My question is something different. I have several Wordpress Installations in my localhost:

... etc... 

I want them all to use one wordpress installation folder (except wp-content - I want each site had its own wp-content).

I dont want to use Multi-Site feature (because each 1,2 and etc sites are separate Multi-site installations themselves). So, what should I do?

I want to use only 3 files in each subdirectory, i.e.


and they use one predefined WP-CORE folder, from i.e.


how to achieve that? Maybe some htaccess and wp-config tricks will be needed?

  • You can use symbolic links but you have to make sure they all have the right permissions to read and write to the shared folders – Tunji Jan 7 '17 at 15:13
  • You could use Multisite and add the WP Multi Network plugin, which (apparently) allows for a network of networks. – Pat J Jan 7 '17 at 15:24

    Using the same installation to develop separate sites is a very, very bad idea. How do you test upgrades? Use Vagrant, Docker or something similar instead. – fuxia Jan 7 '17 at 15:40
