Installed Multi-Domain - Missing or invalid site address.

Hi There,

Could you please help us, we have installed multi-domains. Added a sub domain and another domain. When we try to 'add new site' to these domains, we get this error 'Missing or invalid site address'. Can you assist?

    Hi Ari,

    Thank you for your response,

    We added (changed the dns records on their server -- but no wildcard)

    We also added for testing purposes.

    How do we add wildcard subdomains - We are working on cpanel.

    This domain: points to this IP:
    Subdomains of that point to this IP:
    so naturally subdomains don't work as they point to a completely different server and not your site's server.
    You will need to do this from both your cpanel AND your domain registrar.

    On your domain registrar, add an A DNS entry like this:
    * and point it to your site's IP.
    On your cPanel, go to domains and add a wildcard subdomain, pointing it to the directory where your main site is installed.

    I hope that helps!
