Have main site in sub directory

  • Are you able to install WordPress at the root of your site, rather than in a sub-directory? That would certainly remove the “/blogs” directory from your URL’s.

    I’m not able to no I have an existing site there.

    I actaully want to keep the blogs directory, I have an existing site and I’m adding a new blogs area to it. Then what I want is a sub directory for each blog, such as:

    http://www.mysite.com/blogs/cancerblog
    http://www.mysite.com/blogs/aidsblog
    http://www.mysite.com/blogs/transplantblog

    etc

    I don’t believe you can successfully serve WordPress files from root while giving WordPress its own directory, if you already have a site located in root. Don’t hold me to it, but I’m not positive that would work out. Have you given any consideration to installing WordPress on a sub-domain as an alternative? Example:

    awareness.yoursite.com – or – appropriate_name.yoursite.com

    That way, your blog sites in sub-directories would look like:

    awareness.yoursite.com/cancerblog
    awareness.yoursite.com/aidsblog – etc…

    [edit] I’m not sure if this will be of any assistance or not, but take a look at the Create A Network documentation in the Codex and see if it sparks any ideas. I’m not very well acquainted with the details of what can and can’t be done with a network setup, so there may be some options there I haven’t mentioned.

    You are correct. You can not have WP act as if it was in root without it actually … acting like it’s in root 😉
