Well, it's been awhile but I finally installed the 3.0 RC and can't find the last post asking about it and don't recall the replies, so will start fresh.
I have my main website in the root domain, and have other areas - so I do not want a blog in the root that is accessed via my main url. I do have 2 blogs in subdirectories but will change those shortly, they're a non issue so far, however they're both on 2.9. I haven't gotten too far into 3.0 so if I have to scrap it and start over, so be it. Currently, I have 3.0 set up as such: domain.com/wordpress3.0 All I've really done has been to set up the dashboard and install a handful of themes.
So what I would like to do is learn how to set the 3.0 to the multisite option, and have the 2 blogs and others in with the 3.0 set up (I know I will have to redo those, not a problem).
Not sure how the new set up would be accessed, but currently the two blogs are domain.com/blog 1 and etc. /blog 2 - how do I set up 3.0 to have additional blogs without putting everything in the root, and if that isn't possible (bleh), how *do* I set it up so that the blogs or the main 3.0 installation is NOT being accessed directly via domain.com?
I'd want all the blogs to be able to share all the themes and plugins, one main admin (me), and will not be offering a blogging service to anyone else, so all the multiblogs are my own. I'm reading over the forums to find the answers but right now I'm really overwhelmed and lost. Any help is greatly appreciated!
