How to fix DNS issue on subdomain blogs in WPMU (Especially in cpanel) - Without using Wildcard DNS

Hello Everyone,

If you are getting a DNS issue even after adding a wildcard DNS to your domain, Please follow the below steps to fix the problem. (I have tested it and it works fine)

The below steps will help you to add a wildcard redirect to your site, if you do not want to mess up with, or are not comfortable with DNS zone editor

Simply Do the below:

Go to cpanel >> Subdomains.
Add a subdomain called *.yourwpmudomain.com
Change the document root of the subdomain to the document root of yourwpmudomain.com

That will redirect all your subdomain requests to yourwpmudomain.com and you will no longer face the DNS issues :slight_smile:

I just resolved a thread pending for a long time by this approach.
