    I installed wordpress using filezilla and deleted it. i reinstalled it again and i there was a WP-error which stated that it could not find any wp-config.php.
    I renamed the wp-config-sample.php as wp-config.php.
    When i reloaded the webpage, http://wilkins.gentlite.com/community/ it stated that "Warning! VHOST must be 'yes' or 'no' in wp-config.php"
    Can anyone help me with setting VHOST to yes or no?
    Thanks

    Change
    define('VHOST', 'VHOSTSETTING');
    to
    define('VHOST', 'no');
    or
    define('VHOST', 'yes');

    dsader, thanks for the response. After doing that i got this error in establishing database connection http://wilkins.gentlite.com/community/

    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/askcrazy/public_html/wilkins/community/index.php:4) in /home/askcrazy/public_html/wilkins/community/wp-includes/functions.php on line 2576
    Error establishing a database connection.

    I don't know what to do to be able to install wpmu again.
    Do you have any suggestion?

    Add your db details into wp-config.php from your initial installation:

    define('DB_NAME', 'wordpress');
    define('DB_USER', 'username');
    define('DB_PASSWORD', 'password');

    I wonder why the index-install.php didn't kick in if there was no wp-config.php, though.

    I deleted the wp-config.php file i created. You may access the webpage to see it's current state. http://wilkins.gentlite.com/community/
    Has the error gotten to do with my webhost? I'm using http://justhost.com
    How do I create a good wp-config.php file to get the WPMU running?
    thanks

    I've finally been able to install the wordpress MU.
    Thanks for your help and all that. I actually wanted to install in on http://pathghana.com/community
    What I did was to rename the wp-config.php of http://pathghana.com and changed it after installing the wp-mu
    When i reloaded http://pathghana.com/community,
    i had access to the wp-mu configuration page.
    According to drift_dave wp-config.php files were conflicting

    You may have missed this:

    That, I believe is a link.

    Also can you please walk us through with specifics as what you;ve done to install the software? Have you reviewed the readme file included with the download? Followed all of the steps in that file? Have you edited the wp-config.php file (which is something you;re not supposed to do)?

    hi, when i tried to install wordpress mu, i also got this message:

    "Warning! VHOST must be 'yes' or 'no' in wp-config.php"

    i follow your suggestion to

    Change
    define('VHOST', 'VHOSTSETTING');
    to
    define('VHOST', 'no');

    but now it just send me to a url http://current_site_domaincurrent_site_path/

    why is this?

    At what stage in your installation did you get the Warning about "VHOST must be yes or no in wp-config.php"? Just a reminder that you should not create .htaccess nor upload wp-config.php manually and should let WPMU auto-generate the .htaccess and wp-config.php files during installation.

    Are you on Linux or Windows hosting? Does your server meet the requirements for installation of WPMU?

    when i first upload MU, I upload everything, including .htaccess.dis and wp-config.php. i also add database name, username, password in wp-config.php.

    i got a error that said i did not install correctly and have no database table name. Then i delete .htaccess and delete wp-config. After I delete these two files, somehow in index.php in browser, i am able to see a page that ask me to input the domain name and database username. i follow the flow in that index.php page, and it said i have no .htaccess. So I upload .htaccess.dist again. But then it said I don't have database table again.

    I check database and I don't see database tables are added. The database is still empty. My question is, why my databse has no tables inserted after I ftp all files? In WordPress, it seems the files add tables to databse. But in MU, the problem is it doesn't add tables to databse. Besides, my another question is in this forum, people said you should not ftp wp-config.php. but if i dont' ftp wp-confit.php, how do files know what is my database name and add tables to it?

    right now, in line 38-44 in my wp-confi.php, it is

    define('DB_COLLATE', '');
    define('VHOST', 'no');
    $base = '/';
    define('DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', 'mycompanyname.com' );
    define('PATH_CURRENT_SITE', 'blogs' );
    define('SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1);
    define('BLOGID_CURRENT_SITE', '1' );

    (p.s. domain_current_site i put my domain name. i don't disclose it here so i change it to mycompanyname.com)

    so, if i am going to re-install again, what do i do? do i have to remove all files in remote server and re-ftp it again in order to add tables?

    WordPress MU creates a wp-config.php file during the install. That is why you don't create it yourself.

    Delete the .htaccess file (but not the htaccess.dist), delete your wp-config.php file, and leave everything as it came when you downloaded WordPress MU.

    Now visit your domain that are installing WordPress Mu on. You'll see a page that asks you for all of the information that goes into the wp-config.php file, which is then created by the installer.

    You should really read the Readme.txt file that came with the WordPress MU download. It has all of this information and more in it.
