Yep, it'll give you an upgrade notice if you're on the RC & they do a release.

Understood.

I have another site in which I haven't installed standlone Wordpress and I'm planning to follow why I'm doing in 'samplesite.com', that is, having my main domain for the English version and the subdomain for the Spanish version.

If I install Wordpres 3.0 RC .. would I be able to upgrade to the final Wordpress 3.0 without uninstalling/installing anything?

Thanks for your help andrea_r

Well, in the past you'd have to tear down your WP install and replace it with WPMU.

But don't.

WPMU is no longer being developed as the project is now rolled in with single WordPress. Just wait until 3.0 comes out. which should be soon. Like a week or two.

Or you can upgrade now to the release candidate.

Then, you can simple turn on the mu bits.

Hello everyone;

First, I'd like to say I'm completely new to Wordpress MU. In fact, just two days ago I learned about MU.

I have been using WP for one month and it's been a process to familiarize with the WP structure.

I have currently my site with several webpages and its blog (WP) and I have lately thought of making a Spanish version of my entire website including its own blog.
My site's blog is found as a sub-dictory http://samplesite.com/blog
so the Spanish version blog would be -> http://es.samplesite.com/blog

Like I said, I didn't know about MU till two days ago, I had previously thought I had to install a second wordpress but now for this subdomain in order to create another blog. (Yeah, that's how much a newbie I am to WP)

Now, the thing is .. I've googled for step-by-step guides to upgrade from the regular Wordpress to Wordpress MU but having found anything :( . Now, I suppose I need to back up all my posts, widgets, plug-ins, theme, etc so I don't lose them.
So, if someone would be so kindly to guide me in this process .. I'd appreciate a lot!!!
Thanks in advance :)

Why not use DNS forwarding and masking? If you're just using the same content, wouldn't it be simpler?




andrea_r on "Introduction and Complete Guide to MU WP Installation?"

Yes, the upgrade is done from one spot. Because you still only have one codebase to work with.

My advice is to actually install it somewhere, and poke around the backend.

Important : I need only to update and manage wordpress structure (wordpress version and plugins versions) NOT the content.
that is why I am looking for a single administration interface.

Can I use 1 WP MU Installation to upgrade or Manage other WP Blogs? Like Plug-ins or WP Upgrades?

You need the domain mapping plugin:
http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-mu-domain-mapping/

While you will be using one WPMU install to control all the blogs, you still have to login to the backend of each to manage them.

install WPMU.
install the domain mapping plugin.
Set up your blogs.

holler if you get stuck.

You can't use WP MU to control 4 blogs with one backend (as far as I know), but you can use it to have 4 blogs with 4 dashboards running on the same codebase, and easy to upgrade etc.

All you need to do, is to install WP MU on one of the domains, create 3 more blogs, and point your other domains to the addresses of the other blogs.

Hello,

I am not new to WP, but I am definitely new to WP MU. I have 4 domains and I want them to be controlled with single Backend.

For Example:

example1.com
exmaple2.org
example3.net
example4.biz

What should I do to make them all work together? I want to control all example2-4 from example1.com.

Should I install MU WP on example1 and simple WP's on other example domains or should I install MU WP on all 4 domains? I am so confused. can anyone please guide me on this.

Thanks

Sitewide tags plugin owrks on a subdirectory setup of WpMU.




wobean on "After creating new blogs it won't let me visit them."

Thu, 09 Jul 2009 05:30:16 +0000

Thanks for the help. I think I'm just going to use sub-directories instead. The only problem with sub-directories is that site-wide tags don't work right?

It's true in their case, as those are the only accounts they will support WPMU on.

(so... yes to both.)

And they have done something to their lower level accounts to make WPMU impossible to run on. Not one of the better hosts out there, that's for sure.

Okay. I'm using GoDaddy hosting and I asked their customer support about it and they said that I need to upgrade to a Deluxe hosting account for it to work. Is that true or are they just trying to get me to waste my money?

You didn't enable wildcard subdomains on your server. It's all in the readme.

- wildcard subdomain have to be enabled in Apache's httpd.conf file
- you also need a wildcard subdomain A record in your DNS

I'm creating a test website for a friend to show them what BuddyPress can do before we install it on their site. After creating a new blog, when I try to visit it, it sends me to the OpenDNS Guide and says, "You tried to visit exampleblog.fref.org, which is not loading."

(Yes, "exampleblog" is actually a blog I made on it.)

I tried a new install of WordPress MU with BuddyPress on a different site with a different hosting plan and it did the same thing.
The only plugin I have running on either is BuddyPress.

I would really appreciate some help.
Thanks.

Glad you like it guys - while some of it is premium related I reckon 80% applies to every install so with luck it's the best of both worlds.

We're always happy to take requests too :)

Thank you James. That was an amazing gift to the community plus great marketing for the premiums. You pretty much covered the minute details. Kudos.

i'm sorry, i'm still not getting it. what i[m trying to do it make domain.tld/randomblog look like randomblog.tld. there's clear tutorial for subdomains, but i'm coming up very short on a subdir resolution.

do i add a line to htaccess telling it to look for mu's index.php?




helmi on "Multi-Site Manager Tutorial?"

@demonicume: subfolder in WPMU speech do have nothing to do with subfolders at your providers domain settings to route domains to.

For wpmu to work with multisite plugin you have to be able to route all domains to your main folder of wpmu so all to the same folder. Every domain that should be with wpmu must call the index.php or the respective .htaccess in the main wpmu folder. otherwise this couldn't work.




demonicume on "Multi-Site Manager Tutorial?"

Wed, 06 Feb 2008 00:35:50 +0000

anyone gotten this to work with subdirs?

Normally in order to set up a main domain to use a subfolder you need to set up a redirect in the .htaccess file in the public_html folder so that the server knows that any request for your main domain will be redirected to a subfolder on public_html.

but since mu does everything statically i'm kinda lost as to what to try next,




peiqinglong on "Multi-Site Manager Tutorial?"

You could, but then wouldn't it be just easier to do it all manually then? It's like taking all the crap lying on the floor in the living room and sweeping it to the closet. It works, but when you need something you'll spend a lot more time digging in the closet then if you just put things where they belong with in the first place.

Does it help if I simply select 'clone 'whichever blog works fine'' and then make my changes individually to the blog from there?




peiqinglong on "Multi-Site Manager Tutorial?"

Tue, 05 Feb 2008 15:51:45 +0000

pipelineae: There doesn't seem to be any adverse effect yet. But imagine when you're dealing with 1000 blogs and you have to make a direct edit to the database. You normally would go to sitemeta to find what the blog ID is...

Trent: You also have to duplicate the site-admins entry to each mapped domain or the Site Admins tab won't show up in the mapped domain.




Trent on "Multi-Site Manager Tutorial?"

Tue, 05 Feb 2008 15:09:21 +0000

Another thing about the multi-site manager plugin is unless I am missing something, you have to use the Site-Admin to upgrade each of the domains you put on there. If you have many domains, this can be a pain as well.

What effect does the non-matching of tables have in the long run? Like, I haven't noticed any side-effects yet, but if there's something I should watch out for in the future if I use MSM, then I should know I guess..
