I need to create a complex WordPress-powered set up, which I would like to run from a single code base.
My setup is complicated by a number of factors. First of all I already have software running the site's homepage, so I cannot install WordPress in the root of the domain.
example.com // <- site powered by a non-WordPress engine
To this, I would like to add a multisite installation running in a sub-directory structure:
example.com/multisite/ // <- multi-site installation of WordPress example.com/multisite/site1 example.com/multisite/site2 (...)
So far, this is easily done. The complexity arises when I want to also power some sub-domains with this WordPress installation:
site3.example.com // <- subdomain sites I would also like to power with WordPress site4.example.com (...)
I would be grateful if anyone could tell me if this is possible or not. If it is possible, have you managed to get something like this up and running? What's the right way to go about this? Are additional plugins helpful?
I will appreciate any help.
