    How do you set up Wordpress Multisite using TLDs? Is that possible with Plesk re domain mapping and I don't want to use any plugins.

    Hi Francisco,

    I was hoping to set up Wordpress Multisite using TLDs instead of sub-domains so that I can create some one page websites, ideally without using a plugin. But I'd settle for using Sub-domains if that is doable? My hosting company doesn't allow you to create wildcard sub-domains so I'm a bit snookered right now. Any help appreciated. 

    Thanks

    Mark

    Hi mark

    The TLD is described in this article (sub-directories are used).

    I've also prepared a list of useful links for you:

    I have followed all the steps in order to make a multisite. The installation works fine and the multisite options are all presented to me. In the DNS i've added a wildcard symbol. That works as well. However when i try to access the dashboard after creating a brand new site on the sub-domain it gives me an error:

    ---------------------

    Not Found

    The requested URL /wp-admin/ was not found on this server.

    ---------------------

    The front-end loads the web servers Default Page. 
    I've tried Both NginX and apache way. Same outcome. 

    I dont understand what im doing wrong. Can you help me?

    Such behavior is to be investigated.

    After following this guide and at the point where I add a new site, I get:

    The link you followed has expired.

    This has also been documented by another WordPress user here:

    https://wordpress.org/support/topic/default-multisite-install-the-link-you-followed-has-expired

    The standard advice of upping maximum execution time and upload and post maximum sizes littered all over the internet doesn't work.

    I followed all the steps to convert single to multisites subdirectory option. However, once I re-login to wordpress a message pops up saying database need to repair. I follow the steps again to repair it, but still some database problems could not be repaired. Below are the message list of table doesn't exist.

    KHOuJ_1_posts: Table 'wp_mmf.KHOuJ_1_posts' doesn't exist
    KHOuJ_1_comments: Table 'wp_mmf.KHOuJ_1_comments' doesn't exist
    KHOuJ_1_links: Table 'wp_mmf.KHOuJ_1_links' doesn't exist
    KHOuJ_1_options: Table 'wp_mmf.KHOuJ_1_options' doesn't exist
    KHOuJ_1_postmeta: Table 'wp_mmf.KHOuJ_1_postmeta' doesn't exist
    KHOuJ_1_terms: Table 'wp_mmf.KHOuJ_1_terms' doesn't exist
    KHOuJ_1_term_taxonomy: Table 'wp_mmf.KHOuJ_1_term_taxonomy' doesn't exist
    KHOuJ_1_term_relationships: Table 'wp_mmf.KHOuJ_1_term_relationships' doesn't exist
    KHOuJ_1_termmeta: Table 'wp_mmf.KHOuJ_1_termmeta' doesn't exist
    KHOuJ_1_commentmeta: Table 'wp_mmf.KHOuJ_1_commentmeta' doesn't exist

    May I know how can I fix this? Is there any steps I missed out?
