my web directory is as follows:
www.root | |-client1 (domain.a) | |-client2 (domain.b) | |-client3 (no index file at this level) |-site1 (no blog) (domain.c) | |-site2 (domain.d) |-.htaccess (for another reason) |-index.php |-blog | |-blog index.php (blog not in MS - installed a while back) | |-subdir1 | |-.htaccess (for another reason) | |-subdir1 index.php | |-subdir1 blog | |-subdir1 blog index.php | |-subdir2 | |-.htaccess (for another reason) | |-subdir2 index.php | |-subdir2 blog | |-subdir2 blog index.php . . . . . .
The client has a website currently with a blog (client3/site2 above), but wants to be able to add subsites - each with its own blog. Playing around with an MS install in client3/site2/subdir1/blog I am unable to get a client3/site2/subdir2/blog working.
I cannot install MS in ../subdir1 because that is the main site (which has an htaccess file of its own - as does subdir1 and subdir2 for their index pages) and there is an index.php there (for another reason).
I don't want to have to use symlinks for subdir2/blog into subdir1/blog/subdir2.blog - because that will start to create a beast in the file structure. However, I will do this if it is the best option.
I don't want to get involved in editing the htaccess file for each new subsite (htaccess is not my favorite thing - haven't worked with it much) as I don't want it to turn into a behemoth)
Where would I need to install?
The only place I see that it could/might be installed is in the http://www.root/client3 directory (on the same level as client3/site1 and client3/site2 directories) as there isn't any accessible files there, however, that places the install outside of the actual domain (domain.d) for client3/site2.
I need to access the blogs as domain.d/subdir1/blog, domain.d/subdir2/blog, etc.
Thanks in advance.
