Subdirectories, but a the moment the site is not yet finished.
I have to transform an existing WP "normal" install to multisite.

It is the solutions I was thinking to: 2 separate databases (and 2
separate wp installs) and a script that every night syncs the
front-end with backend, replacing all urls.
But I was wondering if there is an alternative solution, maybe with
one single WP install.
