Support » Networking WordPress » Setting up Multi-site WordPress with Existing Blogs

  • Hello,

    We have a server in which Wordpess is being used for customer websites and their blogs.

    There is one particular situation we are wondering if we can use the multi-site option.

    There are 60 blogs, all with the same design, different sub-domains, different content, different analytics…and much more. WP Total Cache is already installed in all of them.

    What is the best way of implementing these into a multi-site installation?

    Will this help with server CPU load and memory?

    Thanks for any feedback.

    Not really. 60 separate blogs vs 60 sites on a network is still 60 sites.

    However the how-to is annoying.

    1. Pick the main site (domain.com)
    2. Create a subsite for an existing subdomain, with a similar, but one-char off name. i.e. if you have real.domain.com, make rea1.domain.com
    3. Export from real into rea1
    4. Close real (rename that folder to real.old)
    5. In WP admin -> Network edit the site for rea1 and rename it real with an L ;
    6. Search/replace rea1.domain.com for real.domain.com on the db
    7. Repeat x 59
