Multisite on a tertiary domain, with subdomains

Hey, is this possible?

I have: and as a static html site. and other subdomains set up as other static sites. and similar subfolders are running stand-alone wordpress sites.

I want: to be multisite. and etc to be the wildcard subsites of the multisite network.

How would I configure that? Does multisite handle that out of the box, or will I be forever editing the .htaccess file whenever I add a new subdomain?

    Hey @Lydia! :slight_smile:

    As discussed on the live chat today, as long as you've set up a wildcard subdomain like this:


    And follow the directions in the setup of Multisite for editing your .htaccess & wp-config.php files, you should be just fine.

    Also, as to your follow up question there:

    Is that the .htaccess in the /dev folder only, I take it? or the main web root .htaccess?

    If your site is installed in the /dev subfolder, then you'd be editing the .htaccess there. :slight_smile:
