WordPress Multisite is good option for those who want to run multiple sites, multiple blogs or want to offer blog hosting services to others.WordPress.com and Edublogs.org are vert good examples of large blog networks that use WordPress Multisite.
You can install WordPress as:
Your existing WordPress site will be updated when creating a network. So, deactivate all active plugins. You can reactivate them again after the network is created.
Place below code into your
Create a Network of WordPress Sites screen and look at
Administration >Tools > Network Setup and you will get below screen.
After you enter Network title and email address and click on install your network in configured and ready to use.
If this is a pre-existing install, you will receive a note saying that only sub-domains are possible due to possible permalink conflicts.
If you are installing on a localhost, you will only be allowed to install via sub-directories.
After you have configured these settings, click install, and you should see the following screen:
Create a new directory named
blogs.dir, and place that in your root folder’s
wp-content folder as it will be used to store all of our network’s uploaded media then place above screen code into
wp-config file and
htaccess as per instruction given in screen2.
Now go to
Tools > Network Setup and choose whether you want to use sub-domains or sub-directories.
Choose after thinking twice as you can’t change this later.
Now go to Tools >Contact your host first if you want to use sub-domains to ask if they are able to set up Wildcard DNS records for your site because all hosting companies don’t support this option.
If you want to use sub-domains, you need to contact your host and ask them to set up Wildcard DNS records for your site.
e.g. log into your support area of cpanel and ask them to set up
Wildcard DNS records for your site.
Sub-domains have site URLs like
site2.domain.tld and all companies not allow you to use sub-domains and you need to check with your hosting company before choosing this option.
This is the easier option because you don’t need to get your hosting company to set up Wildcard DNS records for your site.
Check your Apache mod_rewrite should have already been enabled by your hosting provider, if not contact hosting provider and enable it.
