    Can anyone give me an idea how I can set up 10 - 15 WP blogs quickly and easily.

    Don't need to have data in them, just default installs - I need them to do some testing on :)

    Need to have them on my hosting as well.

    Cheers

    Write an Imacro for fantastico, fattyboy :D

    I usually do that to create fresh wordpress installs. From there I´ve got a backup of a sql database and a wp-content folder developed until a sweet spot(yknow, common seo for all sites, plugins...). Got a macro for replacing the fresh install with the new database through phpmyadmin and the wp-content folder through the hosting web based ftp.

    From there I just work them up with the "unique" traits of every website such as theme, tags, content...

    lmao - forgotten about my fattyboy name :)

    TBH I forgot I had a reseller account set up on the cheap with Fantastico in so will be clicking the install button a few times on different subdirectories.

    Only want it to install an old version so I can test an auto updater bot on them (as well as plugins hopefully!)

    fattyboy signing off ;)
