    So what is the blogs.dir? I'm assuming it's for multisite, but I'm not using this. Can I just delete the directory?

    Hi rwilki,

    Where are you seeing the blogs directory? Is it in the same folder where you installed WordPress? If you could take a screen shot or give us a link to where you are seeing this it would be very helpful.

    Thanks!

    it's in wp-content directory.

    blogs.dir
    index.php
    languages
    plugins
    themes
    upgrade
    uploads

    not sure why languages is there either...

    Hello rwilki,

    It sounds like you started to create a network (formerly Multisite) as that is not a folder in the standard WordPress installation, it's one you create when you're setting up a network with WordPress. If you're installing WordPress manually, please make sure you're following these instructions:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress

    If you've gotten off track with the installation, you may want to clear the files out and restart the installation process.

    Hope this helps!

    that's really strange. I've done multiple wp installations. I did this one through a cpanel installer, maybe I wasn't paying attention. everything seems to be working fine though... i might just delete the extra directories.

    Thanks,
    Bob
