MU Wordpress

I have installed a WP MU blog and when I create a blog, I get the welcome email, I click the link but the bog is not there - error message.

My htaccess is this:

php_flag register_globals 0
php_flag display_errors 0
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /

#uploaded files
RewriteRule ^(./)?files/$ index.php [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !.wp-content/plugins.
RewriteRule ^(.
/)?files/(.*) wp-content/blogs.php?file=$2 [L]

add a trailing slash to /wp-admin

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^.*/wp-admin$
RewriteRule ^(.+)$ $1/ [R=301,L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
RewriteRule . - [L]
RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-.) $2 [L]
RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.
.php)$ $2 [L]
RewriteRule . index.php [L]

SecFilterEngine Off SecFilterScanPOST Off

Which comes with the WPMU install files.

Is the wild card thing set in Dreamhost? Can I install WPMU blogs on DH?

Wildcard DNS can only be turned on by Support. They’ll need a good explanation from you why you want it turned on.


No, not by default it is not, and while your attempts to set a custom DNS with a “*” might seem to work, they will not produce the desired results.

More details on this, and how you may be able to use wildcard DNS on Dreamhost, can be found here: :slight_smile:

If you want similar functionality, and don’t care about wildcard DNS, you might check out the [url=]Lyceum[url].
