converting existing site into multi-site?

  • mjgraves

    @mjgraves

    Some of the tutorials that I’ve read on multi-site suggest that it should only be used on a new instance of WordPress. I have a 3 year old blog that I’d like to convert to multi-site. The existing site will remain the main site, but others will be added.

    Can I create a new instance WP, configure for multi-site, then import the existing site using the XML import feature?

    What are my options? What are the gotchas?

    You can enable the feature on older blogs, yes.

    there are some gotchas. what did you want – subdomains or subfolders?

    Not sure if I care really. I host on a private VPS so I have control of the Apache server and my own domains. I suspect that sub-domains is nicer, that is more elegant. Given a choice which is preferred?

    your choice, really. I prefer subdomains myself. Also, you won’t have to kludge around with the /blog permalink issue off the main blog if you use subdomains. 😀 (unless you wanted it there)
