    WPMu needs to be in the root of where you;re going to serve blogs from. In this case localhost.localdomain. You have the files in a subdirectory under root.

    For reference, this is mentioned in step 3 of the install instructions:

    3. Unzip to an empty folder, either in the main directory, or in a subdirectory. If you want subdomain blogs, you must use the root of your site.

    Hope this helps

    Either way, localhost won't do the wildcard subdomains.

    Add the subdomain to your hosts file.

    Could you please explain me the modifications to hosts file and how to modify it in Cpanel explicitly.
