http://USER1.domain.com not working at all!

  • 1. Which version of WPMU are you running?

    2.8.5.2

    2. Did you install WPMU as a directory or subdomain install?

    Directory

    3. If a directory install, is it in root or in a subdirectory?

    I have shared hosting and it all located in the /public_html folder

    4. Did you upgraded from a previous version of WPMU? If so, from which version?

    Clean Insatll

    5. Was WPMU functioning properly before installing/upgrading BuddyPress?

    Haven’t checked…

    6. Which version of BuddyPress (BP) are you running?

    Latest. Just downloaded yesterday

    7. Did you upgraded from a previous version of BP? If so, from which version?

    Nupe

    8. Do you have any plugins other than BuddyPress installed and activated?

    Nupe

    9. Are you using the standard BuddyPress themes or customized themes?

    Standard

    10. Have you modified the core files in any way?

    Not at all

    11. Do you have any custom functions in bp-custom.php?

    Did’t even open that

    12. If running bbPress, which version? Or did your BuddyPress install come with a copy of bbPress built-in?

    Did a clean install using BuddyPress

    13. Please provide a list of any errors in your server’s log files.

    OKay, so I have just uploaded everything, and yeah I have gotten excited and did not really check how the WordPress MU works before I uploaded BuddyPress and activate it. And I have created myself a new user, opened up a new blog which is http://ME.mydomain.com and it all went well, until I launched the link directly. It took me to NOT FOUND page from FireFox, not to http://mydomain.com/404 or something like that. What did I do wrong here?

    When I installed, I made sure that I chose http://USER.domain.com instead of http://domain.com/USER

    Can anyone please help?

    hi there

    First ,you are saying that it is a directory install ,which is not correct as you are mentioning that you made sure ,the blogs get address like user.yoursite.com [It is called subdomain style]

    Now for this to work, you need to configure your wildcard DNS and sub domains.

    If you on a capanel it is very easy.Login to cpanel,create a subdomain *,like say *.yoursite.com and go and check again ,the blog should be working now.

    Hope it helps.

    So I have to do this everytime a user signs up?

    I just want it to work like testbp.org

    no,just enable wildcard subdomain for one time.

    All the new and existing signups will work seamlessly.

    make sure you have at least one subdomain like *.yoursite.com

    Ok, it looks like it’s working after I did http://kb.siteground.com/article/How_to_enable_wildcard_subdomains.html

    But then I now have a small issue. When I type in some random subdomain.mydomain.com it’s taking me to http://mydomain.com/wp-signup.php?new=subdomain but all blank!

    What kind of a configuration did I miss? Also, I really have no idea hopw the bbForum works, I click on the “forum” and just can’t find a link to open up a new forum :P

    Thanks a lot Brajesh! However, can you tell me how to uninstall the forum I have installed using BuddyPress and do a clean bbForum install and integrate them?

    Also, one more big question

    Let’s say I have a cPanel account, and have ability to Add On Domains. Say, I want my to install something like Joomla in my /public_html and then add a domain.com which means I also will have domain.com folder inside /public_html right? Can I install BuddyPress that way? Will it work just fine?

    hi there

    well,so your subdomain style issue is solved.

    For the random non existing subdomain behavior is expected by wpmu.since you are using buddypress default theme ,so you will not be able to see wp-signup.php and it is one of the most discussed topic here in forum.just search it.

    If you are trying to create forums (as you may be thinking of standalone forum in bbpress),this is not implemented in that way in buddypress.In buddypress ,the bbpress (internal integration) is used for creating forums with groups and they do not have a separate admin.You can enable forum from group admin screen for a particular group.

    As far as I know and my experiences with shared hosting,you won’t be able to install wordpress mu on addon domains.If you are able to install wpmu on addon domain ,then buddypress should work without any problem.

    Yup, it is resolved with your great help. Thanks a lot. I will try to install WPMU on Add On’ed domain and see how it goes :P Also, is BuddyPress.org using their BuddyPress or just a WordPress? Because this Theme is… Something beautiful :D

    hehe.. you are most welcome :)

    Yeh buddypress.org is using buddypress but the theme is a custom theme which is not available freely :) ,so you may have to wait until Andy decides to make this theme available for everyone.but I don’t think so,as He will like to keep the look of this site unique :)

    Ohh man! ^.^ this theme really kicks ass right? Snap, I’m gonna try to clone this :P
