    Hey there,

    I am a reseller and trying to test the new WordPress MU 1.0 release.

    Part of the installation requires changes to the httpd.conf file. These are the changes that it needs -

    1. Make sure a line like the following appears in your httpd.conf
    LoadModule rewrite_module /usr/lib/apache2/modules/mod_rewrite.so

    2. In the <Directory> directive of your virtual host, look for this
    "AllowOverride None"
    and change it to
    "AllowOverride FileInfo Options"

    3. In the <VirtualHost> section of the config file for your host there
    will be a line defining the hostname. You need to add the following
    if you want virtual hosts to work properly:
    "ServerAlias *.domain.tld"
    Replace domain.tld with whatever your one is, and remove the quotes.

    I looked under the domain settings for the the domain that I am trying to do this with but I could not and the wild card alias and I could not see where to change the other settings.

    Any suggestions?

    ok, you can't do it from control panel, but make a file named .htaccess in the domain root and it will do what you need :)

    My understanding of the .htaccess and httpd.conf is that they are 2 different things.

    Are you saying that I can put the httpd.conf commands in the .htaccess file and that they will work?

    Has anyone had any success with WorsPress Mu? The tech support crew are telling me it can't be run on the reseller hosting. Kind of disappointing.
