Wordpress MU


I'm planing to install a new server with wordpress MU. As I love virtualmin and that it has a wp mu script, I'm considering getting virtualmin pro.

One question though, I want to have my blog in this way : user.domain.com instead of www.domain.com/user

Is it possible with the install script provided with virtualmin ? If not, has anyone been able to sort-of streamline the process ?



ps : If I get a 10domains license, am I stuck at the 10th domain or can I add a 11th one with limited features as in virtualmin gpl ?

Don't worry, we didn't forget about you :-)

While I'm not super-familiar with WordPress MU, you should be able to do what you're after.

What you would do is:

  1. Create a catch-all Sub-Server, by first creating a Sub-Server such as wpmu.example.com, then go into Server Configuration -> Website Options, and set "Website matches all sub-domains".

  2. Install WPMU on the wpmu.example.com Sub-Server.

Now, going to ANYTHING.example.com will take you to your WPMU installation -- so you should be able to use USER.example.com as you were after.

Does that answer your question for WPMU?

Regarding the licensing -- yeah, the Pro version is the Pro version, it doesn't fall back to working as the GPL version if you exceed the license limit.

Have a good one,
