    I'm very new to WP.
    Where to I go on the dashboard, or elsewhere, to create several different blogs, each one with a unique domain name?

    Thanks,
    Michael

    If you installed the latest version of wordpress, ie 3.01 multisite,you login as super admin
    under super admin there are admin,sites,users,themes,options,update.
    These are network admin options
    with sites you hve the option to add new blogs, but they will all be of the format
    http://domain.com/blog1
    http://domain/blog2
    http://domain/blog3

    if you need different domains you will have to reinsatll on each individual domains

    eg
    http://Domain1
    http://domain2
    http://domain2

    As far as I know you are only allowed one network installation

  3. if you need different domains you will have to reinsatll on each individual domains

    eg
    http://Domain1
    http://domain2
    http://domain2

    As far as I know you are only allowed one network installation

    This is incorrect. :) Just pointing it out to lesson confusion.

    If you want a network of sites that have different domain names, use this plugin:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-mu-domain-mapping/

    You still need to create each site in the original subdomain or subfolder format.

    And yes, with a different plugin you can actually have multiple networks.

    Hi dbldee,
    Thanks for your reply.
    1. My server provides download of WP 3.0.1. Is this multisite by default?
    2. Not sure what you mean by logging in as super admin.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    Hi Andrea_r,
    Thanks for your reply.
    Can you recommend some WP training that goes through all of this step-by-step?

    Thanks,
    Michael

  6. 1. No, you have to enable it.
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network

    2. when you create a network (multisite) then you become a "super" admin of the entire network.

    Can you recommend some WP training that goes through all of this step-by-step?

    Aside from the link above? My blog. ;P

    Hi Andrea and thanks for the link. I'm don't think my technical skills in this field will quite cover what's needed for this.
    Maybe it would just be easier to install WP each time on a new domain each time?

    Michael

  8. If the codex page made you break out in a cold sweat, then yeah. Go with multiple installations of WP. :D

    OK.
    1. How many installations are possible?
    2. For eah one, will I need to direct it to a new path on my server such as
    //maindomainname.com/wordpress/newdomainname1
    ------------------------------/newdomainname2

    etc?

    Michael :)

    @micfir
    Michael
    The no of installations are unlimited, but performance may most likely depend on your server capacity.

    @Andrea_r
    Andrea
    The instructions refer to an wp-content/mu-plugins folder
    With present installation there is no mu-plugins folder
    Is this seperate from wp-content/plugins folder?

    thanks

  11. Yes, it;s separate from the /plugins folder. Just create it.
