    Hey, I've installed WPMU on Godaddy and have followed all the directions I've found online; Dedicated IP, Wildcard, Deluxe hosting, etc.. It appears that I've installed it as I can access the dashboard of WPMU. However when I try to visit the site or any link it takes me back to the install page where it asks for my database, username, etc. Any suggestions? I'm a newb here, thanks!!!

    You really shouldn't use godaddy for a host, there good with domains, but not with hosts.
    also if your just making your MU site for friends & stuff, just signup for a free account at 000Webhost.Com, & change your name servers, to point to them, thats what i do, and my site is working GREAT!

    Don't really have a choice to change from GoDaddy, it's for a friend who plans on adding Buddy Press as well. I know other people have successfully installed it on GoDaddy so, I gotta get this thing working.

    i'm running mu, bbpress and buddypress on godaddy and have had no problems with subdomain setup at all (apart from my dreadful coding skils), i was surprised by all the negative comments about their service on here, i think they must have improved their service in the last year or so, im sure their support can help you with it

    you better tell us how you did it ... setting up muwordpress on godady is a mess, despite their (only one) help page

    I am running some wp and wpmu installs on a GD hosting account without any problems. The initial configuration, however, was a bit confusing. It has been quite a while since I did this, so forgive my 'old-timers'.

    In your Domain Manager for the target domain, you should have the following:

    ARecord @ {yourIP}
    ARecord * {yourIP}

    Under Domain Management, you should create a sub-domain for each sub-domain you want. Point all sub-domains to the folder of the domain of your wpmu install.

    In your .htaccess file, located in the folder of you wpmu install, make sure you have the following entries:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /

    ...other wp stuff...

    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    <Files async-upload.php>
    SecFilterEngine Off
    SecFilterScanPOST Off

    In your primary hosting domain root folder, make sure you have the following in the php5.ini file:

    upload_max_filesize = 8M /* or 12, 16, etc. */
    memory_limit = 64M /* or 128, etc. */

    That's basically it for the GD config stuff.

    You may want to remove/rename the wp config stuff to re-run the installer so that you can re-enter your db/site info.

    Hope this helps.
