I have Civi for WordPress installed on the main domain of our site and have multiple other WordPress installations on various subdomains. To streamline things a bit, I'm preparing to enable WPMS. I was wondering if there are any special considerations I need to make to ensure Civi doesn't get broken somehow. It doesn't need to share data with any of the other sites.

You only need to be aware that Civi doesn't fully work with WPMS as yet. You can Network Enable it, but the Civi backend will not function as expected on sites other than the main site. There are workarounds, but since you aren't using on sub-sites then you should be fine if you just enable it on the main site.

  • I have found that it is best to enable on the site you are using CiviCRM on. Typically the main site, but not always. We have also implemented CiviCRM Multi-Site following this: wiki.civicrm.org/confluence/display/CRMDOC/… You still need to activate per site (network activate will fail) but it does work. We've also user org.civicrm.multisite to help with permissioning. Jul 14, 2015 at 20:50
