Wrong Blog Type

    Lets just say I installed BuddyPress MU with the wrong blog type, subdomain vs subdirectory.

    Why is this hardcoded into the install and why can it not be undone or switched over? Lets just say I may have made a terrible mistake and really would like to switch to the other side. Ha!

  • The install type is a wpmu setting. Suggest you ask this at their forums.

    Well, haha… I’ve searched over there and no one seems to have answered other than “You can’t do it, follow the instructions retard.” Ha! BuddyPress users are just nicer overall. :)

    But hey, you’re right and I’ll give it a shot. :)

    I guess what I’m trying to find out is if the major difference is database related or file structure related. I ask this because I’ve got a blog with about 50 posts, 300 comments, and 200 registered users that I somehow installed with domain instead of subdirectory. Now if you ask me, I am 99% certain I didn’t choose subdomain because I know better and know that my host doesn’t allow for it, but because I now see that it’s setup for subdomains (now that I want to make a second blog) I feel like 1% margin for error just isn’t enough. ;)

    I digress… I’m really just looking for a little guidance as to what makes the installs so unique that it requires a full reinstall that cannot be patched in some way.
