Some questions regarding the Domain Mapping plugin I've just installed.
Hosting: VPS with cpanel
WP Multisite 3.9.1 - subdomain config.
Domain Mapping 126.96.36.199
No other WPMU plugins installed
My main domain: losnuevosartesanos.com
Purpose of use for a subsite of my network: charoiglesias.losnuevosartesanos.com
This subsite should look like: http://www.charoiglesias.com thanks to Domain mapping plugin. The domain has been purchased independently, the registar is nominalia.com
I am following the following instructions for install and setup: https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/domain-mapping/#usage
1. Getting set up
Server IP address: 188.8.131.52 (this a fixed IP)
Administration mapping: domain entered by the user
Login mapping: domain entered by the user
I am not using reseller options
Once I've done all this part, in WP my Network admin>settings>domain-mapping, the following message appears:
"You run an old version of sunrise.php in wp-content, please move the most recent one located in wp-content/plugins/domain-mapping"
2. Domain Mapping
In my subsite charoiglesias.losnuevosartesanos.com>tools>Domain mapping:
When trying to map the domain charoiglesias.com I've got the following message (I expected that no to be so simple :wink:)
3. A Record and CNAME
> Here I am totally lost.
In this part of the Tutorial "first we will handle a CNAME..." Here should I do that from my VPS (run cPanel and my WP install) or through the Domain Registar (Nominalia using its own panel with very few DNS options see image attached:
(attach image nominalia DNS management)
> CNAME and A record
"CNAMEs are used for sub domain mapping. i.e. you want to map blog.userdomain.com to usersite.yourdomain.com"
Do I need to set a CNAME given that I want to map a Top level Domain (www.charoiglesias.com) to a subdomain-subsite in my wp network (charoiglesias.losnuevosartesanos.com)
So here I understand the A Record ("A Records are for mapping TLDs aka Top Level Domains. i.e. userdomain.com mapped into usersite.yourdomain.com").
Do I set both CNAME and A record or only A record in my situation?
Supposing I only have to set/configure the A Record, we are talking of doing it from my customer domain config panel (charoiglesias.com), right?
Thank you in advance for your quick answer,
