    I want to setup WPMU on sub.domain.com and have the blogs create at sub.sub.domain.com, but I'm getting a URL of http://sub.domain.com/wp-signup.php?new=sub.domain.com and a LOOP error in FF when I try to visit the homepage. I did search the forums, but didn't find any specific answers. Any pointers before I *headdesk*?

    You need a wildcard A DNS entry of *.sub.domain.com and your virtualhost setup in apache to have a ServerAlias *.sub.domain.com

    I would start there for sure.

    Also be aware that sometimes you might find external access slow.

    I've seen some very funny things with sub.sub.domain.com with DNS resolution sometimes taking a couple of seconds.

    Thanks guys. I think we've decided that sub.domain.com/subdirectory is a suitable method for our site. I appreciate the feedback.
