How to activate the Wordpress multisite function?

The Multisite Network functionality is integrated into WordPress. You must first install and configure WordPress as you normally would. Next, you need to enable this multi-site feature.

You can also enable multi-site functionality on an existing WordPress site. Before activating the multi-site option, however, it is strongly recommended to create a full backup of your WordPress site.

To enable the Multisite Network, open the wp-config.php file for editing using an FTP client or the cPanel file manager.

You must add the following code to your wp-config.php file just before the/* line That’s all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */ .

/* Multisite */
set ( 'WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true );

Once you have added the code, save the changes and upload your edited wp-config.php file to the server.

This code enables WordPress’s multi-site functionality. Once this is enabled, you still need to configure the multi-site network.
