# subdomain mulitsite on localhost in a subfolder

I have a sudomain-based WPMU installation locally with xampp. My vhosts lists domains like follows:

127.0.0.1 mainDomain.com
127.0.0.1 siteA.mainDomain.com
127.0.0.1 siteB.mainDomain.com
127.0.0.1 siteA.com
127.0.0.1 siteB.com

The WordPress MU Domain Mapping PlugIn maps "real-domains" on system-subdomains.

To have a standard project structure, I would like to move my installation from the documentRoot to a subfolder.

My question is, what do I need to do, to accomplish that and will it have any consequences for the compatibility between my local- and a live-system?

I wouldn’t put website files into the XAMPP directory. Makes upgrades and backups too difficult. Keep software and data separately. I am running XAMPP in E:\xampp, and WordPress in E:\wordpress.latest.final. Uploads are in F:\sites\uploads.wp\mu, plugins and themes in F:\Dropbox\wp-content. F: is for data, E: for software. –  toscho Nov 22 '12 at 14:28
