    i have an old wordpress site, and i want to create a MultiSite Network using sub-directory

    But I am having this problem

    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.

    See: http://codex.wordpress.org/Before_You_Create_A_Network#WordPress_Settings_Requirements

    You cannot choose Sub-directory Install (for a path-based network) if your existing WordPress installation has been set up for more than a month, due to issues with existing permalinks. (This problem will be fixed in a future version.)

  3. But also read http://codex.wordpress.org/Multisite_Network_Administration#Switching_network_types

    You can switch, but please please please do it before you get deep into a site :) Changing after you have a handful of sites is a PITA!
