    I installed LAMP in my Ubuntu 10.04 by-
    sudo apt-get install lamp-server^
    (ref- http://tuxtweaks.com/2009/10/install-lamp-on-ubuntu-9-10-karmic-koala/)

    I unzipped wp3.0 in /var/www
    created new wp-config.php (as instructed during installation of wp with new 'DB_NAME' 'DB_USER' & 'DB_PASSWORD')

    Now it shows the dashboard properly at "http://localhost/wp-admin/"
    but on top beside the blog name there is no "visit site" link.
    and "http://localhost/" shows the following-

    It works!
    This is the default web page for this server.
    The web server software is running but no content has been added, yet.

    (PS: i would be grateful if someone shows me the way to install wp3.0 in ubuntu 10.04 from scratch- preferably with multi site enabled.)

    it works when wordpress is extracted inside another folder instead of extracting at /var/www

    i created a new folder named 'wordpress' and then extracted/unzipped wp3.0 in it and now it works.
    /var/www/wordpress

    and the site URL is-
    http://127.0.0.1/wordpress/
    (somehow http://localhost/wordpress/ doesn't work anymore. it used to work before installing network/multi site)
    i have got the "super admin" panel. and it shows the "network" tab under "tools". but after creating a new site it doesn't show the new site.

    someone please help me install multi site in ubuntu 10.04 localhost.
    i want to test the site before launching it.
