Start mutisite in subdomain

  • Is it possible to setup a mutisite from within a subdomain, not looking to convert my main site to a multisite, but when I tired I just ended up with errors or could not log in, strange paths and all that.

    I was basically looking at starting the MS at nms.domain.ext and having the multisites sit at nms.domain.ext/site2.

    Is what I am trying to do possible or do I need to buy a new domain as to not interfere with my live site?

    Thanks

  • Totally doable. Install Multisite at nms.domain.ext and have it make subfolders and not subdomains 🙂

    So, installing Multisite is okay in a subdomain? Didn’t know that, thanks for the info. Is it just a problem when you want to enable Domain Mapping?

    Is there anything then that I am supposed to do as the default config gets me stuck on the login pge, keeps redirecting to the re-auth login.
    ANy modifications I make to the config myself either end up in some redirect loop or the wrong place.

    Cant edit pot, anyway.

    I started from scratch and the networking part is working now. I have set it up to use the subfolder option which is working for the most part, but when I visit the site its unstyled as the stylesheet hits a 404 and the wp-admin ends up with a redirect loop.

    I then updated the htaccess file as I saw there where changes in admin, now I cannot log in again.

    It’s not a problem for anything. You can map sub.domain.com/foo to foo.domain.com even. Subfolder installs (i.e. domain.com/wordpress/) can be problemaitic.

    Sounds like allowoverride isn’t set to All (or Options All) on your httpd.conf
