Is it possible to create a local wordpress network install on a mac (10.6) using mamp with subdomains? I have tried following some instructions I came across while googling, but apache seems to get hosed when I create virtual hosts. I came across another set of instructions that said only subdirectories will work on a local install. Does anyone know which one of these is the case and have you come across a good set of instructions for how to do it?
