To get your subdomains to work you have to edit the ‘hosts’ file in windows for *each* blog you want to have running on your windows box. The hosts file is in:

Windows 95/98/Me c:windowshosts

Windows NT/2000/XP Pro c:winntsystem32driversetchosts

Windows XP and Vista c:windowssystem32driversetchosts

Once you find it you have to create a line for each blog so:

That’s a sample from my laptop which I use to play with new things in mu, buddypress and bbpress. This is only the beginning of your problems on windows. I know I went thru *all* of them.

However, for now, you should replace the domain name with your chosen domain name. Replace the subdomain name with any blog subdomain name you’ve chosen. ‘trial’ in your case.

Try reading up on what it takes to install mu. Then what it takes to install mu on windows. Google finds lots of things related to mu. Here’s a start:

You also need to follow the directions in the mu readme.txt file as it relates to apache.
