Transition multiple independent WP sites to one WP multisite on the server with minimal downtime

I currently have three independent WordPress blogs hosted on a single shared server.

The main domain (we’ll call domain-A is sitting in the public_html folder. domain-B and domain-C are separate WP installs residing as subfolders within public_html. Each of the installs is mapped to its own, unique URL.

Here’s the structure of the server:

/public_html     ..core WP files, etc     /domain-B         ...WP install core files     /domain-C         ...WP core... 

I am attempting to set up a WP multisite, incorporating all 3 blogs under domain-A as my main parent site.

My plan is to create the multisite in another subfolder in public_html and once the site is configured, I want to seamlessly – with minimal downtime – swap out the independent sites for the one multisite.

How would I do that?

Here’s what the new server config might look like:

/public_html     ..core WP files, etc     /domain-B         ...WP install core files     /domain-C         ...WP core...     /new_multisite 

Ideally, it would be great if I just had one wp multisite install in the root folder and could remove the other independent installs, e.g:

/public_html     ... wp multisite core files, etc.. 

I read some stuff about configuring my local hosts file on my system to be able to re-route the IP address to a domain URL (still a little fuzzy on some of the details of that) but I don’t see how that helps with a live site and/or a remote server.

Also, is it safe to create a "sandbox" site in a subfolder on the shared server? How can I keep this folder undiscovered or inaccessible? I am considering doing the setup on my local computer using WAMP as a dry run but I’ll still have to contend with uploading it to the live server, testing it, then making the switch from 3 independent blogs to one multisite.

Edit: I’m learning now that .htaccess can be used to control redirects to a subdomain, so theoretically, all requests to the original domain(s) can be redirected to sites/domains within the multisite. Obviously, the specifics of this starts to get a little hairy.

Thanks in advance,

One thing to remember is that numerous sites that offer a free converse phone query e

Cheating is beguiling yet it is, sadly, getting more normal. Mobile phones make being a sneak simpler in light of the fact that numbers appear as not accessible or unlisted. With some cell specialist co-ops the proprietor possibly shows up on the off chance that it is gone into the telephone. Since it isn’t so natural to follow a wireless number more individuals have begun checking on the web examination techniques to look through whether their huge others are swindles.

One thing to remember is that numerous sites that offer a free converse phone query essentially don’t really give that. What they do is they just do the underlying quest for nothing to let you know whether the number is accessible. Practically every one of them work that way. You enter the number you are looking for and afterward you are told whether they have a report for you or not. The explanation these organizations charge for this information is on the grounds that the specialist co-ops charge them for admittance to the information base then they need to consolidate all the various data sets into an accessible configuration. They give their expenses to the customer. For more information visit consumer phone database

Store cookies for multiple sites on remote server and connect from multiple clients


Would it be secure to:

  1. Store all my website cookies (stack sites, webhost, github, web-based email, etc) on a remote server (using an customized open-source VPN or something)
  2. Login to the server with password + 2fa (and maybe have a trusted devices list?)
  3. Keep the cookies only on the server… never actually download them to any of my devices
  4. When visiting stackexchange.com, for example, my server would send the cookies to stack exchange, get the response, and send it back to me, but REMOVE any cookies & store them only on my server

Benefits (I think):

  1. I could keep diverse and very strong passwords for every website, but don’t store the passwords anywhere digitally (keep them on paper in a safe at home or something)
  2. logging in to all the sites I use on a new device only requires one sign in (to my custom VPN server)
  3. Only cookies would be stored digitally, so if anything went wrong server-side, my passwords would be safe & I could disable all the logins through each site’s web-interface

Problems (I think):

  1. If the authentication to my custom VPN is cracked, then every website I’ve logged into would be accessible
  2. The time & energy & learning required to set something like this up.

Improvement idea:

  1. When I sign in to the server the first time, the server creates an encryption key, encrypts all the cookies with it, and sends the encryption key to me as a cookie. Then on every request, my browser uploads the key, the website’s cookie is decrypted, then the request is made to whatever website I’m visiting. Then only one client could be logged in at a time (unless the encryption cookie were stolen)
  2. Encrypt each cookie with a simple password, short password or pin number
  3. An encryption key that updates daily (somehow)
  4. Keep a remote list of trusted devices, identified by IP address? Or maybe by cookie?

Why not just sign into the browser and sync cookies across devices?

  • Signing into Firefox mobile & Firefox on my computer doesn’t give the cookies to Twitter’s or Facebook’s web-browsers (that frustratingly always open first instead of taking me to my actual browser!)
  • It’s not as cool?
  • That would require me to trust a third-party (of course, I’ll ultimately have to trust my web-host to some extent)

Multiple clients sites were de-indexed from yahoo/bing – what is going on?

In the last few days I have had multiple client sites de-indexed from yahoo/bing and there seems to be no rhyme or reason to it. Some sites were done completely white hat and others were black hat sites with completely different themes, owners and linking strategies done. Has anyone else had their site de-indexed from yahoo/bing recently? If so please post the details here so we can figure out what is going on.

Izito and similar sites keeps appearing in my search results

Izito and similar sites keep appearing on my search engine results. It started a few weeks ago. It has been happening on both – my Ubuntu and Windows computer, and even on a new Windows computer. It has been happening on Chrome and Microsoft Edge and on Google and Bing. I have since installed Bitdefender AV and done factory resets and it still keeps coming back after a while. I was wondering if someone could please advise on what might be causing it, what damage / impact it might (have) caused, and how I could get rid of it.
