    I've had this issue several times and I DO NOT see where it is addressed anywhere within the installation procedure however, it would appear that wordpressmu attempts to query a non-existent table in the newly created MySQL database during set-up:

    WordPress database error Table 'wordpressmu.wp_blogs' doesn't exist for query SELECT * FROM wp_blogs WHERE domain = 'foo.com' AND path = '/wordpressmu/' made by require, include, include_once, require_once, require_once WordPress database error Table 'wordpressmu.wp_sitemeta' doesn't exist for query SELECT meta_value FROM wp_sitemeta WHERE site_id = 1 AND meta_key = 'site_name' made by require, include, include_once, require_once, require_once, get_current_site_name WordPress database error Table 'wordpressmu.wp_blogs' doesn't exist for query SELECT blog_id FROM wp_blogs LIMIT 0,1 made by require, include, include_once, require_once, require_once WordPress database error Table 'wordpressmu.wp_sitemeta' doesn't exist for query SELECT meta_value FROM wp_sitemeta WHERE meta_key = 'wpmu_sitewide_plugins' AND site_id = 1 made by require, include, include_once, require_once, get_site_option

    This occurs using the standard install wizard. Of course hacking into the database is needed to change the stie admin password (which you can't receive if the server you are placing it on only supports (or you haven't written a php mail handler for your site already) SMTP and of course the "wizard" is not set-up for this.

    Anyway, my question is this (actually two installation questions):

    1) What is the proper procedure for creating the database from the command prompt (that phpmyamin thing is bunk; doesn't sink up properly, etc.)?

    2) What is the path or better stated where in the configuration file do I set the path for new users to create their own blogs using a file structure?

    I suppose I will get deleted again for I asked part of this question 2 hours ago and don't see my post here anymore
