    Hi all,
    Been trying to find an answer, and its a bit confusing with regards to the word 'subdomain'. as it can mean either:

    a) xxx.domain.com
    b) domain.com/xxx

    Well I have 3 sub domains:
    mobile.domain.com
    preview.domain.com
    domain.com

    domain.com is located in /
    mobile.domain.com is located in /mobile
    preview.domain.com is located / preview

    how does one go and change the individuals into one multi site?

    I've gone and made it so the domain.com is the main network site.

    b) domain.com/xxx

    That's not a sub-domain - that's a sub-directory.

    slap on head. you're right!

    so the 3 sub-domains I have are in 3 separate sub-directories!

    how does that work with multi?
    it seems that there are no actually sub-directories created, and that all separate sites are just different tables in a database?

    is that correct?

    If you're asking about how multisite works, you should post on the forum for multisite:

    But you might want to start with these:
