Access WordPress Multisite using an IP address
IMPORTANT: WordPress Multisite requires that you use different domain names for each site. In order to make it work, we configure a transparent xip.io domain to the current IP address. Without this, you may get a “Cookies are blocked or not supported by your browser. You must enable cookies to use WordPress” error message. In any case, it is highly advisable to use domain names instead of IP addresses when connecting to the application through a browser. Learn how to configure WordPress Multisite domains.
WordPress Multisite needs to configure a domain to work properly. Bitnami WordPress Multisite stack is configured to be accessible using an IP address. In order to make it work, we have associated a transparent xip.io domain to the current IP address.
If you are using an IP address to access to your stack, and you get into trouble, check if ‘xip.io’ is alive; if the site is down, you must configure a domain as explained in the corresponding section.
