Adding Multisite to a preexisting, non-wordpress website (2 posts)

    I have a current website (www.mywebsite.com) and I'm interested in having several customer specific sites: customer1.mywebsite.com; customer2.mywebsite.com that each have a series of CMS capable features.

    If I install WP to a subdomain (wp.mywebsite.com), it seems like I am forced to use sub-subdomains (customer1.wp.mywebsite.com).

    If I install WP to a subdirectory, it seems like I can't have subdomains setup.

    If Install over my root, it deletes my website.

    Is there a solution that would allow me to do:

    http://www.mywebsite.com - > my preexisting website
    customer1.mywebsite.com -> customer1's cms
    customer2.mywebsite.com -> customer2's cms
    I don't have a preference where the root WP instance's URL is located.

    Hosting on iis7



  2. Is mywebsite.com WP?

    If you want customer1.domain.com, you have to install at domain.com. That's just how it works.
