Support » Networking WordPress » Multisite Installation

  • Hello ,
    I am not a hard core techie so will try to explain as best as I can.

    1. I have a shared hosting server space where I am allowed to host multiple domains.
    2. I already have a domain hosted (http://footprintsforever.com) under a folder called “wp” created under public.html.

    3. The WP installation is still not a multisite enabled, but I guess I will be able to manage that and convert it into a multisite WP installation.

    4. I would like to start another separate blog with a new domain (www.mynewdomain.com ) domain (not a sub domain/ sub directory). This is NOT a multidoman mapping or redirection to the original domain.

    Question :
    I need to Know if my multisite enabled WP installation can help me to achieve this. DO we need to again install seperately , say , in another folder named new_wp ?

    Also in that case can the same plugins/ themes need to be replicated or would the same installation be shared among these two unique / individual sites.

    If so, can anyone please advice or provide any links for documentation / videos.

    Thanks in advance,
    Samit

  • Hello,

    For adding a new domain in your shared hosting with multiple domain Plan you need to click on option knows as addon domain under cpanel which will make a Folder under public_html were existing domain files are there.
    For example if you a added a new addon domain http://www.mynewdomain.com it will create a folder name mynewdomain.com were you can install a new wordpress with new database. without affecting any existing WordPress website.

    Hello neelgajjar

    In that case, it works with a separate WP installation.

    What I wanted to know is can I have multisite installation for WP , thus using the same installation to control different sites from the same dashboard.
    This happends for wordpress.com sites, and I have seen videos/ checked docs for adding sub-domain.

    I need to know if a unique domain can also be managed as such.
    Thanks

    Yes this is possible with WP multisite. I have it setup using Domain Mapping plugin. Note that you might run into problems with logins and SSL certificates. It depends on your host. To be clear one of my WP sites has over 400 sites with names like:
    *.domain.com
    domain2.com
    domaain3.com
