Description (last modified by markjaquith)

This is one of the action items for the 3.4 release.

Currently, Multisite cannot be enabled if WordPress is installed within a subdirectory. This prevents you from using WordPress as an SVN or Git external. We should have parity.

Resolved: find a way to make Multisite work if WordPress is in a subdirectory.

Can you clarify that it's when WordPress is in a folder and the index.php file is moved up a folder?

Because you can enable multisite if the whole install is in a folder, such as for a subdomain. Yes, you can also install it in /whatever/ as long as you're willing to live with that in the address.

You cannot map domains to installs with a foldername in the url though.

I could have sworn there was a ticket for this already.

Anyway, glad to see it considered for 3.4.

WordPress in a folder ==> site_url != home_url
