    Installation went fine. When I try to log in to admin i get this message from the browser. this occurs when install choosing sub-directories for blogs but not if I choose sub-domains.
    Can anyone please tell me why this happens?

    The page isn't redirecting properly

    Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

    You did enable mod_rewrite didn't you?

    Is there anything in the apache error log?

    Also, if you used www. in your url, try reinstalling without the www.

    Check your apache error logs, if you've got a looping rewrite then you should see something in there about that.
