Convert subdomain install to subdirectory install
NYCDH does not have a wildcard SSL certificate, so we cannot enforce HTTPS across the entire NYCDH multisite install due to our multisite configuration using a subdomain set up.
Converting our multisite install from a subdomain configuration to a subdirectory one would allow us to enforce HTTPS.
I'll look into making this conversion some time after DH Week is completed so we won't disrupt anything.

I'm almost ready to make the switch to a subdirectory install, but before I do, can you audit the list of sites here:
And make sure to either delete or archive sites that are no longer active? The reason I ask is making the switch will require some manual work from me to update the site URLs.
Let me know if you have any questions.

I took the liberty of going through all the sites on NYCDH.
These are the ones we can keep for sure:
These ones have test content and are candidates for removal:
- http://montclair.nycdh.org/ (just a landing page to another site)
- http://bpham.nycdh.org/ (has unpublished drafts, last active 2014, but basically empty)
- http://aids.nycdh.org (basically empty, except for a few intro posts)
- http://jlab.nycdh.org (basically empty, except for an intro post)
The rest of the sites not listed can be deleted.
Let me know what you think before I do the subdirectory switchover.

- Status changed from New to Resolved
I've gone ahead and converted the subdomain install into a subdirectory one. I've also written a redirect rule so all older subdomain links should get automatically redirected to their subdirectory equivalent.
When you have a chance, this would be a good opportunity to remove sites that have either no content or barely any content at all. I've already made a site audit in my previous post. Let me know what you think.
For now, I'm going to mark this as resolved. Let me know if you encounter any bugs.
