Feilong want to Install WordPress MU In Windows Localhost before I install it on the server.So I setup the famous windows loacalhost server WAMP in C:\wamp successfully.Then I put the wordpress mu files here as “C:\wamp\www\wpmu\” and tried to install wordpress mu through “http://localhost/wpmu”,but a Warning appeared：
Installing to http://localhost/ is not supported. Please use http://localhost.localdomain instead.
localhost.localdomain? What is the meanning? local virtualhost?How to set up virtual hosting in Windows system?Here is the answer below,
1.Start–>all programs–> right click the Notepad and select “Run As Administrator”.
3.Insert a line as:
4.Save and close the file.
5.Run “http://localhost.localdomain” in ie or firefox etc.wamp still goes well.
6.But now feilong can not open “http://localhost.localdomain/phpmyadmin/”.So feilong open “C:\wamp\apps\phpmyadmin220.127.116.11\config.inc.php”,and replace”localhost”to “localhost.localdomain”.A few minutes later I can open “http://localhost.localdomain/phpmyadmin/” aha！
7.Then “http://localhost.localdomain/phpmyadmin”,and creat a new database and user for the wordpress mu(（refer to http://feilong.org/wamp-setup-en）
8.Then “http://localhost.localdomain/wpmu”,begins wordpress mu installing on localhost!
