    Hello,
    currently I'm having 4 wordpress installation in these domains:

    domain.com --> as a landing page
    domain.com/wp1
    domain.com/wp2
    domain.com/wp3

    can I convert/merge these scenario into a single wordpress multisite?

    Yes, you can easily do that. If you want to retain this URL structure, choose the subdirectory install option, not subdomain (while allows e.g wp1.domain.com etc).

  3. Easiest way is to do this:

    1) Turn domain.com into a subfolder multisite
    2) Create 3 subsites with temporary names (I would use ones the same character length as your current folders, so if it's really wp1, wp2, and wp3, then create the temp ones as tp1, tp2, and tp3).
    3) Export from wp1 into tp1 and so on.
    4) Customize them to look right.
    5) BACKUP all the wpx folders and then... delete the folders from your server.
    6) Rename tp1 etc to wp1
    7) Beer.

    You may need to run a search in your database tables for wp_x_posts for domain.com/tp1 and replace with domain.com/wp1 (yes, include the URL like I did, it's a better search pattern).
