    HI ... I have a single blog running on 2.9.2
    Is it possible to upgrade it to 3.0 with multisite option ?
    If yes pls point me to the documentation for doing the same without loosing the existing content. Thnx :-)

  2. Well, upgrade to 3.0 first.

    Ask your webhost if they support wildcard subdomains if you want subdomains. Tell them you'll be enabling the network in case they don;t support it.

    Then do this:

    Thanks but the problem now is that there is no option for subdirectory install if one is updating an existing individual blog to multisite.
    In create network ... it says "Sub-domain Install Because your install is not new, the sites in your WordPress network must use sub-domains. The main site in a sub-directory install will need to use a modified permalink structure, potentially breaking existing links."

    But I want sub-directory option. What can I do ?

  4. You can force it, which may or may not be a good idea.

    Then you can choose to have all your main blog's permalinks change, or use a plugin to remove the /blog/ which as stated in another thread may cause conflicts if someone names a blog the same as one of your pages. ;)
