Creating wildcard entries for Pro Sites sub-directory option

We are setting up a pro sites installation with Sub-Domains as the option of choice. I have created the wildcard “*” entry in my cpanel for the primary domain(under Advanced DNS Zone Editor) and have entered our domains IP.

We are also a host reseller, so we have also verified that our WHM shows a DNS wildcard entry as well.

We have been unable to get things working, so we also added a subdomain entry in cpanel for the wildcard. Our host stated that this should point to: /public_html , but things are still not working. We have tried creating test sites from the front end and from admin. No luck as of yet. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    No errors…the site appears under “SITES”, and all emails are sent for the new user to enable site. Links within email do not resolve to the site or the login.

    From within the admin dashboard, site dashboard link does not work or link to visit site. Only Edit appears to work, where tabs: info, users, themes, and settings exist.

    Here is my .htaccess settings. Looks a little strange to me at the moment.

    `

    RewriteEngine on

    # -FrontPage-

    IndexIgnore .htaccess */.??* *~ *# */HEADER* */README* */_vti*

    <Limit GET POST>

    order deny,allow

    deny from all

    allow from all

    </Limit>

    <Limit PUT DELETE>

    order deny,allow

    deny from all

    </Limit>

    Also, I involved my host company and they have been trying a few things. I recently noticed that my .htaccess file was changed to this (for testing I guess), but since I did not see a wp-content/blogs.php file on my server for this domain (maybe that’s my problem)…. I changed it back to our original .htaccess. Should I have a file called blogs.php?

    Here is what that looked like:

    `RewriteEngine On

    RewriteBase /

    #uploaded files

    RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/$ index.php [L]

    RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/(.*) wp-content/blogs.php?file=$2 [L]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d

    RewriteRule . – [L]

    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-.*) $2 [L]

    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*.php)$ $2 [L]

    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
