Integrating with existing site- Sub directory issues (3 posts)

    Hi. I'm new to WordPress.

    I want to install a wp multi site to my existing site(existing site is not wordpress). I would like each blog on the site to be shown as examplesite/blog_name.
    But if I install wpmu in a subdirectory say, Blogs It will look like examplesite/Blogs/blog_name.

    So I have to install WPMU in the root. But I'm afraid if that will affect the existing site.
    I've been trying to find a solution for the last 2 weeks.
    I dont want to remove the existing site from the root. At the same time I want each blog of the multisite to be in the first level of sub-directory and not the second level).
    Looking forward to your suggestions.

    Hi,

    It can be possible if the current site doesn't use index.php and the file names don't conflict between the 2 installations.

    Thanks Pranav.

    Yes I know it can be done if there is no conflict between the files. But there is already an existing index.php file.

    What is your suggestion to get examplesite/blog_name..

    I somehow have to get this done but not able to find out how.

    Your help is appreciated.

    Thanks
