I'm working on a site that was built by someone else, and it was set up as a multi site installation, even though there is only one site on the sever. IE, the settings.php and files are in mysite.com directory of sites instead of the default directory. I'm working on revamping this site, so I've made a copy of the database and entire web directory and moved it to a virtual host on my Mac. When I first go to my virtual host, I get the install page, saying that I need to copy /sites/default/default.settings.php to /sites/default/settings.php and set the permissions, but it's completely ignoring the settings file at mysite.com/settings.php. If I copy the settings.php to the default folder, it recognizes that I have an existing site, and will load it and everything pretty much works.
I've read the documentation at http://drupal.org/documentation/install/multi-site, but I'm not understanding what needs to be sym linked (if it needs to be). I've also Googled for the solution, but I'm not getting good results.
How do I get the site to load with settings in sites/mysite.com/?
