The criterion of this article is to create wordpress multisite that can use ssl, mapping domain, without any other costs … so I will go into detail only one. Specifically, with Webinoly

Switch wordpress signal site to multisite

WordPress multisite is converted from Single site, or you can also choose Multisite when installed. By default, you already have a website with webinoly and now want to switch.

Create a Wildcard SSL for the domain

If you want to use ssl for subdomains, this step is to have ssl for wildcard.

sudo site -ssl=off			# tắt ssl nếu đã kích hoạt trước đó
sudo site -ssl=on -wildcard # kích hoạt ssl cho kỹ tự đại diện *

Make sure you point the domain to the server. You will be given a TXT recode to add to the domain. Note, do not press Ctrl + C to copy. Maybe you have to type Value in notepad and make sure it’s correct.

Another way is not to use Wildcard, just create a normal ssl for the primary domain and subdomain, then create the ssl by the following command:

sudo site -ssl=on

Switch to Multisite

sudo site -multisite-convert

Refress the page, re-login, then visit Network Admin > Bảng tin > Cài đặt > Cài đặt mạng
