    FYI, it would be similar to the service offerd by wordpress.com, thanks again

    When you say a new BuddyPress install, do you mean a complete fresh new install of BuddyPress, allowing a separate database and user tables for each sub domain? If so, that’s a little outside the scope of what this forum provides.

    You might want to try talking to some server admins and see about maybe having a VPS setup, or some kind of reseller account?

    @Bercy Just install your WordPress MU in a different directory; create a new database, preferably with a new user for security and you\’ve got it working …

    With a fresh user and database you won\’t be overwriting your existing bp\’s.

    If you want to use the same userdatabase and share it serverwide, use the same database but change the prefix per buddypress installation.

    Hope that has answered your question with virtual hosting & wordpress ..

    I wish it was as easy to migrate existing data towards upgraded BP\’s ;)

    @freaking wildchild, so is it possible to use a form to do this, ie when people sign up it makes a new sub-directory with buddypress and wordpress installed, and it uses the username to make the sub link, are you able to point me in the direction to do a form like this, dont have a clue where to start, thanks

    \”it would be similar to the service offerd by wordpress.com\”

    But WordPressMU does this by default when a user gets their own blog.

    Getting each one to have their own *separate* BP is the issue.

    Why not just stick with the one install, have each troop make their own ground and their own blog? This way they have theor own sace, but can still interact with the entire site at large.

    @Bercy: It’s wp-signup.php etc.. it’s possible to seperate all buddypress installations, although you’ve have to be creative which databases and scripts you are going to talk to when.

    Ahah, you’ve conceive the idea of BuddyPress MU

    I think when BP will be a plugin for WP this plugin will start the game :)

    If you can install it on wp it means you can install it on a single blog, that means you can install it on a mu blog ( a subdomain or a subdirectory as you want )
