Hi guyz! My concerns is all about wordpress multisite

Now the situation is this! My wordpress site is installed in example in domain.com now i want to have another site which uses the Wordpress features of multisite, so i prefer to install the other site in subdomain..I mean like subdomain.domain.com like that.


I follow the installation in wordpress site but when i add a new site and visit the content subdomain.domain.com that i created the content that display is only "Index of /" .

What are my possible errors that i've done..

you need to make subdomain.domain.com point to your root directory. In other words, it also needs to point to the same directory as your domain.com

First thing I'd check would be the file directory of your subdomain in cpanel. Are the Word press files in the root directory of that sub.domain, or in a WP sub-directory? If yes, then you need to move the contents of the Wordpress sub-directory to the root of your sub.domain directory.

My wordpress is in the root directory.

Are the contents of the word press in the root directory, or the word press folder? I.e. do you see the yellow folder WP in there, or the contents without the WP yellow folder?

Yes! Its in the root directory, I have remove the wordpress folder and place the content in root directory so my directory will be like this

public_html
=>index.php
=>wp-content
=>wp-admin
=>....

Did you used this tutorial codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network step by step ? I`m a novice on gigarank, is it possible to edit .htaccess as recomended?

markuss if you followed the codex exactly it should be set up.

the subdomain's root directory needs to be the actual root directory. In other words, when you set the subdomain up, it needs to point to /public_html

Agreed! htaccess/mod_rewrite only need for subdirectory based multisites. wildcard in dns and cpanel for instant subdomains.

create a new folder in your public_html folder to save the new web files and then create a new subdomain and refer to the new folder that you created before
