How to Install Domain Mapping Plugin and setup in wordpress MULTISITE?

We already discussed about how to enable your existing multisite into wordpress multisite, here we are going to discuss about that domain mapping plugin.

What this plugin does?

This plugin will help to map your domain to another domain easily in wordpress multisite. This plugin requires some manual installation and easy to follow.

Installation and setup

1. First, Login to you wordpress dashboard. In top right side click “network admin”

Go to settings-> Plugins->add new and search for the domain mapping plugin and install the plugin to your website.

2.  Now go to wp-content->plugins->domainmapping and inside there you can a file named sunrise.php and Move the sunrise.php to wp-content folder.

So, it should be moved from wp-content/plugins/domainmapping/sunrise.php to wp-content/sunrise.php

3.  Add the below line in wp-conifig.php

define( 'SUNRISE', 'on' );

After you done the above three steps, you will see the below screen:

Domain Mapping plugin


See the Domain mapping option is available under network setup.


4. Go to settings-> click Domain Mapping. Here enter your Server IP address of your website.

You can use either the Server IP or Server CName of A record.

5. You will see the five options:

a) Remote login.

b) Permanent redirect (better for your blogger’s pagerank)

c) User domain mapping page

d) Redirect administration pages to site’s original domain (remote login disabled if this redirect is disabled)

e) Disable primary domain check. Sites will not redirect to one domain name. May cause duplicate content issues.

Multisite Plugin

If you are confusing with the above settings and configuration, then Just tick mark the a), e) .. which  is recommended.


Don’t you have time to see these settings and confused, then I recommend to use this Professional domain mapping plugin with screenshot. You can get this professional domain mapping ebook here. In next post, we will discuss about how to map a domain and create a new site in multisite?
