Change main site with a sub-domain in multisite (4 posts)

    I converted by single-wordpress install to a multisite install and it set my original site to be the main one (example.com), but that's not what I want. I want my original site to be one of the sub-domains (originalsite.example.com). How do I move it to a sub domain so I can have a different site as the main page?

    I found this, but it's not explicit how the OP was able to fix the problem.

    In what ways do I need to edit the database? Or is there now a more elegant way to do this without having to edit the db?

    A second option would be to make new-sub.mysite.com, export all the posts from mysite.com into there, then wipe out mysite.com's posts and import all the ones from sub.mysite.com

    Thanks for the reply, tomontoast, but that isn't a great option for me because my theme is using the types plugin and when I export my wordpress and reimport, it breaks the theme pretty hard

  4. You can do that, but ... I don't know if it'll mess with that plugin.
