ok, so i'm new to this thread and have done some basic WP setups before, but i am very interested in setting up a multi-site wordpress environment in order to host maybe 20 - 40 sites basically for domain parking with some content.
it appears from the thread you have had some success getting this to work on dreamhost, and i wonder if you could provide even a basic outline for the proper installation and configuration. i see what might be some fairly ambiguous terminology, so the more specific, the better, to the degree that you have time or inclination to do this. i would be grateful, as i hope others would be going forward.
does this require a Virtual Private Server, by the way?
even something in a rough form would be useful, like:
start by installing wordpress v. XX.X in the standard way into a ABC-type account.
use the plug-in found here: and be sure and set X=4 and Y=1.
for each domain, do this:
- set the blah to blip
- set nameserver at registrar to ns1.zippity.do
- add a directory here
here are two things to watch out for:
- themes can be tricky - so use this tip
- some other off-the-wall item, but here's the answer:
this would so help. if someone can provide that, i'd be willing to write up a tutorial as i step through it.
thanks a bunch.
