For testing mobile themes and other reasons, I am trying to use an existing server with wordpress setup as multisite.
The root site is not in inetpub/wwwroot but rather on another partition and that seems to work. I want to the site to be conventionally http://somesite.com and http://somesite.com/mobile
I can see that the tables are created in the db when I add the other site, but not corresponding directories of /wpadmin, /wp-content, or /wp-includes get created anywhere. I guess I am not sure where they should get created, and what permissions I would need on that directory.
I have tried using IIRF to get around the .htaccess rewrite issue, (I think) but since the correct sub-directories never get created, there is nothing to redirect to.
What have I done wrong? Is it not possible to have the base site in /? but not in /inetpub/wwwroot/?
I hope this is clear
