    HI all.

    I have setup Multisite Network and Its working fine,Now I want to Install New Blog on Multisite, How I install it. From Network Panel I can create a Site, but how how to setup database for this I mean, I want to use single database for all blogs, should I use the same database details or table prefix ?

    I am confused here, If you could explain me in simple steps .

    Everything will automatically work from the same database that is defined in your wp-config.php file. The new sites you create from the Network dashboard will simply generate new tables in your database, incorporating their site ID in the table prefix i.e. wp_12_postmeta for the site with the ID 12.

    Your subsites will work automatically when you create them. If they don't there is likely another issue and not the DB. Are you using subdirectories or subdomains? If its subdomains then make sure you have wildcard subdomains configured for your main domain.

    It appears you have a subdomain configuration. Otherwise it would be abc.com/classified.

    As for it not showing anything on the front end...first off, does that mean it DOES show something on the back end? If that is the case then you have either a theme or plugin problem. If neither the front end or back end of the sub site are accessible than my first guess would be that you do not have wildcard subdomains configured in your host.

    To setup wildcard subdomains you just need to go into your hosting account and add a subdomain that has * as its value and points to the same directory as your WordPress installation. This should do it as long as your host allows wildcard subdomains.

    also My users are not showing in classified.abc.com, It only shows my account ,I want to use same users for all

    Users are not automatically added to each subsite by default. You would normally have to manually add them by either editing the site within the network dashboard on the Users tab or by going to the dashboard of the subsite as an administrator and using the "Add existing user" option on Add New under users.

    There are also plugins that can help with this. Join my multisite is pretty cool and has an auto add option. Multisite user management is also very useful for this kind of thing.

    Thanks, I Changed my Subdmain to Sub-directory, bcz For Subdomains We need dedicated IP from Godaddy Hosting to use wildcards subdomains. now with subdirectory its working fine, but You know the URLs are not user friendly, Its showing like

    abc.com/classified/2013/10/18/hello-world/

    If it like this
    abc.com/classified/hello-world/ the Its Good

    That should just be a matter of your permalink settings for the individual sites. Settings- - >Permalinks. You're indicating the "post name" structure, I believe.
