I enabled the MultiSite option using the instructions on the WordPress site (
`mandeltech.com), and now I am trying to create a subsdomain for WooCommerce (shop.mandeltech.com`). I created the subdomain with cPanel, and then added it to my site through My Sites --> Network Admin --> Sites --> Add Site menu. All of the settings worked, except I can't access the dashboard.
Using the dashboard link from the My Sites menu, I go to
http://shop.mandeltech.com/wp-admin/. This gives me a 404 Error, because that page does not exist. Through the cPanel file manager, the
shop directory under
public_html only has a
cgi-bin folder. This makes sense, as I haven't specifically added anything.
However, I'm not sure where to go from here. I want both
mandeltech.com to share the same WP installation and database, but I can't access the WP-Admin page yet. Do I have to install WordPress for this subdirectory? This would create another installation, so it doesn't seem like the correct way to go. So, how can I allow this subdomain to have the same WP installation but also access its dashboard?
