Subdomain Installation - subdomain.domain.org (5 posts)

    I'm trying to migrate my (seldom-used) blog from MT to WP before I head back to school. With MT I had my blog at username.domain.org instead of http://www.domain.org/username (using .htaccess) but I can't quite figure out how to config WP to work the same way.

    Tips?

    Thanks folks!

  2. Well, is your subdomain mirroring a domain or is it a fully-hosted (self-contained) domain?

    If it's mirroring, setup WP however you'd like, and re-wire the subdomain.

    If it's fully-hosted (self-contained), then just drop all of the WP files into the root (/) directory, as if your root directory was the "wordpress" folder.

    My blog is in a subdomain - blog.nuclearmoose.ca, and when the subdomain was created, it shows up as a folder off of the root of nuclearmoose.ca. I just dumped the WP into that folder, and set the proper URLs in the OPTIONS panel and bob's-your-uncle, I was in business.

    One more quickie...if I wanted to setup multiple other blogs for other authors, I do the same in each user dir and use the same database, modifying the table_prefix value?

    Thanks for the super-quick help.

    Yes, ensure that you have unique table_prefix values and you can install blogs until the cow moose come home.
