Wordpress Multisite


Virtualmin and Webmin is owesome, Im not totally geek but I managed to understand more aboaut LINUX just by doing configuration/reconfiguration. WELLL DONE Guys!~

I have annoying problem recently about wildcard for domains, I need to install wordpress for Multisite but it just doesn’t works. And I don’t know how to troubleshot the problem.
I m really positive Im doing recommended step by step on per wordpress installation. It just that the wordpress can not recognize any sub domain that I want to have. (*.mydamain.com)
If you guys want to look on my apache directive As you can see already have

ServerAlias *.mydomain.com

heres a go…

SuexecUserGroup “#1014” “#1016
ServerName mydomain.com
ServerAlias .mydomain.com
DocumentRoot /home/goclick/public_html
ErrorLog /var/log/virtualmin/mydomain.com_error_log
CustomLog /var/log/virtualmin/mydomain.com_access_log combined
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /home/goclick/cgi-bin/
DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.php index.php4 index.php5
<Directory /home/goclick/public_html>
Options -Indexes +IncludesNOEXEC +FollowSymLinks
allow from all
AllowOverride All

<Directory /home/goclick/cgi-bin>
allow from all

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} =webmail.mydomain.com
RewriteRule ^(.
) http://mydomain.com:20000/ [R]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} =admin.mydomain.com
RewriteRule ^(.*) https://mydomain.com:10000/ [R]


Well, it looks like you have Apache configured correctly… what’s happening, is your request being directed to WordPress, but WordPress is showing the website for the parent domain (mydomain.com)?


According to wordpress guide to enable multisite, my server will need to redirect any subdomain request to its parent. And the parent will then handle this request.

There was session on wordpress when its trying to do random test and subdomain, its failed as it said my dns not responding or something…
Do you think you can help me to troubleshoot this?
