I'm very lost here. While I am not new to wordpress, I'm new to multi sites.

I have my web site set up with Sub-directories.

1) Do I need subdomain setup for pro-sites to work correctly?

2) I tried for three days to set up subdomains. Do I need a dedicated IP to have subdomains to work correctly?

3)Once I get pro sites set up and working correctly. Does pro sites handle all my subscriptions and recurring payments or is there another plugin I need for that?

I'm really lose here and don't want to have to start all over again if I don't have to.

Thank you
Kimberly

    Hi there @Kimberly,

    Hope you're well today! :slight_smile:

    1) You don't need sub domains for Pro sites to work, Pro sites will work with either a sub directory or sub domain setup.

    2) A dedicated IP is only required if you wish to use a plugin like Domain Mapping, to setup sub domains, open your wp-config.php where you see

    define('SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', false);

    Change that to

    define('SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', true);

    Then change your .htaccess from

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    
    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?wp-admin$ $1wp-admin/ [R=301,L]
    
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $2 [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*\.php)$ $2 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    To

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    
    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteRule ^wp-admin$ wp-admin/ [R=301,L]
    
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule ^(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $1 [L]
    RewriteRule ^(.*\.php)$ wp/$1 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    3) Pro sites will handle all your payments and subscriptions, it includes both PayPal and Stripe.

    Any issues at all, we're here to help.

    Hope you are having a great weekend! :slight_smile:

    Kind Regards
    Jack.
