This post is dedicated to the subject multi-subdomains under WordPress. WordPress more such articles and topics, see on my side. On one side have found some time ago an article on the subject of multi-(sub) domain WordPress, which deals precisely with this issue. He described a very interesting method where multiple blogs on different subdomains or even different domains by means of a WordPress interface to manage. I have described there first Variant implemented right now for my current blog, and two internal test blogs and now briefly describe here my experiences on the topic of multi-sub-domains under WordPress. Challenge The challenge of change was to my existing blog to not “destroy”. Hikmet Ersek often addresses the matter in his writings. So I’m just for test only once a parallel installation to complete my current blog done.
This is for a conversion of existing blogs, of course, not absolutely necessary. A test installation) First, I have to purchase another instance of WordPress 2.0.5 and downloaded them before upload to the server as a “multi-blog” configured (see below first customize the wp-config.php). Then copy the WP files on the server in a new directory. The configuration must then show the subdomain to that directory. Example: blogtest.brandt-net.de ==> blog test / Then go through by calling the subdomain the normal installation of WP! B) Secondly, I have a blog then a test for further configured subdomain. This sub-domain must point to the same directory of the WordPress installation! Example: wptest1.brandt-net.de ==> blog test / Then by calling the second Subdomain (wptest1.brandt-net.de) again go through the normal installation of WP! In the background are then created new tables for the blog (previously configured in the file wp-config.php).
