Main + Subdomains setup: content already on main. (3 posts)

    Here's what I'm looking at.

    http://www.domain.com - wordpress installation is here.

    I want to create:

    en.domain.com - subdomain for English
    cn.domain.com - subdomain for Chinese

    It's already installed at www. I have a LOT of content there, but I'd like to get that onto EN, and turn www into a landing page for languge choice. When that's done, I can work on CN.

    So... how possible is this?

    subdomains are folders past the main on my server. i.e. it'll be public_html/en & public_html/cn. It was easier on my old servers when they were completely separate. Or maybe it isn't. Haven't tried this way yet.

    If you'd like to use multisite then you shouldn't be using public_html/en & public_html/cn. Multisite needs all the subdomains to be pointed to the same location as the WordPress installation -- probably /public_html.

    It should be pretty straightforward to export the content of http://www.domain.com and import to en.domain.com. Have you read through http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress?

    Sorry, just getting back to this now, and thanks, Patrick. I'll see what I can do with this. Time suddenly became scarce, so it may be awhile before I can implement this.
