Multisite installation (subdirectory url)

I have two existing live sites running drupal 7 ( and --> /en automatically selected for english language) and I want to unite them with subdirectory urls with seperate databases. I am following Drupal documentation for installing multi-site#subdirectory. In order to make the symbolic link I need to have ssh access to the server to run the commands. But my hosting service informed me that I am not allowed to remote access. Does anyone know if there is any alternative?

Thanks for the help!

Up to this point the steps I followed:

wildcard setup for subdirectories

I am not sure if we'd pursue with multisite installation, but at the moment we have one site which supports multiple language like:

There seems to be a translation bug/error while using this setup, so, we are thinking about using it as subdomain (might be multisite) like:

But again, we'd also have some other feature not directly related with main site (only the user information) like:

Updates Not Working When Drupal is Configured in Subdirectory

I'm currently redirecting the home page of my site to the Drupal (7) site that I have set up in a subdirectory of my root. It appears that this configuration makes it difficult to run updates from the administrator UI (as opposed to manually updating via my CPanel file manager). I'm not terribly familiar with this kind of in-depth site configuration trouble shooting... Does anyone have suggestions as to what files (if any) need to be adjusted to allow Drupal to run as if it were in the root directory (thus avoiding problems like this in general).

Redirecting subdirectory into root, and all pages therein

Hey there everyone,

So for a while there I was placing all of my drupal content in a subdirectory, and redirecting all my visitors to the subdirectory. I've come to discover through working with some people who do a lot of SEO work that it's not a good idea to go doing that. So, I moved everything to the root directory from the subdirectory, did abunch of other stuff for SEO, and now I want to redirect everything from the old sub directory back to the root directory.
