Error message: Setting up Wordpress subdomains

Hi, I just signed up tonight and was following the instructionst at

    Hey Kimberly,

    Welcome to the WPMU DEV community!

    Did you just recently setup the wildcard subdomain? If this is the case, then it can sometimes take a little bit for it to propagate. When you create the test site does it add it to your list of sites in the network admin?

    If you can post a link to the newly created sub-site then we can test it out :slight_smile:

    Hope that helps! Keep us updated here and let us know if you have any further questions.

    Installing the wordpress is something I've done many times but this multi sites is proving to be a real challenge.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
