Support » Networking WordPress » multisite wordpress files in a subfolder / index.php in root … possible?

  • Hi,
    I like it to install wordpress in a subfolder and place just the index.php to the root directory. I know that this was not possible with the ‘old’ wordpress multiuser. However, I tried it with wordpress 3.0 multiuser and it looks as if there are no problems at all.

    Are there known issues with multiuser if wordpress url and siteurl are different? I tried creating new blogs, uploading images and I didn’t experience any problems so it *SEEMS* to work fine. However, I would rather prefer to be sure 🙂
    Thanks for any infos on this.

    Really? It’s not supposed to work…

    for both of you, what format are you using, subdomains or subfolders?

    Samuel B – Seriously? MultiSite’s been known to blow ugly chunks when this is done. How did you do it?

    I am using subfolders and have not experienced any problems yet.

    can you login to the backend of the sub-blogs?

    Yes, I can go to the backend by clicking multisite network, choosing the site and click on adminstration. I can also log out and log in again via the backend of the sub blog.

    Did you enable the network and then move the index.php up to the root?

    The blogaddress is domain/blog/subsite

    I first moved the index.php and then enabled the network. Just noticed that the permalink is blog and the folder with the wordpress files is named blog too. Does this make a difference?

    Ah, okay.

    I thought you were somehow getting it to work so your blog was installed in domain/blog, but the URLs would be domain/subsite.

    I am officially less weirded 🙂

    Me too.

    edit: for people being told this is *not* possible, the different is the folder name is still intact. If you don’t want the folder name to show up… sorry. no can do.

    I speak Andrea:

    You cannot install in domain.com/wordpress and have your links be domain.com/blog/permalink and domain.com/subblog/permalink

    Your links will be:
    domain.com/wordpress/blog/permalink
    domain.com/wordpress/subblog/permalink
