I’m trying to do a Wordpress MU installation and I’m a bit stuck and I’m not sure if I can even do everything I need for what I want.
Basically, I’m going to set up blogs, hawkeye411.com as the base (football), and others for different sports at subdomains (basketball.hawkeye411.com, wrestling.hawkeye411.com and so on). The installation instructions for MU read like this:
Apache must be configured so that mod_rewrite works. Here are instructions for Apache 2. Apache 1.3 is very similar.
Make sure a line like the following appears in your httpd.conf
LoadModule rewrite_module /usr/lib/apache2/modules/mod_rewrite.so
In the directive of your virtual host, look for this line
and change it to
"AllowOverride FileInfo Options”
- In the section of the config file for your host there will be a line defining the hostname. You need to add the following if you want virtual hosts to work properly:
Replace domain.tld with whatever your one is, and remove the quotes.
If you want to host blogs of the form http://blog.domain.tld/ where domain.tld is the domain name of your machine then you must add a wildcard record to your DNS records. This usually means adding a “*” hostname record pointing at your webserver in your DNS configuration tool.

If anyone can tell me if and how I can make these changes I’d appreciate it. Thanks!
