    I am having trouble installing WPMU in blogs.pinkconnect.com with the individual blogs then put in folders i.e. blogs.pinkconnect.com/blog#1

    The subdomain is mapped to a folder pinkconnect.com/blogs and when I install the software it wants the url to be blogs.pinkconnect.com/blogs

    In wp-config.php I have the following:

    define('DB_COLLATE', '');
    define('VHOST', 'yes');
    $base = '/blogs/';
    define('DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', 'blogs.pinkconnect.com' );
    define('PATH_CURRENT_SITE', '/blogs/' );
    define('SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1);
    define('BLOGID_CURRENT_SITE', '1' );

    and in .htaccess I have

    RewriteBase /blogs/

    I have tries changing these to different combinations and on some the CSS doesn't work on other the passwords on longer work.
    Any advice that can be offered is greatly appreciated.

    Take out the /blogs/ everywhere.

    I have tried that and it has errored.

    I have been able to get it CSS correctly but then the password won't work so I end up coming back to the login page.

    And in the first post you said you want subfolder blogs, but the config has VHOST= yes, which means subdomain blogs.

    finally got it.

    It was the data base tables. I went through and removed all occurances of blogs.pinkconnect.com/blogs and everything has sprung into life.
