Multisite install on Wamp (6 posts)

    Hi,
    I hope someone can assist.
    I have been working on local host using WAMP to design a website, all going well. Now I have tried to install multisite to create a couple of subdirectories.
    I have followed the instructions, turning off plugins etc and then changing the wp-config.php and the htaccess areas with the info given on the install page. Re-logged on and then the local host doesn't show, I get the "Error connecting to the Database" page. I retrace my steps and by removing the added code in the config.php page and re-loading I can then open the local host page again.
    It is here where I am stuck.
    Any help would be most welcome and please keep it simple.
    Thanks

    The problem with multisite most people do not understand is multisite is not meant for a developer, it is meant for a school or large organization. Multisite uses multisites on one db; transferring for a client is difficult. Developers usually use subdomains with multiple installations. You would use multisite if you had multiple user or department that you would want to have different sites. I hope this helps.

    Thanks for your reply redbobo. I will look into the subdomain system.
