When i try to access my domain mapping page it asks me to move the line define('sunrise', 'on') above the last require_once line in the wp-config file. It is already above this line. I tried moving it higher and even to the top of the file(below the opening

I recognizes if i remove the line alltogether (asks me to uncomment the line or add it if it is missing) so I know It is not looking at some other file. What could cause this behavior?

Just a quick guess - it's not already defined to not 'on' somewhere else? – hakre Nov 10 '10 at 17:16
@lathomas64 please post your config file (without your database connection info!!!) to a pastebin so we can double check. – EAMann Nov 10 '10 at 18:24

Of what is that $base = '/'; left over? – hakre Nov 12 '10 at 0:45

Apparantly this happens with the newer version of domain mapping because sunrise.php itself needs to be updated. To solve it I:

Copy the new sunrise.php file from wp-content/plugins/wordpress-mu-domain-mapping/sunrise.php to wp-content/sunrise.php and you'll be fine.

And it works now.

Fantastic! I'm deleting my incorrect answer and hoping more people upvote yours. Make sure to mark it as the correct answer once you can. – EAMann Nov 12 '10 at 2:42
