WordPress 3.0 as MU
Since WordPress 3.0 allows any installation to be converted to MU, will Dreamhost allow to use this feature to everyone, despite we have PS?
It would require to setup the DNS wildcard...

RE: WordPress 3.0 as MU
The release of WordPress 3.0 has no bearing on our policy: we will not set up wildcard DNS for domains on shared hosting.

As far as I'm aware, it does not. If you do set up WP3 in multisite mode, though, please do NOT allow public registration — open WPMU setups are highly prone to getting spammed.

Could you double-check this information? We're seeing a lot of support threads with users unable to get the subfolder sites running properly because a slash is being stripped out. Everything else in the setup is correct. In fact, one poster says he did get it working but it came back - which suggested a server script to me. Wink Yes, most users asking were on DH.

And it's perfectly fine & understandable if it isn't supported - it just makes it easier on the wp.org volunteers and mods if we know this ahead of time. Wink

Andrea, I'm not aware of anything we're doing that would be cause that sort of problem, but I've opened a bug to have someone look into this. I'll reply back once I have an answer.

I've definitely found something. See these threads -
http://wordpress.org/support/topic/418807
http://wordpress.org/support/topic/419042

It's either soemthing specifci to how your boces are set up, or your Fantastico install. I haven;t determined yet if these users used Fantastico or not.

Whatever's adding theme lines:

$server = DB_HOST;
$loginsql = DB_USER;
$passsql = DB_PASSWORD;
$base = DB_NAME;

is mucking up the installs. Note that the $base has the db_name as the variable. The base is the base of where the install is located. If in the root, the value would be '/'.

Edit: a user reported they used the one-click install on one of your dedicated accounts.

Yep, it looks like there's a bug in our installer. I'll have someone fix that when I get in next week.

RE: WordPress 3.0 as MU
Does one instance of WPMU/WP 3.0 multisite running 5 sites have more load than five individual WP installs? That's assuming the traffic and all that are the same.

RE: WordPress 3.0 as MU
All other things being equal, I'd expect a single multisite install at that scale to generate marginally less load than five individual installs.

Most of the issues that we've had with WPMU in the past have been caused by users setting up MU installs with public registration and ending up with thousands of spam blogs in their database — I've seen as much as 30,000 in one database once. So long as the creation of blogs is restricted to the site administrator, chances are that using WP3 this way will be perfectly fine… but I'll have to check with the honchos tomorrow to get an official statement. I'm just a code monkey here. :)
