    Hi Everyone,
    First of all thank you for helping me.

    1.I am running WP 3.21 on windows IIS server space hosting. can i run wordpress multisite in windows hosting?.If so please refer me to the installation guidelines section please.

    2.I enabled multisite in my local WAMP server installation on Windows XP.
    After multisite installation,WP by default takes subdirectory installation.After that when i go to multisite admin page,
    WP page "add new site" "add new user" is being shown.After i click "add new site" the screen goes blank and nothing appears. i dont know what to do. if i refresh,a message " do you really want to do this" shows up and nothing happens . can somebody help me.

    Thanks in advance

  2. 1. Yes. It's the same as installing WordPress itself, but you have to know how to edit your .htaccess (or equivilent).

    2. Blank pages are usually PHP errors. Was WordPress working okay before you turned on MultiSite?

    Dear Ipstenu,
    Yes WP was working normally and i like this WP.
    Multisite installation asks me to replace .htaccess file. But i cannot find it anywhere in WP folder. When i create a .htaccess file with Editplus and save in WP root folder and then try to log in,i get a big error message:"Internal server error.Please contact your network administrator".Then once again when i delete the .htaccess file and then login ,i can go only to add site but after that screen goes blank.

    I tried with my hosting account.There i can add sites as subfolders.WP says site created,but when i visit those newly created sites,i get "page not found error". Neither i can find the newly created subfolders with filezilla on my domain.My host does not allow creation of wildcard subdomain and i have to install only as subfolders only.

    Thanks for your time and patience.

  4. Okay, this is all the same problem as this other topic: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/subdirectory-multisite-install?replies=5&message=closed

    The point is this: If you're using IIS and don't have apache and mod-rewrite, you need to modify your web.config file.
