    Hi,
    I install WP MU at a subdirecoty, so my main website URL will be domain.com/sub/ . When I try to creat a site with URL: domain.com/sub2/, it seems not to work. Do you have any idea?
    Many thanks in advance,

    WP MS doesn't work in subdirectory installs. It's something that's in development for the new v3.4 (http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/19796). v3.4 should be out soonish (look at the schedule - http://wpdevel.wordpress.com/version-3-4-project-schedule/).

    @emke it works in my case. (Buddpress, bbpress installed). I install WP MS at domain.com/sub/ and I am able to creat a new site with url: domain.com/sub/sub2/ but something was wrong if I tried to change the url to domain.com/sub2/

  4. To clarify, WordPress Multisite WORKS on a subdomain install, but you MUST run it out of the same folder it's in.

    So if you have it in domain.com/sub/ then ALL your subsites will be domain.com/sub/sub2

    THAT you cannot change.

    hmm, bad news, we can use MP MS on separate domains, separate sub-domains, but can not on separate directories. Do you think we should change this in the future? I am not a wordpress expert but I think this does not really harm anything. Please correct me if I am wrong.

  6. You can have separate directories.

    You can have WordPress in domain.com/ and then the sites are domain.com/sub and domain.com/sub2 and so on.

    You just can't have it run out of a different ROOT folder. Yet. This is being actively worked on :) It's much more complex than it seems. Signs are good that 3.4 MIGHT have this ability.

    been testing out WP MU 3.4 beta today, it seems not to change. Could I creat a ticket to report this? I concern about this because I have my website installed on subdirectory and now activate WP-MS. I want my child sites to be on the root. I think when WP-MS become more popular, many people will have the same problem.

  8. Trac ticket already exists: http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/19796

    Someone got it working on his site locally (we were, literally, just talking about this yesterday ;) ). I've not yet tried. That said, it looks like it was punted from 3.4 :(

    What about in a sub domain? i.e. install Multisite in a subdomain.

    Can I set up a subdomain that is something like multisite.example.com where WordPress will be installed and then which will create multisites such as site1.multisite.example.com or even multisite.example.com/site1?

    Then have those multisite installations map to example.com/site1, example.com/site2 using the domain mapping plugin?

    Yes you can do that out of the box (provided your server supports nested subdomains).

    Then have those multisite installations map to example.com/site1, example.com/site2 using the domain mapping plugin?

    No, because that's not how mapping works on Webservers (that's not a WP issue, but a web server one). You can't really map to a subfolder like that, unless the PHYSICAL folder is the root of your install (which is why add-on domains work).
