This is my first Multisite install on a VPS.

At the domain registrar I have set the * and WWW A records of to point to the IP address of

In your plugin I have tried to map to the site but the plugin automatically adds folder directory to the mapping so it shows mapped to

    Hi there and welcome to the WPMUdev Support Community!

    Wow! Brave! First multisite installation and you choose the option that's only days old and therefore has the fewest amount of people with experience. Nice!

    First off, I don't think you need the * anywhere. I believe this only pertains to subdomains, and you have subdirectories. Also, in what you outlined above, the * wildcard subdomain would be done on wphostengine, not Wphostengine is the server that houses your files and database.

    As far as removing the install directory, I'm not sure that it can be done, but I think it is part of the recent 3.5 update. I just don't have any specifics and there is little literature available on it yet.

    Let's keep in touch on this.
