Need to change "subdirectories" -> "subdomains" (4 posts)

    Hello.
    Sorry for my bad English.

    I installed WordPress MU with subdirectories structure of blogs. I was newbie and I was not thinking about structure of blogs a lot.
    Now I understand, that I need subdomains, not subdirectories.

    Can I change "subdirectories" -> "subdomains" without problems now? Does is possible? What I need to do that?

    Thanks.

    Not really. You could probably do it with one of the domain mapping plugins but knowing the number of redirects that would cause, that would probably get you booted from any host online.

    Best bet would be for a reinstall.

    btw, I just posted a walkthrough on my blog that goes through converting subdomains -> subdirectories, but the same process can be applied going the other way.
