    Hello WP,

    I have enable Multisite feature on my main site example.com.

    My main site is under:
    public_html
    -
    -
    -
    +example.com

    So the question is:

    Should I create and install Sub-Domain under:
    public_html
    or
    +example.com

    Chao.

  2. public_html.

    Because that is likely where your host has pointed the wildcards IF they support them. Did you ask them?

    Thanks Andrea,

    No they do not support wild Card, But they do support sub-domains.
    You have to first manually create a sub-domain in C-Panel of the host account.

    Do you think Word Press MS has to be used in this scenario and what are your views now..

  4. You'll run into issues as you can't tell the manual subdomain to go look in an alternate folder. It makes a physical folder on your server.

    Just pick subfolders then.

    Thanks Andrea for the valuable suggestions and help.

    I will stick to your expert opinion and shift to either subfolders or else forget about the money paid and choose another hosting.

    Now I have Two more questions keeping in view the above scenario.

    If I choose Subfolder:

    1:
    example.com/site1
    Should I put site1 under
    public_html
    or
    example.com

    2:
    Do I need to install wordpress on site1 as well.

    Chao.

  6. 1 - site 1 *is* example.com. Whern you enable the network, that is site 1. Site 2 will be example.com/site2.

    2. no, that;s the whole point - to have one codebase, ne install and many sites.
