First Post - Installing WordPress Multiblog on WAMP

- this post is under construction! -

I've been using a site up until now, but I've recently got a nice VPS of my own from and I've just finished installing Virtual Multiblog for WordPress on this WAMP-configured server. These are the steps I took to get here, standing on the shoulders of giant geeks 😉

1. Install WAMP as here:
2. Uninstall IIS
3. Edit root directory + dependents in Apache to the root of the wordpress folder
4. Edit datadir in C:\wamp\bin\mysql\mysql5.1.33\my.ini
5. Create new database - 'wordpress'
6. Create new user for the database
7. Follow these instructions:
8. Set-up VHOSTS to the hostnames
9. Install MySQL Service and Start it: and (C:\wamp\bin\mysql\mysql5.1.33\bin\mysqld --install)
10. It actually works.
