Domain mapping with sub-directory install (3 posts)

    Hi,

    I'm using WordPress purely as a blog. The client has one existing site (site1.com) and is expanding into a new English speaking country (site2.com). The client wants to be able to broadcast manage posts on both sites through one login.

    site1.com has an existing WP sub-directory install (site1.com/kblog) and site2.com can start from scratch.

    I've finally managed to set up Multisite so that I have site1.com/kblog and site1.com/kblog/nl running and the site1.com/kblog login can broadcast posts to site1.com/kblog/nl.

    Lastly, I need site2.com/kblog to point to site1.com/kblog/nl. I came across http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-mu-domain-mapping but apparently I can't use it with a sub-directory install.

    Is domain mapping possible with a sub-directory install, and if yes how?

    Thanks a lot.

    I've read a few comments in this forum that domain mapping should be possible with both sub-domain and sub-folder installs.

    When I'm going to "Settings" => "Domain Mapping" I get "Warning! This plugin will only work if WordPress is installed in the root directory of your webserver. It is currently installed in ’/kblog/’."

    I'm using WP 3.5, MU Multi-Site 0.0.7 and WordPress MU Domain Mapping 0.5.4.2.

  3. Right, you have to move the install to site1.com
