Choosing custom location


I want to install a second installation of wordpress into my site using a subfolder.

Tried adding a subfolder to the command line:

ee site create --wpsubdir --w3tc

But that didn’t work… seemed to erase the forward slash. Any other ways of doing this? Doesn’t seem to be an option for choosing a custom install location in the config file.



ee site create –wpsubdir –w3tc

EasyEngine don’t have command to install wordpress inside other site webroot.



So I can’t do:

ee site create –wpsubdir –w3tc

But I could do this?

ee site create –wpsubdir –w3tc

I was pretty confused by the comments on the link you sent me, so any help is very appreciated.



I’m assuming you want to create a WordPress Multisite with subdirectory,

For this you have to first create WordPress subdirectory

ee site create –wpsubdir –w3tc  


Lets create


Here’s the issue. I already have an installation of WordPress in my root. I want to add a second installation with a multisite/subfolder in a folder inside my root. So… – already has existing WP install with easy engine – want to add second install using easyengine.

But when I do this command:
ee site create –wpsubdir –w3tc
The installer doesn’t recognize the forward slash so the install fails.

Does that help?


As of now EasyEngine doesn’t create site inside other website web-root.
You have to manually do this as mentioned on — already has existing WP install with easy engine

Also is single wordpress website?
