    Right now, the ‘root’ site is However, what I need to happen now is have the ROOT site moved to be I need this so that all admin pages reside on, and so that I can easily create new sites/subdomains using the multi-site setup.

    Any idea how to do this quickly and easily?

    In the end, would be the ROOT, and, and would all be children spun off and controlled by (if that makes any sense!) 🙂

  • Three separate websites I hope?

    You could install WP fresh in, set it up as subFOLDER (don’t worry, we can change that later), import domain1, domain2 and domain3, as subfolder1, etc.

    THEN turn off the subdomains, flip WP to subdomain via the wp-config.php, and off you go.

    Keep in mind, this is harder if you have a lot of users. Or any users save a couple.
