WebFaction
Community site: login faq

Hi,

I successfully installed wordpress 3.3.1 subdomain mu yesterday and as far as I can tell, I've installed the "WordPress MU Domain Mapping" plugin correctly. The subdomain sites work if I use the subdomain url (subdomain.domain.com) but if I change the primary domain to another domain (from subdomain.domain.com to domain1.com) which is on webfaction, the site will not work. When I go to domain1.com, I'll only see the webfaction coming soon page. Has anyone else encountered this?

Thanks!

It sounds to me like you have not added domain1.com to the website record that serves your WPMU app. If you don't have the domain assigned to the website record, then our domain-based virtual hosting setup won't know what to serve for that domain.

If you are certain that you have all of the domains assigned to the site and it is still not working properly, feel free to open a support ticket and we'll be happy to take a closer look.

Yes!!!

That was it. I needed to add domain1.com to my app. I didn't realize that because all the documentation I have been reviewing was based solely on wordpress.

Thank you very much!!!
