    I'm like to simplify access to the blogs on my server which are currently accessed by a standard "" URL and instead use just "" without the "/wordpress", so users can just type "". What's the easiest way to accomplish this?

    Running WPMU 1.5.1. Dedicated server - have root access.

    You should have installed MU in the root of the site, not in a subdirectory.

    I should have isn't really that helpful I'm afraid.

    Is it possible to move the WPMU install to the root of the site and make configuration/DB changes to reflect this? Or is it much more trouble than its worth?

    I've decided what I'm going to do.

    Since this server is for more than WPMU and I don't want to affect the address, I'm going to use name-based apache vhosts and mod_rewrite rules in the vhost webroot.

    This is a more elegant solution, for me at least.
