Webflow with wordpress software on same domain?


#1

I am wanting to have webflow on my main domain.

www.mysite.com

But my site will also has several other installs of wordpress

eg:

www.mysite.com/demo/wpdemo1
www.mysite.com/demo/wpdemo2

These are setup on a different host since webflow does not offer the ability to access a server as such to install this.

To have webflow on my domain I have adjusted my CNAME and DNS-A records are pointing to the webflow.

How would I set this up?

Any help, thanks.

Hi @andyjames, it is not possible to have a domain like:

www.mysite.com/wpdemo1

But, you can create a CNAME record which would point to your blog on the other server with a URL like:

blog.mysite.com and point that at the IP address for the external server where you have the WP installation.

If you have multiple WP installations, you just install those in a subdirectory off the root of your external server, so that in the end, you would have something like:

blog.mysite.com/wpdemo1
blog.mysite.com/wpdemo2

I hope that helps, you can check your own DNS domain name provider and check with them, the instructions to add the CNAME record, but you do need to point the blog.mysite.com at the main IP address of your external server to get that to work.

When you setup WP installation on the external server, you configure the WP settings for each installation to point each individual installation root path such as:

http://blog.mysite.com/wpdemo1
http://blog.mysite.com/wpdemo1

I hope that helps, and maybe some others have better solution smile

p.s. Stay tuned for updates about this kind of WP blog/cms functionality in Webflow smile

Cheers, Dave
