Park your domain on media temple (mt)

I signed up for Media Tem­ple host­ing with a cou­ple of domains I own. I wanted to park the .com to the .net. Here’s how I did it.

all my files were setup on the .net pri­mary domain
1. I had my sec­ondary domain I wanted to park pointed to Media Tem­ple DNS servers
2. I went to the BASH shell to cre­ate sym­links and set this up.
3. Things need to be replaced by your own account set­tings.
4. Make sure you don’t have any files on the par­tic­u­lar server when you do rm –rF on it
