Using WordPress 3.0.1 network enabled and BuddyPress 188.8.131.52
I installed and configured Shardb with the following (db-settings.php):
$shardb_hash_length = 1;
$shardb_prefix = 'fansitep_';
$shardb_dataset = 'fansitepress';
$enable_home_db = false;
$num_vipdbs = 1;
$shardb_local_db = true;
I created my databases, all named fansitep_[0-9a-f], fansitep_global, and fansitep_vip1
when I create a site, the list of sites shows a dataset / partition value (for example, "fansitepress / fansitep_c" but it's actually setting up the tables in the global database and there's nothing in fansitep_c.
Also, it's telling me that my primary site, the base site, is in "fansitepress / fansite_9" which can't be.
