Domain mapping. Can someone help to clear this?
domain mapping

Msg#: 4272625 posted 11:20 pm on Feb 25, 2011 (gmt 0)


I've been researching a lot into domain mapping but couldn't come to a conclusive answer.

My WP site is using the wordpress mobile pack. I'd like to use m.mydomain.com to show the mobile theme.

The plugin is quite vague and states that the domain mapping should be configured, DNS and all.

I set up m.mydomain.com IN CNAME mydomain.com

After allowing it proper time, when I access m.mydomain.com I get a 'There is no website configured at this site' message (I'm on hostmonster)

When contacting support, they are confusing this with creating a subdomain.

My question is, how to go about configuring this? Maybe I should point the CNAME to the actual IP address?

Appreciate your help in advance.

m.example.com IS a sub-domain.

There are two parts to this:
- setting DNS so that "m." requests resolve to your server
- configuring the server so that "m." requests resolve to the folder where the WP scripts reside.

Thanks a ton. yes, I had to create a sub domain to get it working.
