Multisite subdirectory and alias (4 posts)

    I installed a multisite network base on a subdirectory (called "masterdir" in this example) and it works great!


    I created an alias (called "analias" in this example) into the apache conf for the url leads to the same place :

    Apache conf:
    Alias ​​/analias /var/www/masterdir
    <Directory /var/www/masterdir>
    </ Directory>

    All this working, css and first level menu are ok but I have a 404 error when I navigate through my pages. Is it possible to run an alias with a multisite installation ?

    thank you very much

  2. WordPress doesn't like aliases.

    What's the end goal with this?

    Thanks Ipstenu

    The teachers researchers at my university will create automatically event websites on the multisite network.

    The subject of their sites will be different and I would like them to choose the URL they will transmit to their audience.

    If it's a conference : http://www.domain.com/conference/site1, if an exposition : http://www.domain.com/exposition/site1 ...

  4. And you can't have WP installed in domain.com root I take it....

    The easiest solution would be install wp at domain.com and use a MultiNetwork plugin to make two main sites 'conference' and 'exposition'. Then make all the subsites off of that.

    Obviously you could do that at domain.com/sites/ as your main WP instance, and have domain.com/sites/expo/ and domain.com/sites/conf/ and so on, with the sub-sites and subnetworks as before, but that adds an extra layer on.

    Past that, you get two separate Multisites :/

    I don't know how to reliably alias the subfolders, though. You'd just end up with both URLs working.
