    Hello,

    I tried to install WPMU on my hosts' Windows (http://www.mordamus.com/webhosting/index.htm) server but i run into a few problems
    HTTP Error 500 because of the .htaccess
    if i'd remove .htaccess wpmu would word but users
    wouldn't be able to create blogs

    Is there a way to update or replace .htaccess to get it to work on this server?
    Obviously i can't edit the server/host so.. any ideas?

    thanks

    TzumB

    Get a Linux host - this is the best way

    WPMU requires Apache.

    WPMU works fine with Windows IIS6/IIS7 if php is configured properly and you use rewrite software, like isapi-rewrite version 3 (not a free software!). It can be found here: isapirewrite.com

    Without a rewrite software that is compatible with apache mod-rewrite it will NOT work.

    Basically you have to have a flexible host or you really have to have your own server for that. Hosting companies will seldom work.
