[resolved] [closed] Can I not use multisite with subdirectories? (6 posts)

    Hi all, I currently run http://utilitiessavings.co.uk/ and use the blog engine as our utilities news page. But we are at the point now where we would like a blog as well, so multi-site seems perfect. However I do not want to use subdomains and my wordpress has been installed for quite a few months now:

    You cannot choose sub-directory Install in the following cases:
    If your existing WordPress installation has been set up for more than a month, due to issues with existing permalinks. (This problem will be fixed in a future version.)

    Does this mean my current wordpress installation? Or does it mean if i upgraded to WP3 over a month ago?

    If so I guess I will have to wait for the update :(

    I thought about making the utilities news page only show posts from a certain category, and making a blog page that only shows posts from the other categories - maybe this would be a simpler solution?

    Any help is very much appreciated. (BTW, I will upgrade when I decide to go multisite)

    this only applies if you have been on 3.x.x for more than 30 days

    since you are on 2.9.2 this is not an issue

    Ah thanks a lot! I shall give it a bash! Maybe change the wording unless I'm the only one confused by it! :S

    I created a new multisite with subdirectories manually because I had uploaded already all my pages and I couldnt select subdirectories.
    I was using a simple custom permalinks structure in my localhost site ( /name ) Unfortunately I am not very experienced. I imported my pages from localhost. Everything worked except for one "little" problem. If I click on the site name of e.g. site2 I am getting the message "Directory has no index file", but when I call my startpage in site2 its fine. What did I wrong? Must I install WP also in the subdirectories?

    Thanks for any hints!!
