    First I created wp-config.php file and edited, it gave errors

    Later, I let the installation create its own config file , it gave errors too

    Finally I thought I was successful till I realized that everything was ok except db tables.

    The errors I got were :

    Loop redirection error
    $base /blogs/ error
    Wp headers sent errors etc

    Now this is how it looks like:

    I want to create tables manually and will check if it still gives errors.

    I searched sql tables in MU but couldn't find it

    Thanks for your concern

    It looks like things are seriously messed up given that you are getting open_basedir errors

    1) Delete ALL the files/directories in the WPMU root directory
    2) Drop all the tables in the database that are associated with WPMU
    3) Upload a new copy of the WPMU files
    4) Follow the installation instructions step by step.

    BTW: WPMU does not expect the urls to contain www and mixing your blogs with your non blog site can lead to problems.

    Thank you for your concern Steve

    Now I uploaded the files again.

    This is what it says:

    Problem in wp-config.php - $base is set to BASE when it should be the path like "/" or "/blogs/"! Please fix it!

    I know what to do if I got it as I should but I want to be sure, can you pls help me and direct me?

    Thank you

    If you get that message, then it is finding a another single WP install on the same server.

    This is what you need to do so the installer will run on its own:

    Sorry I have a weird problem here.

    It seems like there is no problem in admin panel. But when I open homepage, it still asks for a new installation, although it is already installed =)

    What can I do?

    Thanks.

    A high performance hosting package, not a server or vps ( forumsunucu.com , a local hosting company )

    Thank you

    Sorry but any solution for this?

    I can login to admin panel and do anything but when I click on homepage, it asks a new installation though each time I install it never changes.

    What the permission & ownership on wp-config? Did it make a htaccess file?

    andrea_r thank you so much for your concern

    I told my host owner the problem and he added this code : && 0

    I don't know but it worked.

    I just asked him what he had done to solve it and he told me that he added that code and it worked. Maybe you understood. because I am not a coder.

    Thank you again.

    Added that code where? I'm betting it was server specific.

    I am checking now and I see this code added to wp-blog-header.php Line 8

    if ( !isset($wp_did_header) && 0 ) {

    But as I said, I still can't get it. I just tell it so that you know.

    Thank you.

    If I interpret that correctly, that bypasses the check to make sure 'wp-config.php' is installed correctly. Am I wrong?

    Sounds like original problem might have had something to do with permissions. I found the install process to be inconsistent when the install directory is not 777
