    Hi, I'm trying to install Wordpress MU, I followed the readme.txt, forums and all, but always my navigator say:

    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.

    My firefox is last version... and on IE never ends to load the URL

    I add all say http://ma.tt/2003/10/10/wildcard-dns-and-sub-domains/ ... and nothing... this is my code:

    ServerName subd.domain.tld
        ServerAlias *.subd.domain.tld
        RedirectMatch 301 ^(.*)$ http://subd.domain.tld/
        <Directory "/usr/local/apache/htdocs/subd">
              Options +Indexes FollowSymLinks +ExecCGI
              AllowOverride FileInfo Options
              Order allow,deny
              Allow from all
        </Directory>

    I try it to comment: RedirectMatch 301 ^(.*)$ http://subd.domain.tld/
    but is the same message :-(

    please!!!! help me!!! ...I really interested to test wordprees mu and buddypress

    Thanks!

    What's the link to your site and did you se the www in the address?

    Maybe you should install WordPress 3.0 instead, then enable the network. it's the same as mu.

    BuddyPress works on single Wordpress as well. 3.0 gives you the options of new blogs, same as MU. That's the only difference.

    It could be becasue you;re installing on a subdomain.

    Go get the beta of Wordpress 3.0. It will be released in the next 24-48 hours anyway.

    Then turn on the network (http://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network) and you'll have multiple blogs. WPMU is no longer being developed.

    this version have the next benefits?

    • Unlimited users and blogs.
    • Scaling many of pageviews per day.
    • Different permissions on different blogs.
    • Unlimited groups
    • Ambiguity about how to pronounce its name
    • Buddypress works with all propieties previous listed

    The devs took wordpressmu and merged it in with wordpress. So yes, it has all that it did before.

    Hi, I installed Wordpress 3.0 beta, but when I install Buddypress I can't create groups under buddypress, why?

    In buddypress forum says it happens because isn't MU version, if it's true how can I upgrade my WP to WP MU????

    - last I checked, Groups in BuddyPress worked fine in single WordPress.

    - you dont "upgrade" wordpress to mu. MU is not longer suppoerted, it;s built in with 3.0.

    Do this:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network

    I add this line:

    define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);

    like Codex says, and groups option of Buddypress not appears :-(

    That line has nothing to do with buddypress.

    Go to the backend admin area of your site and look at the buddypress setup menus.

    /wp-admin/admin.php?page=bp-component-setup

    Now, are groups enabled?

    Again, the Groups have nothing to do with multisite.

    • I delete all (DB, directories, and files),
    • I re-install,
    • and when my WP was installed, I desactive and delete hello plugin, and update Akismet plugin,
    • and update wordpress,
    • then I install bpGroups - BuddyPress Plugin
    • after I install buddypress

    ...and it work!!! with groups sections!!!!

    The bpGroups plugin is for extra group functionality.

    That is entirely different than the Groups built in to buddypress itself.
