Hi Gang, I went ahead and just tried to create a new Network site, with what I had which was the default Softaculous Multisite installation on ASmallOrange.
It created the site no problem, but it is using subdirectories rather than sub-domains.
Seems less complicated this way, to just run with it.
I don’t see a need to switch it to use sub-domains.
I still have plenty of options using add-on or parked domains.
