I am on a VPS running Nginx as a backend server.
I want to set up a sub-directory multisite WordPress installation, however I want all sub-sites to be under one sub-domain also. For example:
My main site:
clients.domain.com/site1 clients.domain.com/site2 clients.domain.com/site3
I realise I can install another copy of WordPress under
clients.domain.com and use that as the Multisite home, however since
domain.com is already running WordPress this strikes me as inefficient in terms of management and disk space especially as I only wish to serve a login page at the root of that subdomain anyway.
I also realise I can redirect all requests to
domain.com however I don't want the subsites or their related files to be accessible via
domain.com/site1. The subsites should recognise their parent site as being
What is the best method for going about this?
