Adding Subdomains afterwards


#1

Hey,

I was wondering that what would be the process of adding subdomains to a EasyEngine single site configuration?
My technical knowledge is very basic, in essence what I would like to do is to be able to add a subdomain.domain.com to my existing domain.com single site wordpress configuration.

Can it be done simply by opening putty and running the following command?
ee site create subdomain.domain.com --wpsubdom

1.You need to create subdomain.domain.com (wordpress) website?

If yes then follow the below steps
ee site create subdomain.domain.com --wp

The above command create a new wordpress website which is completely different then domain.com

  1. If you like to convert single wordpress (domain.com) to wordpress multisite then
    You need to change lots of configuration like nginx rules and wordpress settings.
    Please let me know if you want to convert existing site to multisite.

At the moment I am running a site I have created with

curl -sL rt.cx/ee | sudo bash           # install easy-engine  
ee system install                       # install nginx, php, mysql, postfix  
ee site create example.com --wp         # install wordpress on example.com

but now I want to add subdomains that run as their own independent wordpress installations.
I have a review site (reviewblog.com) and want to make subdomains the likes of cars.reviewblog.com, insurance.reviewblog.com - because at the moment I have all my content under reviewblog.com and it looks rather messy.

Thanks for the support. I’ll backup everything and give it a try.

I’m assuming you are create a wordpress site reviewblog.com with easyengine

Lets create cars.reviewblog.com separate wordpress site
ee site create cars.reviewblog.com --wp

Lets create insurance.reviewblog.com separate wordpress site
ee site create insurance.reviewblog.com --wp
