I have been trying to get this to work for hours. I have a WordPress multisite hosted on a shared server - but with a dedicated IP address for my WP installation, and my client sites are set up as subdomains inside of the WordPress network.
So a client might have a WordPress site called
I want to use AWS Route 53 as the DNS service, and I want the client's own domain name to map to
In Route 53, I set up a CNAME that maps
I also set up an S3 bucket named
theclient.com and statically redirected that to
OK, at this point inside of Route 53 both
theclient.com should end up redirecting to
The problem is that when I put either site into my browser (after flushing DNS, clearing history, trying different computers, etc) I always land on my hosting account "default cgi" page that says "sorry..."
Any insight as to what might be going on, would be appreciated.
