Domain Mapping & Multi Domain not working

I been trying to get this plug in working for a long time.

I have tried everything and I continue to get a status of "Invalid" It might be my DSN settings but I have tried every DSN setting from the documentation I tried to use the godaddy DSN and switch to Nameserver and use my cpanel DSN. Please help my brain is fried from trying to get this working.

Thank You,
Andrew

    Hello @Andrew

    Welcome to WPMU community!

    I hope you are well today and thanks for asking the question.

    Let me simplify the procedure.

    For example, your main site is network.com
    You have two subsites:
    1. one.network.com
    2. two.network.com
    These two subsites you want to map with following domains repectively:
    1. one.com
    2. two.com

    So, if anyone enter one.com in the browser, it should show the site of one.network.com. Same for two.com

    So, there are two scenarios now. Either you own all the domains, or you don't. First I think you own all the domains.

    network.com site is hosted in a hosting whose nameservers are:
    ns1.networkhost.com
    ns2.networkhost.com

    So, you have entered these nameservers for network.com domain panel. You have to set same nameservers for one.com and two.com domains too.

    Then you will add one.com and two.com domains as add on domain in the same hosting of network.com, and make sure you point them to the network.com wordpress root folder. So that if any one enter one.com or two.com it shows network.com site.

    After that, you will add the domains in corresponding subsites using domain panel plugin, and the mapped domain will start working.

    Now, if you don't own the domains, then you will need a dedicated IP. I know you won't have access to the domain panel of your customers so that you can't set name servers in there. So, you will pass them you IP and they need to set a DNS record for their domain and point to that IP. Only then domain panel will work.

    Almost same for multi domains, either host in your server as parked domain, or use dedicated IP.

    So, do you want to use nameserver or dedicated IP? Would you please share two domains - one for domain mapping and the other for multi domain?

    Cheers
    Ash
