If it isn’t clear by now that I’m using wordpress, I hate to be the first to mention it.
From what I hear about the security issues and such with wordpress, it works as long as you do not have “shady plugins.” So, I will attempt to limit the plugins that I install. I also hear that most of the issues have been fixed. I don’t know. I’d rather state that ignorance is bliss (and that PHP has its flaws.)
But aside from that, it has been a rather eventful bunch of configuration variables and SQL editing to get everything working as it should. Sorry it took so long. I’d rather do everything that I have done on a “test” server, but I don’t think it would be very easy to emulate the specific setup present here with a simple server.
So here’s a basic outline of what I have done:
- Move wordpress into the root directory of the website
- (Kind of) set up subdomains for everything else
And I say kind of because it is not exactly done yet. The DNS records have to propogate before WordPress’s multi-domain setup will mention something about registration being closed. (And it is closed unless you have the proper contacts.)
That’s pretty much it. I could go into details (that I don’t remember) about various configuration caveats and how apache’s mod_rewrite wasn’t exactly working for me because of a bum configuration variable within the .htaccess file in the root direcotry of this website, but I’d rather not.
Once again, sorry if you noticed. Sayonara.
