    I'm having problems installing wpmu.

    During install errors pop up about the tables not existing

    see below
    upon loading up the url to install wpmu i get the following error
    ***********************************************

    WordPress database error: [Table 'table.wp_sitemeta' doesn't exist]
    SELECT meta_value FROM wp_sitemeta WHERE meta_key = 'site_name' AND site_id = '1'

    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /usr/home/tthongs/domains/domain.com/public_html/wmu/wp-inst/wp-includes/wp-db.php:108) in /usr/home/tthongs/domains/domain.com/public_html/wmu/wp-inst/wp-admin/install.php on line 16
    ***********************************************

    if i continue the tables are created (checked via phpmyadmin) BUT wpmu says the tables do not exist.

    could anyone please give me a little guidance here?

    I've installed wp multiple times without any trouble whatsoever. I have absolutely no idea why it's doing this.

    cheers,
    Adam

    You mean the 'home page' right? Install is not the same for wpmu as it is for wp. Do NOT use wp-admin/install.php.

    so don't use wp-adimin/install.php? Why would that particular file be included inthe zip if it's NOT to be used? Also what file should I use to install wpmu?
    thanks

    to install WPMU just navigate your web browser to the root of where you have it installed. It installs from the index page.

    WordPress database error: [Table 'XXXXX_XXXXX.wpmu_sitemeta' doesn't exist]
    SELECT meta_value FROM wpmu_sitemeta WHERE meta_key = 'site_name' AND site_id = '1'

    CAN SOMEONE HELP? Thanks!

    adster, just visit the home page of your site and you will be presented with the WPMU install process. wpadmin/install.php is a part of wordpress which is the very core of WPMU so it is included in the distro file. It used to be disabled, but was recently re-enabled by the developers, for what reason I do not know, we don't use it here.

    Also in the WPMU distro file (and probably every other open source project on the planet) is a file called README.txt and it has very clear instructions on how to install WPMU.
