does it need to be registered domains the additional sites i will install?

Ben Grieve says:

Disregard what I just said. You skipped out on the first step. When I moved
to the second page, then I saw what you showed us. Perhaps you should have
shown that step? It was a pretty important one.

Giovanni Juliao says:

Hi, great vid. what about the codes?
Where can I copy and paste it? in my dashboard they dont appear!!

Ben Grieve says:

My network setup looked different. I’ve done this before locally and I had
to add all that code but for some reason now that I’m trying to do this
with Hostgator, it doesn’t ask me to add any of that code. I assume this
had to do with what I did before making changes to the config file. I
created a subdomain through the cpanel called *.

Telmo Silva says:

hi there friend, you realy made a very cool and easy video! I will use this
to make my second website with wp.I only want to ask you one thing, i
already have a wp website, online using filezilla. I want to know, can i
use filezilla for a second website? And if i can, can you explain me how? I
think i can´t have them both running at the same time…and i have my wp
files on filezilla running with my 1rst website, so if i change the
wp-config.php folder for multiple websites, will that affect it?

I found it hard to earn cash on the internet until I discovered ATM Home

$9,000 every single month.

Jason Nellyer says:

In your video you show to create this in config.php:
define(‘WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE’, true); however, current installation has this
above the happy blogging line; define(‘WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE’, false); So, all
a user needs to do is alter it from false to true. Otherwise they could end
up with a true/false argument meaning the “network setup” command will not
show in wordpress.

Carlos FAS says:

this was very helpful, thank you. How can i attach a domain to one of the
subsites so it’s not mywebsite. com/newebsite and instead is mywebsite2.
com for example ?

peggo says:
