actually happens when you try to set up a new blog will help narrow down the problem.

    You need to tell us what is occuring and what you;re seeing. We need to know what specifically is the issue. What happens when you create a new blog or someone signs up? are you getting some sort of error?

    Please rememeber that only you knows what is occuring. All we can do is make guesses unless we also know what is occuring.

    I note that your blog post is not working. Is your .htaccess file populated? does it look like your htaccess.dist file? The error says it put information in your webserver's error logs. have you check them?
