Am I in trouble? (7 posts)

    I have just updated my site to a multi site.

    My site is in a subdirectory (www.revyportalen.no/kultursommerleir.no)
    And I choosed to update to a multi site even though my site is older than 1 month.

    WordPress told me to use subdomains, this confused a bit since I thought (after another multi site installation) that multi site installations in sub directory had to use sub-directories for the network?

    Everything seems to work fine though.

    My question is this: Is there a risk for me to run into big or unsolvable problems in the future because of the way I've installed my network?

    Is there anything I should watch out for?

  2. Well that's a mess.

    What's the master domain? If the URL is kultursommerleir.no, you can do either one, but I'd suggest subfolders.

    The master domain is http://www.revyportalen.no.
    And under that I've created a folder called kultursommerleir.no which now is the "home" of my new network.

    Why is sub-folders the best choice? Is it possible to change from subdirectories to subfolders now after it's created?

    I'm positively surprised that everything actually works just fine though =)

    Do you get to kultursommerleir.no at http://www.revyportalen.no/kultursommerleir.no or http://kultursommerleir.no though, that's the question.

    If it's http://kultursommerleir.no then you're fine as is :) If it's http://www.revyportalen.no/kultursommerleir.no then you need to change it to subfolder as it won't work in the long run. Just go into the wp-config and change the subdomains line to false.

    Good question. The answer is both. I'm actually a bit confused about this, but I guess there's a forwarder or something like that that points the url http://kultursommerleir.no to http://www.revyportalen.no/kultursommerleir.no (cause that's where the files are in my folder structure).

    Whats weird is that when you use this link http://www.revyportalen.no/kultursommerleir.no you're sent to the sign-up page. But when you use http://kultursommerleir.no you're sent to the main page. (My hosting company set it up after my site crashed)

    So to sum things up: My folder structure on the server is: public_html --> http://www.revyportalen.no (also a multi site. This one is using subdomains). In a folder here is http://www.kultursommerleir.no.

    Should I change to subfolders?

    Thanks a lot for all the help =)

  7. Okay.

    ONLY use http://kultursommerleir.no -- That'll make your life easier.

    And yes, I would switch to subFOLDERS for that site unless you're fantastic at DNS.
