How to set up WPMU on GoDaddy

OK, if you’ve read the instructions on how to install WPMU on GoDaddy’s FAQs they omit a little bit of code you need in your wpconfig.php file:
/* Multisite */
define(‘WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE’, true);

You *MUST* include the “/* Multisite */” part.

Once you’ve done that log into your word press site, go to “Tools” and “Network Setup” Follow the instructions in there.

It will have you add more code to your .htaccess and wpconfig.php files:

Add this after define(‘WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE’, true);

define(‘MULTISITE’, true);
define(‘SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL’, true);
define(‘DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘’);
define(‘PATH_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘/’);
define(‘SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE’, 1);define(‘BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE’, 1);


# add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
RewriteRule ^wp-admin$ wp-admin/ [R=301,L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
RewriteRule ^ – [L]
RewriteRule ^(wp-(content|admin|includes).*)YourDomainName/$1 [L]
RewriteRule ^(.*\.php)$ YourDomainName/$1 [L]
RewriteRule . index.php [L]

Make sure that you add this after the code you put in the first step in your wpconfig.php. Also make sure you rename your htaccess file back to .htaccess (not .htaccess.txt). Enjoy. BTW you need to set up either wildcards or a records to get subdomains to work on Godaddy.
