Installation in a subdirectory, subsequent blogs as subdomains (7 posts)

    Hi,

    I'm wondering if this is at all possible:

    I have WPMU installed in a subdirectory:
    http://www.site.com/blogs

    I am wondering if it's possible to have the main blog located at that address, and have all other blogs located at subdomains, like blog1.site.com blog2.site.com etc.

    I have read that this is not possible, but the post was old, and I just wanted to check again. I a web developer and have a good understanding of mod_rewrite, so if anyone has any hack-like ideas, please post!

    Thanks. :)

    Yes but you wind up doing a redirect of a redirect times 4 or 5. Any real host would boot you for doing that as it puts strain the server.

    Hi, i'm wrtting to this topic one yer later than the first post.

    My goal is the same one:

    I'm wondering if this is at all possible:

    I have WPMU installed in a subdirectory:
    http://www.site.com/blogs

    I am wondering if it's possible to have the main blog located at that address, and have all other blogs located at subdomains, like blog1.site.com blog2.site.com etc.

    Is any solution or process to do this nowadays? Any help is possible?

    Thanks a lot! ;)

    It was solved over a year ago.

    If you just can't use the root of the primary domain, buy another domain.

    Hi,

    I'm after something that I would have thought would be simpler, however, I'm beginning to think that it ain't!

    Thanks for being here by the way.

    I have MU installed in a sub-directory. (I hear you groan!) The difference is, that I don't need subdomains. All I need is something like this:

    http://mydomain.org/wordpressmu/blog1,
    http://mydomain.org/wordpressmu/blog2,
    http://mydomain.org/wordpressmu/blog3,
    http://mydomain.org/wordpressmu/blog5604, (Would be nice!)

    Is this possible? :?

    Thank you.
    Regards,
    Sonny

    Yup. Pick subfolders on install. :)
