01) Multisite

The multi-user (MU) feature has been rolled into core as Multisite ever since version WordPress 3.0.

It is ideal for a central system administrator to set up a large network of blogs with one installation. The sites in this network have different URLs.

Individual, separate site administrators are able to securely manage their templates and settings without affecting the other users.

Another scenario is a developer having all themes and plugins at the ready to create a new website for a client. The complication then becomes the transferring of all the content to the client’s base of operations.


Migrate a WordPress Multisite to a Single Site Using WordPress Functions

  1. Make a Backup
  2. Export the Single Site from the Multisite Network
  3. Install WordPress (Create a New Single Site Domain)
  4. Import Site to New Domain

02) Installation

  1. Add one line to wp-config.php
  2. Login again – follow instructions
  3. Add six more lines to wp-config.php
  4. Create the hidden .htaccess file containing the rewrite code

1) Add one line to wp-config.php

define( 'WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true );

2) Login again and go to Tools > Network Setup. Follow instructions.



Note: Install WordPress in the root of your webpath if you want to use a sub-domain install. A sub-directory install creates a path-based network, even though it does not use file system directories.

3) Add six more lines to wp-config.php

4) Finally, create the .htaccess file containing the rewrite code and place it at the top level of your WordPress installation. The file will be hidden from view within the directory.


07) Registration
