We do not support installing individual sites in subfolders on Flywheel. Each WordPress installation on Flywheel lives at a specific domain.
It is possible however to accomplish “subfolders” using a WordPress multisite installation. To do so, you will need to convert your WordPress site to a multisite install, and select “subfolders” instead of “subdomains” as the style of multisite. This allows you to achieve the following:
|http://example.com/||← Main WordPress site|
|http://example.com/site1/||← Sub-site #1|
|http://example.com/site2/||← Sub-site #2|
In this configuration, your one WordPress installation will allow you to have multiple “sites”, each living at their own subfolder.
If you have questions about this configuration or need help getting it set up, give Flywheel support a shout and we’d be happy to help!
