What is the URL? Will there be access to the Administration Panel?

 From the command-line:

$ php
Content-type: text/html
X-Powered-By: PHP/4.3.10

If you have cPanel, more details will show up in the main panel.

An  issue  was raised about a month ago. There was an ambiguity which  in-
volved  URL  delimiters,  which were said to be either  spaces  or  commas
(these  lead  to yet another ambiguity). Which did you try? I can  vividly
recall doing a test with multiple blogs and posting about success with the
lastest nightly (at the time... January-ish).

This sounds as though the URL's are not properly separated.
