I always forget how to setup a WordPress Network install (this is also called a WordPress multisite install). Here’s my quickstart configuration check list.

  1. Install a vanilla copy of WordPress from WordPress.org.†
  2. Open ‘wp-config.php’ and under the line that says “/* That’s all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */” add define(‘WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE’, true);
  3. Login to WordPress and go to Tools > Network Setup.
  4. Edit your Network Step information and click submit.
  5. Follow the instructions to edit you wp-config and htaccess files.
  6. You’ll be logged out once those changes have been make. Log back in.
  7. $$$ PROFIT!
