View Full Version : second domain still points to first domain

I still don't know what I'm doing wrong here,

I want to start a music blog using Wordpress, so I set that up.
http://www.toxco.net/wordpress or http://toxco.net/wordpress

My main site that I registered with is toxco.net. It's just used as an e-mail server.

I added my 2nd domain which is dancetodisco.com and set the custom web directory like the video said, to /var/www/html/wordpress.

Unfortunately, it goes to toxco.net, and it doesn't even mask it. I want to be able to type dancetodisco and have it pull up the wordpress site.

For dancetodisco.com I used godaddy and I set the DNS servers to exactly what I had for toxco.

I did this on Monday.

What if anything is in /var/www/html directory? Is there by chance a .htaccess file there. Did you install Wordpress manually or through the Site Manager. If the second then it is configured for your maindomain only and that could be the problem.

Thanks wildjokerdesign.

Yeah i installed it through Site Manager.

So do I just edit the .htaccess file?

Have you logged into the Admin section of Wordpress yet? You would need to change the setting via that Admin section.

Also you did not say if there was any .htaccess file in /var/www/html.

Have you contacted WH about this yet? Since they have access to your account they may be able to see something that is not set up correctly.

Thanks wild, that was it. Sorry for not getting back faster, I was away for the weekend.

My wordpress blog is now up and running! Swweeet...
