    What if you could try your set-up all over from scratch :)

    Though I am running a WPMU +BP set up currently, I will be opening a new BP site soon.

    As WP 3.0 is in alpha and will merge with WPMU soon, but I do still have plenty of time to go live (3.0 should be out by then), would you recommend to:

    - Use WPMU 2.9.1.1 and BP 1.2?

    - Use WP 3.0 (alpha or trunk) and BP1.2?

    Is there any preference over one against the other, for easy of installation, merge/upgrade, risk of MYSQL upgrade failure etc?

    I have not tried the 3.0 yet, but am wondering about the built-in WPMU functionality:

    - I assume it will need a wildcard entry in the HTTPD.conf file as per WPMU or will this change?

    Thanks in advance,

    Cheers, Harry

    If you don’t want user blogs then just use WP 2.9.1 and BP 1.2.

    Thanks for the quick reply Andy. Sorry, forgot to mention, that yes, I will be offering user blogs (the ‘network’ setting on new WP?).

    What would you recommend in ths case, for a cleanest possible install with less chance of failure when upgrading to WP3.0 when released?

    Thanks, Harry

    If you need user blogs, then install WPMU.

    “I assume it will need a wildcard entry in the HTTPD.conf file as per WPMU or will this change?”

    If you want subdomain blogs, yes you still need wildcards.

    BuddyPress — even on the most recent, cutting-edge “trunk” versions — is not built and has not been tested against WordPress 3.0-alpha. I am not Andy but I would guess that it is not going to be tested against WP 3.0 until it gets to a release candidate version.

    So in the interim, YMMV.
