Ok, so I’ve installed DomainMapping on GreenActionNews.net.
I have a site called Strivin2BeGreen which currently is at GreenActionNews.net/strivin2begreen. I’m assuming what domain mapping will do, is that if someone goes to strivin2bgreen.com, then they will end up going to greenactionnews.net/strivin2begreen but they will experience it as if it is its own web site.
So once I’ve dl and installed it, I see some instructions. One of which is that I need a dedicated IP. I checked with the server and they said my dedicated IP is 188.8.131.52 When I go there directly by browser, nothing shows up but a splash page. Your instructions says
when you enter the IP you see your multisite. This is known as the DocumentRoot for the IP, your host will be able to sort this quickly and easily.
1. Is the 184.108.40.206 the one I am supposed to use in step 1 of the DomainMaping instructions? Or something different? Is it going to cost me more if different? Or is it just impossible to do with my particular hosting company (they are not too helpful with anything like this in the past).
2. I have the domain strivin2begreen registered with a different registrar than the one my sites are hosted at, to save on costs. I am aware that I can change the NS to my hosted account, but will having the registration elsewhere created problems with setting up domain mapping?
I have not moved sunrise.php or made anychanges to the wp-config.php file yet (which I really hate doing coding stuff as it is nerve-wrecking).
So those are my questions for now, and am I on the right track with this?
