Hello WPMUDEV, I recently reactivated my account because you always have the best tech to assist me on some challenging things.
This one is quite challenging indeed!
I recently built a site for Comedy Dynamics(comedydynamics.com) and they decided they would also like me to develop their parent company Nacelle but to create a Multisite setup so they can edit both from the same admin. With some stipulations:
1) both sites must be on seperate domains(comdeydynamics.com & nacellecompany.com)
2) They would like to share data across sites as well (post types & media library)
I have been following your blog articles to convert the existing comedydynamics.com site into a Multisite & setup multiple domains, but I was recommended by SiteGround, our hosting provider, to NOT convert the comedydynamics.com site into a multisite. But instead download a copy of the site, delete the existing site, reinstall WordPress as Mulitsite through the Sofalicious app & reupload the site.
That seems a bit extreme, wouldn't you say? & are the stipulations I mentioned above possible?
Also, can I develop the new Nacelle site on my local computer and easily upload it as a network site?
Thanks for your help!
