[resolved] Migrating WordPress to Multisite but my original site was a subdomain (6 posts)

    I have just upgraded my wordpress site to a multisite installation but my original site was already a subdomain. This means that if I now try and create a new site its a sub sub domain. ie cubs.1stgthorkesley.com was my original site and now I have upgraded it appears that any site I want to create will be x.cubs.1stgthorkesley.com, but what I actually want is x.1stgthorkesley.com

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks

  2. You have to install in 1stgthorkesley.com for that to work.

    Or you can TRY to map the subdomains. I don't know if it'll work. You would want to make your site a subfolder network and then map x.1stgthorkesley.com to existingsub.1stgthorkesley.com/x

    Ipstenu, thanks for the reply. Do i need to uninstall my cubs.1stgthorkelsy.co.uk, install 1stgthorkelsy.co.uk and then install the cubs again, or is there a better way as I dont think that mapping will be very tidy and could cause problems in the future.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the link....it certainly looks like ive got some work ahead of me. As I dont actually have more than one site yet, can I not just backup, delete the site, create the new site without the subdomain, then restore the backup?

    sorry if this is a newbie question....

    ok, found a way around it ! I created the new site, downloaded http://interconnectit.com/products/search-and-replace-for-wordpress-databases/ and then renamed the newly created site to what I wanted it to be. Hey Presto ! So far no problems. Can anyone think of anything I might trip up on that I have yet to find?

    Thanks
