Support » Networking WordPress » Should you manually create sub-directories for multisites?

    Hello,

    Here’s my current WordPress directory configuration:

    wp
    index.php
    licence.txt
    readme.txt
    wp-admin

    wp-content

    once I have enabled multisite mode in wp-config.php and .htaccess, do I need to create a new sub-directory in ‘wp’ (eg, ‘blog1’, ‘blog2’, etc.) for each new site and copy all php files contained in the standard wordpress directory (ie, ‘wp’), to each sub-directory?

    Last but not least, how do you import WXR files for each site?

    Many thanks.

  • No you do not. You might need to create a blogs.dir if you are not using the latest version 3.5 (3.5.1).

    Thanks for replying.

    I have followed the instructions in Create_A_Network. However, what is not clear in that article is how to add new sites.

    I have created a new site in the Dashboard called site1. However, when I visit it, I get the following message:

    The requested URL /wp/site1/ was not found on this server.

    Go to /wp-admin/network/

    There’s an add new site right there.

    The requested URL /wp/site1/ was not found on this server.

    That means you probably didn’t setup your .htaccess

    HI Itsenu,

    just created a new site as suggested. The new site called “test1” appears in the list of sites. However, the administrator (myself) hasn’t received any e-mail and the “wp” directory does not contain a “test1” sub-directory, contrary to what the Edit Site Window indicates (“path: /wp/test1”). There’s no point in modifying “wp”‘s .htaccess file as there’s no “test1” sub-directory.

    One more thing, in my Apache logs, there’s the following message:

    [Tue Feb 26 10:07:18 2013] [error] [client xxx.xxx.xxx] File does not exist: /webapp/intranet/wp/test1, referer: http://abc.def.com/wp/wp-admin/network/site-info.php?id=2

    I finally figured out what was wrong: the .htaccess file in wp was not taken into account by Apache because the AllowOverride for the directory that included wp, in httpd.conf, was equal to None instead of All.

    Resolved.

    i have same problem, can you tell me how to allowoverride apache ?
