I have installed a Drupal site with lightning profile and exported all the configuration in to /config/default folder using drush config-export command.

After that I have created a subsite and the subsite is installed with a custom profile which depends on lightning profile.

But after installation in subsite status report it is showing that Installed profile is 'lightning' instead of my custom profile.

Am I missing anything? Is there any additional parameters to be added in custom profile?

  • Did you copy settings.php? The profile is stored in there now, maybe it hasn’t been updated and Drupal uses that setting for the status report

  • Problem could occures if sites.php isn't available or readable. It should be situated on your sites folder on ./sites/sites.php Have a look at the Multisite Drupal 8 Setup for more information.
