    I meet the error:

    Problem in wp-config.php - $base is set to BASE when it should be the path like "/" or "/blogs/"! Please fix it!

    Why?

    if you have WPMU in your site's root, use

    /

    if you have WPMU set up in a subdirectory (folder), use

    /somefoldername/

    HTH.

    I would hope you didn't try to rename wp-config-sample.php to wp-config.php, and then add in your db details.

    The directions don't say to do that, so you shouldn't have.

    Good point, lunabyte. To the OP, just let WPMU do it's thing. Then, if it is still giving you that error message, go ahead and edit the wp-config file in that one place (but don't disturb anything else that it's set up.

    OT: I wish WP would behave the way WPMU does so you don't have to edit the wp-config file before starting the install.

    I could have sworn that WP used to be that way. I answered a question once on that topic and was told that it no longer modified the config.php file and you had to do it manually. Was rather strange...
