The website I was happy with I turned it succesfully to a multisite environment, we are talking about grootgroningen.com. Now I build my second website http://dekrantnieuws.grootgroningen.com and it is ready for release to the public.
I have installed the plugin wpmudev domain mapping, repositioned the sunrise.php and setup the plugin in the networkmanagement-area of my wordpress environment. I entered the ip-adres of my VPS. This VPS hosts about 10 websites, which are all mine.
I went to my domain-provider and changed the DNS (a-record)to the ip-adres of my VPS-server. The TTL of this domain was and is 4 hours. I changed the DNS 8 hours ago and when I ping to this domain, it shows the ip-adres of my VPS.
Next I go http://dekrantnieuws.grootgroningen.com/wp-admin and try to add the domain http://www.dekrantnieuws.nl into the domain mapping plugin and it gives me the following error: Domain name is unavailable to access I can read in the description that i can take up to 72 hours, but since the TTL is just 4 hours (the domain exists for a long time, so it is not new) it should work now after about 8 hours.
Am i to impatient?
Do I need a unique domain-name for every subsite of a multisite environment?
What am I missing, what do I need to double check?
I am using the latest version of wordpress 4.5.3
