As we know wordpress 3.0 beta is released yesterday and as per wordpress team they merged the classic wordpress and wordpressMU.

But when we do installation of wordpress 3.0. There is no multiblog  facility available. For using the multiblog functionality we need to to some manual changes in code.

In this article I will tell you few steps about using the multiblog functionality in wordpress 3.0 beta.

First open the wp-config file and put following lines in that

define ('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true  ) ;

Use following steps also
1 First, back up your exisiting wp-config.php and .htaccess files.

2. Create a blogs.dir directory under /wp-content/
This directory is used to stored uploaded media for your additional sites and must be writeable by the web server. They should be CHOWNed and CHMODed the same as your wp-content folder.

3. Add the extra lines provided to your wp-config.php file

These lines are dynamicly generated for you based on your configuration.

Put these lines right under the wp_allow_multisite line, mostly for readability.
Note: If you are installing in a folder the base and path will contain the folder name.

4. Replace the content of your .htaccess file with the following

(If there isn’t one, then create it.)

These lines are dynamicly generated for you based on your configuration.

5. Once the above steps are completed and the new wp-config.php & .htaccess files are saved, refresh your dashboard.
You will now see a new menu section called Super Admin. The menus contained in there are for adding and managing additional sites in your network. Your base WordPress install is now the main site in your network.

Now you can do the installtion of wordpress 3.0 beta and you are able to use multiblog functionality in wordpress 3.0
