    Heya Y'all,

    I've put up a quick (8 minute) video that runs through everything you need to do to simply install WPMU via cPanel on a simple $7 + domain hosting plan:

    Would love some feedback on how this could be improved / anything I've missed out / other stuff so let me know how you find it!

    Cheers, James

    A very good video tutorial. I watched it from end to end.

    I think the clip would help more people out if the it was made for stand alone type Wordpress. As I see quite a lot people who want to install their own blogs have least knowledge on cpanel and ftp.

    On the other hand, I guess for those who brave enough venturing into WPMU, should already have some experience in standalone WP or the likes.

    For myself I found the most challenging part on making a WPMU site is how to customize and fine tunning it.

    "Market" size of WP is likely be hundreds times bigger than WPMU : )

    Cheers mate.

    Um, the readme file maybe?

    If you search the forums here, there's a couple of cpanel walkthrus already.

    No, this is brilliant Farms! I could've done with this back in April 08 when my VPS host upgraded us to cPanel, thus wiping out my whole install for the first time. I then ended up having to reinstall WPMU 6 times (count them, 6!) for various reasons.

    Thanks guys - do you think that the written guides should be in pdf (print out and follow) or just on the screen... or both :)

    Greate tutorial, but, how do I make multiple blogs ¿?, I have 8 domains that I want to convert to a blog, so I have installed and owrking a WP MU on one subdomain of one of the 8 domains I have.
    So, how do I make the other domains using WP MU ?, should I install on each one a WPMU but with the same database ? or usign a plugin!?.

    Sorry if its a stupid question but I don´t have any idea!

    Thanx

    check out "domain mapping" here in the forums.

    you set up each blog as a sub-blog on your MU install, then map each domain to each blog.
