Domain Mapping Options doesn't appear


I just installed the Domaing Mapping Plugin on a MultiSite environment, but when I want to map my Domains, the options Domain Mapping on my Tools doesn't appear. This is on my local machine.
What I'm doing wrong?

      I had this problem as well. I installed it through the WPMU Dashboard and it didn't take.

      What I did was uninstall it completely and delete it. Then I uploaded it through FTP and moved the sunrise.php file. After that I went into WordPress and activated it. After that, that part worked as it should.

      This is something that happens with some plugins that require files outside of their /plugins/ folder. I'd run into it before but it's not common so I didn't realize it. Basically, the plugin needs access to the sunrise.php file on first run and since it's not where it is expected it can't work. That's my guess anyway.

    Hey there, Lucas!

    I think Delerium is actually spot on here, I think you may need to move your sunrise.php file from the plugin folder to the root of wp-content, and that's why this isn't working for you yet.

    Have you read through all the steps in the usage guide? It's really helpful here, I know it helped me a lot when I was still new around here and setting up Domain Mapping for the first time. : )

    Thanks for your question!

    Michelle / Delirium,

    Thanks a lot for posting my question.
    I had resolved my problem, but there is not a configuration mistake, the "Domain Mapping" option shows only on my sites that are "Mapped" with a Pro Sites (plugin) Level .

    Kind Regards
