    You do not edit the config file. Delete it. Visit the site in a browser, what does it say?

    If it has a bunch of fields to fill out, great.

    If it says create a config file, then you're installing it in a folder and it's finding another WP install. Do this:

    As tdjcbe was pointing out, wpmu needs a fully qualified domain name. It cannot be run with "localhost" or any single server name such as "blogs". It needs to be yourdomain.tld, so nav6.org or something.

    And based on the directory structure in your URL, Andrea's guess may also be right that it's being installed alongside regular wp.

    Yeah, he's three folders down. Missed the localhost bit.
