    Hello,
    I searched the forum but didn't found any solution for what i want to do...
    I want to instal WordPress MU to blog.domain.com.
    I want all the blogs to be created as name.domain.com. Practicaly on same domain but not like name.blog.domain.com... Anyone know how to do that?
    I have set the * on DNS and apache configuration...

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Oh I misread. You can't do that. You have to install MU at domain.com if you want it. If you already have a site at domain.com then you can integrate it into MU.

    The information in this post is exactly what I am trying to accomplish, has anyone found a work around?

    @Klarko: if I install to blog.domain.com and select Sub Domains the blogs will be created to name.blog.domain.com...

    I have http://www.domain.com and @.domain.com pointing to our shopping cart on one server an *.domain.com on my wordpress server where I was hoping to create many blogs for our authors. Could I change @.domain.com to the wordpress server and then do a redirect to http://www.domain.com?

    question about an installation problem on installing to a server that uses add on domains. I can't seem to get the database found. Is that an issue anyone else has had?

    On some servers, WPMU will not install to an add-on domain.
